The Deputy Leader of the Green Party says she would like to meet Donald Trump during his visit to Ireland to discuss his views on race, the environment and gender.

The presumptive Republican nominee comes to Ireland in two weeks time and Catherine Martin TD has invited Mr Trump to meet her as she says the opportunity for dialogue should be used.

Catherine Martin says she would like to sit down with him so he can face his fear of women.

“I have used the opportunity of the convention to invite Mr Trump to maybe face two of his main fears, women and the environment,” the Dublin Rathdown TD said.

“Myself and Senator Grace O'Sullivan of the Green Party are inviting him to meet us because we feel that there's an opportunity there that it's important to talk to him and say we have huge concerns about what he's saying on race, religion, women.”

During the week a group agreed to hold protests in Dublin and Clare during the visit in what they call a display of “international solidarity against racism, sexism and discrimination”.

The demonstration in Dublin will take place at 6pm on June 23rd on O’Connell Street.

Activists will also be bussed from the capital to join local groups protesting in the west, contingent on Trump's itinerary being confirmed, organisers said.
