I welcome the democratically elected POTUS. Adams and Co are welcomed and they are ersponsible for multiple killingsHe should be told that in no uncertain terms he is not welcome in Ireland, and even if he does come no minister epescally the Taoiseach or president should indulge his idiotcy by meeting him offically or unofficially!
I doubt the Trump supporters in this country would be into such nonsense as most of us work and are far to busy to take a trip to Clare just to watch him unwind and play some golf.no doubt there will be a spike the sales of tiki torches for the trump supporter rally..
I would not go that far ....... but it is a private visit, and Trump will be mainly visiting his own property.He should of course be given a cordial welcome here at Official level
The US has been a good friend to Ireland over many many decades & has huge investments here
- as has Donald Trump
The Government should do what is in Ireland's best interests
- & Damn the Bemoaners!
I don't think Trump knows how to stay in the background. Irish media will do their best to keep him in the foreground as will politicians using him to try and get 2 mins national attention.I would not go that far ....... but it is a private visit, and Trump will be mainly visiting his own property.
On the credit side:
- - Doonbeg and Co Clare will appear on prime time US TV. Can't be bad.
- - For a private visit, pomp and officialdom can be kept to a minimum. No honorary degrees or addressing the Dail,. Our own President can sit on or in his Aras, and not be bothered. The Taoiseach may have to step up.
- - No real debits to Ireland. A cool & dignified protest would be appropriate, I think, but my expectation is that Trump will stay in the background.
