Helping hand Donald Trump welcomes Leo Varadkar to the White House

Mr Trump said he would like to see Brexit "work out", adding, "we are talking with them about trade and we can do a very big trade deal with the UK".

Trump did state his belief that Varadkar is now in a "complicated position" due to Brexit and stated his belief that the European Union has treated the USA "very unfairly" over the years.

Speaking at the Naval Observatory, Varadkar touched briefly on his sexual orientation. More than 30 million Americans, or about one in 10, have Irish ancestry.

Just ahead of Saint Patrick's Day, Ireland's openly gay prime minister Leo Varadkar and his boyfriend had brunch with the one and only Mike Pence.

"Greater trade between us reinforces a comprehensive alliance that goes far beyond the economic, providing for our national security and bringing prosperity to our people", Fox said in a statement in response to Trump's tweet.

For most USA presidents, the kitschy tribute to Ireland is good politics.

Our infamously anti-LGBTQ Vice President hosted the prime minister during his visit to the White House.

The US president also discussed Varadkar's reputation in Ireland and said that: "The people love him - that's very important".

"Many of the traditions this president violates pertain to political etiquette and expectations", aid Kathleen Costello-Sullivan, a historian at Le Moyne College.

Trump also announced that he intends to visit Ireland during 2019. "The potential is unlimited!"

The truck involved in the encounter has since been recovered, though the murder weapon has not, according to the police official. An assistant DA there referred a reporter to the office's public information officer, who was not immediately available.

"I particularly want to thank you for your help with the plant in the west of Ireland where hundreds of jobs were threatened as a result of the Russian sanctions", he stated.

At the Capitol Hill lunch hosted by Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Mr Varadkar avoided remarks similar to his infamous windfarm gaffe past year.

"I will tell you, I'm surprised at how badly it has all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation".

Today the Taoiseach will leave Washington and travel to Chicago to meet emigrant support groups.

"I will be coming at some point this year", he said.

However, Trump was referring to his trip to his own luxury golf club in Scotland.

Speaking on Thursday, Trump then took aim at the possibility of a second referendum on leaving the European Union, which he deemed "unfair" on those who had campaigned successfully for Brexit in 2016.

"I think it'll be a few years until the United Kingdom sorts itself out", predicted Varadkar.

"I hate to see everything being ripped apart right now", Trump said, according to Politico.

British trade minister Liam Fox said Trump had shown his ambition for a trade agreement and he looked forward to sitting down at the negotiating table to strengthen the trading relationship.
