President Trump talks trade & economic relations with Irish prime minister

15 Mars, 2019, 06:39 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Mr Trump also used Mr Varadkar's visit to the White House yesterday to warn Ireland and the EU the U.S. is "going to tariff a lot of their products coming in because the European Union treats us very, very unfairly".

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

"I will tell you, I'm surprised at how badly it's all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation", Trump said, sounding like he wasn't that surprised at all. "I regret that Brexit's happening and the United Kingdom was a really important part of the European Union".

At the event, President Trump described Irish people as inspiring, sharp, and smart, but brutal enemies you have to keep as your friends.

"She's got to do what she's got to do but I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly".

He added: "I hate to see everything being ripped apart right now", and said he didn't think a second referendum would be possible. Pence, on the other hand, is a socially conservative Christian who has always been criticised by LGBTQ advocates for pursuing policies that they say hurt the gay community while he was governor of Indiana.

The Irish PM said the most pressing issue facing his country was how to settle questions about the future of the border between Ireland, an European Union member, and Northern Ireland, which won't be.

He also warned of tariffs being applied on the European Union if trade talks with the United States falter.

"We talked about Brexit, something that is turning out to be a little more complex than they thought it would be".

"What I've asked for is an understanding of our situation, particularly when it comes to Northern Ireland and avoiding a hard Border and protecting the peace process".

But the tensions over Brexit served this year to highlight a divide between the two countries with Ireland embracing the E.U.as Trump questions why European nations continue to marry their economies together instead of going it alone on issues like trade.

USA president Donald Trump has said that he will visit Ireland this year.

Last year, Vice President Pence reportedly extended an invitation to Varadkar and Barrett to visit him and his wife Karen at their Washington, DC residence.

The prime minister said while their views on Brexit differ, the relationship between the US and Ireland remains strong. "It's a special place".
