Trump questions Britain's handling of Brexit, eyes bilateral trade deal

Mr Murphy said, 'promoting Ireland as a leading centre globally for international dispute resolution and other legal services is a key initiative in the Government's priority to minimise the impact on trade and the economy.' The law society wants to see increased worldwide legal work in a sector 'which already generates €2.46 billion annually in turnover and contributes at least €1.6 billion GVA (gross value added) to the Irish economy, ' Mr Murphy concluded.

"You've got a very interesting view on it, and I appreciate you letting me know what's going on over there".

President Donald Trump meets with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in the Oval Office of the White House, Thursday, March 14, 2019, in Washington. "I regret that Brexit's happening and the United Kingdom was a really important part of the European Union".

The bowl presented to Mr Trump, in the company of his wife, Melania, was made at Kilkenny Crystal in Callan, the home town of Irish-American architect James Hoban.

DONALD TRUMP has said he is surprised at the way Brexit has been handled - and blamed Theresa May for ignoring his advice.

Trump said that Brexit is "tearing countries apart".

'I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly.

As is the norm on the St. Patrick's weekend, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is in the White House for the regular meeting.

Mr Trump has said he will be visiting the Republic of Ireland at some point this year.

The House of Commons will hold another series of crunch votes later today focusing on whether to delay Brexit by requesting an extension to Article 50, the legal mechanism countries use to leave the EU. "I hate to see everything being ripped apart now".

MPs have rejected May's withdrawal agreement by huge margins twice and will next vote on delaying Brexit on Thursday night. "There is very deep-seated animosity within the Irish government to Brexit".

Pence called Varadkar's remarks at Thursday's breakfast "inspiring words". Varadkar said he appreciates what the president has done for his country economically.

The annual Shamrock Presentation between the Taoiseach and the President of the United States has taken place.


Brexit won't spoil the relationship, even given Trump's history of turning on leaders who cross him, said Marquette University historian Timothy G. McMahon, president of the American Conference for Irish Studies. "Friendly disagreements happen in diplomacy all the time".

"But it will all work out, everything does, one way or the other".
