Trump warns Taoiseach of European Union tariff war

President Trump on Thursday declared that Europe was "being ripped apart" by the chaos caused by Brexit, as the United Kingdom continued struggling to manage a workable exit from the EU.

"Thanks to the Vice President and his sister for a lovely morning at his home". More than 30 million Americans, or about one in 10, have Irish ancestry.

Trump, during the traditional St. Patrick's Day seasonal meeting here between the leaders of the United States and Ireland, then turned to Varadkar, offering him an opportunity to speak about Brexit. We want to make sure there is trade between Britain and Ireland.

The US president also elaborated on the relationship that he's developing with Varadkar. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wore a green jacket to greet Varadkar for lunch at the Capitol, and a green tie-wearing Vice President Pence hosted Varadkar and his partner for breakfast.

Thursday's events carried on despite awkward timing.

Parliament will vote later Thursday on whether to extend the March 29 deadline for a deal. "He has consistently emphasized Brexit as a prerequisite for a new U.S. -U.K. free trade agreement, and administration officials and members of Congress have been working diligently to prepare for such an agreement", Gardiner, director of the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom at The Heritage Foundation, tells VOA News. "The potential is unlimited!"

Ireland is at the center of the practical discussion of how Britain would separate itself from the European Union and its open movement of goods and people, because the only affected land border runs between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Teddy Bridgewater meeting with Dolphins, report says
If Brees never plays for the Saints again after the 2019 season, he will leave a salary cap hit of $21.3 million in dead money. The quarterback was in Miami visiting with the Dolphins on Wednesday, according to a report from the Boston Globe.

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.

After he met Pence at his home a year ago, Varadkar told Irish reporters that the two discussed LGBT issues and that the vice-president told the Irish leader that his partner would be welcome at his home.

"I'm not going to comment on Brexit". "And I was standing out on Turnberry, and we had a press conference, and people were screaming". Varadkar said he appreciates what the president has done for his country economically.

"I think it could've been negotiated in a different manner, frankly. I hate to see everything being ripped apart right now".

MPs have rejected May's withdrawal agreement by huge margins twice and will next vote on delaying Brexit on Thursday night. "It is just a great place", said Trump.

The Irish leader aims to use the meeting to reaffirm the historical ties between Ireland and the United States.
