Trump's comments come as the UK's parliament is set to vote later on whether to ask the European Union to request a delay to the UK's exit, due in just over two weeks on 29 March.

Mr Trump also used Mr Varadkar's visit to the White House yesterday to warn Ireland and the EU the U.S. is "going to tariff a lot of their products coming in because the European Union treats us very, very unfairly".

I gave the Prime Minister my ideas on how to negotiate it and I think you would have been successful.

Trump has previously been critical of May's Brexit deal, warning that it could "kill" a bilateral trade agreement between the United States and the UK.

"We have a different opinion", he said, referring to the president. "The potential is unlimited!" Britain's exit from the European Union had been scheduled for March 29.

The most concerning element for Ireland, Varadkar said, is that Brexit should not cause any problems in Northern Ireland, which voted to stay in the EU.

Mr Trump told reporters he did not believe a second Brexit referendum could be justified, saying it would be "unfair" to the 52 percent of Britons who voted Leave. "I predicted it was going to happen". "That was the day before, if you remember", Trump said describing his visit during the presidential campaign to his golf resort in Scotland.

"She's got to do what she's got to do but I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly. 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.

MPs have rejected May's withdrawal agreement by huge margins twice and will next vote on delaying Brexit on Thursday night.

The issue of the United Kingdom border with the Republic of Ireland is one of Brexit's most complex points, noted Trump.

"I particularly want to thank you for your help with the plant in the west of Ireland where hundreds of jobs were threatened as a result of the Russian sanctions", he stated.

During a speech at the Vice President's US Naval Observatory residence, the Irish leader said his fascination with American politics at a young age "helped to inspire me to believe in the power of politics to do good because ultimately that is what politics is all about".
