Leo Varadkar To Meet Trump And Pence In Washington

Share this article


The Taoiseach is set to meet both the US President and Vice-President in Washington today.

It's all part of of Leo Varadkar's packed schedule which will see him make two trips to the White House,  a breakfast with Mike Pence, lunch on Capitol Hill and the annual bowl of shamrock ceremony with Donald Trump.

Strengthening Irish-American relations will top the agenda between the two leaders.

Brexit will be raised, with the Taoiseach saying he intends to raise any future trade deal between the US and the UK and urging no trade deal be done with the UK that would ever undermine the peace process.

He will also raise the plight of the undocumented Irish in America.

Before all that however, Leo Varadkar will attend a breakfast with US Vice-President, Mike Pence.

Mr. Pence - who has been criticised in the past for his views on LGBT rights - invited the Taoiseach and his partner Matthew Barrett to breakfast this time last year.
