Former taoiseach Enda Kenny invited Mr Trump to Ireland in the White House when he made the annual St Patrick's Day trip this time past year.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said the invitation for President Donald Trump to visit Ireland still stands and it might be an opportunity for him to visit the border with Northern Ireland.

Alyssa Farrah, a Pence spokesperson, affirmed the breakfast itself was closed to the press and said the two leaders already appeared together at events in the White House that were open to the media.

Mr Varadkar was tourism minister at the time and Mr Trump, a private citizen, had raised concerns the wind farm near Ireland's Atlantic coast could affect the beauty of the landscape near his course.

Mr Varadkar said he will raise the matter of corporation tax when he has a bilateral meeting with Mr Trump tomorrow at the White House.

"I do think it probably would have been refused anyway but I am very happy to take credit for it if the President is going to offer it to me".
