Opposition leaders are demanding clarity from the Taoiseach over his decision to contact planners in Clare County Council following a phone call from Donald Trump.

In February previous year -when Mr Varadkar was social protection minister and an invitation was first mooted - he insisted he wouldn't invite Mr Trump if it was his decision, and said he wasn't sure what objective an invite would serve.

Leo Varadkar met with Donald Trump today and a lot of people aren't happy with Varadkar's story of his first interaction with the USA president.

She said: "It is clear there remains much work to be done in securing a stable and prosperous future for all the people of Northern Ireland, and over the next few days, I want to reassure colleagues in the USA that the UK Government remains committed to the Belfast Agreement".

With St Patrick's Day approaching on Saturday, Varadkar visited various USA lawmakers and sites.

"I don't play golf, so I won't be playing a round of golf with him if he comes to Doonbeg, but perhaps it will be an opportunity for him to visit some of the Irish companies that invest in the United States, and see the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland".

"President Trump and I met earlier and I believe by talking and listening we both learned things that will help our two countries move forward", he said.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar makes a speech during the Speaker's Lunch at Capitol Hill.

The Taoiseach had made the announcement ahead of his meeting with Trump in Washington DC on Thursday 15 March, in which he told press that his predecessor Enda Kenny's invitation still stands.

Mr Varadkar is making his first visit to a White House occupied by Mr Trump.

Many of those without legal permission overstayed a visitors' visa and now work and have families in the country.

"It was something that was very much on his mind", he said. The council must outline who he talked to & what was said.

Mr Varadkar has said that trade and the potential for a trade war between the European Union and the USA will be top of the agenda.

The Taoiseach was asked by reporters if he will raise the issue of Mr Pence's stance on gay rights.
