Protests are already being planned ahead of Donald Trump’s visit to Ireland next month.
The US President will arrive here between June 5 and 8 following his State visit to the UK.
Yesterday the Health Minister Simon Harris said, despite disagreeing with his political views, Mr Trump is welcome.
However, Labour Senator Aodhán Ó Ríordáin said he is ready to protest against the US President’s visit.
Mr Ó Ríordáin said: “Donald Trump for me, and I think for many Irish people, is the international face of hate.
“I wish he wasn’t coming, but if he is to come, it would be a very bad day for Ireland if we didn’t tell him exactly how we feel about him.”
