President Trump talks trade & economic relations with Irish prime minister

The US President said Brexit is "tearing countries apart" but it would be unfair to hold a second referendum.

He lamented that the country is "being ripped apart" because of a long-standing political crisis that gripped the government and parliament. "I don't think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people who won, who say, 'What do you mean you're going to take another vote?' That will be tough".

"We have a different opinion", he said, referring to the president.

Mr Murphy and law society president Patrick Dorgan travelled to Washington DC where the Government's "Ireland: An worldwide legal centre" initiative was launched at the Irish Embassy as part of the St Patrick's Day celebrations. "We're going to tariff a lot of their products coming in because the European Union treats us very, very unfairly", he said.

But despite criticising Mrs May's approach at the negotiating table, Mr Trump reiterated his desire for a strong UK-US trade deal.

He also said another vote on Brexit would be unfair, and reiterated that he would like to see a USA trade deal with the United Kingdom after it leaves the EU.

Mr Varadkar made the comments alongside his partner during a meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence.

In a tweet, Mr Varadkar said: "Vice President Mike Pence invited me and Matt to his home at the Naval Observatory this morning".

Meanwhile, Trump claimed that the United States "will stay right in our lane".

"We shouldn't have a hard border or anything to obstruct the peace process".

DONALD TRUMP will make his long-awaited visit to the Republic of Ireland later this year.

The Taoiseach said: "It's not particularly support that I've asked for from the president on Brexit".

Mr Varadkar is Ireland's first openly gay leader and one of very few openly gay national leaders in the world.

"I think that the relationship between Ireland and the USA is long-lasting - it's strong", Varadkar told The Washington Post in an interview on Wednesday.

Nile Gardiner, a former aide to British prime minister Margaret Thatcher and director of the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom at the Heritage Foundation, said Trump "has been very clear in his view that Brexit is great for America and for Britain".

Afterwards Mr Varadkar said he had a "really good meeting" with President Trump.

Pence glossed over the Brexit disagreement as he welcomed Varadkar for the breakfast, and grew nostalgic as he recounted his grandfather's emigration from Ireland and his own affection for the country.
