Trump Says Theresa May Didn't Follow His Advice to Escape Brexit MAYHEM

In an unhelpful intervention for the United Kingdom prime minister, the president said Theresa May had ignored his advice on how to better handle negotiations. "I don't think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people who won, who say, 'What do you mean you're going to take another vote?' That will be tough".

Speaking to reporters ahead of his meeting on Thursday with Leo Varadkar, the Irish prime minister, Trump said he wants Brexit talks to work out but was surprised at how badly the negotiations have gone, adding that the British prime minister did not listen to his suggestions on how to negotiate.

Mr Trump, who was joined on stage by USA vice president Mike Pence, said that millions of Americans across the country celebrate the "inspiring" Irish people on St Patrick's Day.

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

"I hate to see it being, everything being ripped apart right now".

Britain is set to exit the European Union on March 29, but lawmakers voted Thursday to allow the government to seek a delay to the Brexit date. "The potential is unlimited!"

Pelosi used the luncheon to make a pointed plug for immigration after just she had just described the annual event as "a tradition where we dispense with our differences, whether they're political or whether they're competitive in any other way".

The United States used systems that "de facto were in violation of the basic provisions of the INF Treaty", Peskov stressed. Russian Federation also accused USA of breaking the 1987 pact, allegations that U.S. has denied.


Mrs Foster has said she hopes to invite Mr Trump to attend the Open Championship at Portrush this July.

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

The visit and the news conference were the day after the June 23 Brexit vote, not the day before. Pence attempted the Irish leader's formal title, calling him "Taoiseach Varadkar".

In a tweet, Varadkar said it was "great to be back here for a really warm reception". Pence got the pronunciation right - "TEE-shuck" - and said he, too, plans a trip to Ireland shortly.

During the annual event, the Taoiseach presented the U.S. president with a bowl of shamrock to mark his St Patrick's visit to Washington DC.

"If they don't talk to us we are going to do something pretty severe economically. Everything does. One way or the other, it's going to work out".
