WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump will visit Ireland during his upcoming trip to Europe to attend commemorations for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the White House said Tuesday.

Trump accepted an invitation from Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar and the pair will hold a bilateral meeting in Shannon in western Ireland on June 5, according to the White House.

The president and first lady Melania Trump are set to make a state visit from June 3 to 5 to Britain, where they are expected to be met by large protests.

Trump is then set to meet French President Emmanuel Macron on June 6 as part of events in Normandy to mark the 75th anniversary of the Allied landings during World War II.
