  • Helping hand Donald Trump welcomes Leo Varadkar to the White House

Amid this week's Westminster turmoil, Mr Trump criticised British Prime Minister Theresa May's handling of the UK's departure from the EU.

On the prospect of another referendum, he said: 'I don't think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people that won.

He said: "I'm surprised at how badly it's all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation".

"The president, who described Brexit as a" lovely, attractive thing" during a visit to Scotland in June 2016, said the UK's divorce from the European Union is "tearing apart" Britain and other member states which he believes is "a shame". I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly. Mr Trump said he had seen Mr O'Rourke's announcement and said: "I've never seen so much hand movement".

Britain is set to exit the European Union on March 29, but lawmakers voted Thursday to allow the government to seek a delay to the Brexit date.

He said he would like to see the "whole situation with Brexit work out", adding "we are talking with them about trade and we can do a very big trade deal with the UK". "The potential is unlimited!"

"You've got a very interesting view on it, and I appreciate you letting me know what's going on over there". Mr Murphy said, 'Brexit, and the uncertainty surrounding it, poses unique and hard challenges for Ireland and Irish business.

"If they don't talk to us we're going to do something that's very severe economically", Trump said.

The visit and the news conference were the day after the June 23 Brexit vote, not the day before.

Pence called Varadkar's remarks at Thursday's breakfast "inspiring words".

The two leaders discussed Brexit as well as a number of Irish-US specific matters.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar brought his partner, Matthew Barrett, with him to breakfast with Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday.

Mrs Foster, who is in Washington for St Patrick's Day, invited Mr Trump to The Open at Royal Portrush in July as she attended a lunch on Capitol Hill addressed by the President.

Of his Irish grandfather, VP Pence said: "He was proud of being American but I can still hear that Irish brogue".

"The United States and the Republic of Ireland have such close ties that it's unlikely that anything permanently damaging would happen", McMahon said.

"We talked about Brexit, something that is turning out to be a little more complex than they thought it would be". "One way or the other it's going to work out".
