Donald Trump confirms Irish visit during Leo Varadkar meeting

US President Donald Trump has said he will visit Ireland and would go to the border.

He met Irish premier Leo Varadkar at the White House and said the trip could happen next year.

The Taoiseach met the President as part of a traditional programme of events ahead of St Patrick's Day.

President Trump was asked by reporters if he would like to visit Ireland soon.

He said: "I will. I love it, I love it.

"I have property there and I might not get to see it again, but I will."

President Trump owns a golf course at Doonbeg in Co Clare.

The Taoiseach admitted he did not play golf but said he was always ready to learn and the President could take him for a few rounds.

On the Irish border, Mr Trump said: "That is an interesting border also, we have two interesting borders", an apparent allusion to the US/Mexico frontier where he wants to build a wall.
