Mr Varadkar also held a telephone call with Prime Minister Theresa May during Tuesday in which they discussed the ongoing efforts to restore the power sharing executive in Northern Ireland ahead of Thursday's talk deadline.

Mr. Varadkar's predecessor, Enda Kenny, invited President Trump to visit Ireland during his White House St. Patrick's Day visit in March of this year.

The White House's daily press schedule confirms Mr Trump will speak to "Prime Minister Leo Varadkar of Ireland" at 11.15am US Eastern Standard Time, which is 4.15pm Irish time.

The press were invited into the oval office for Donald Trump's telephone conversation with new Taoiseach Leo Varadkar this evening.

According toCNN, the US Supreme Court is 'allowing the ban to go into effect for foreign nationals who lack any "bona fide relationship with any person or entity in the United States"'. "I know so many of them, I feel I know all of them".


Mr Varadkar's spokesman said the Taoiseach had held a number of phone calls with global leaders since his appointment including Mr Macron, British Prime Minister Theresa May, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"I just want to congratulate you".

Varadkar, 38, is Ireland's youngest prime minister.

"I will not, of course, rescind that invitation".

Mr. Varadkar said that he will raise issues such as climate change, LGBT rights, and immigrant rights on a future US visit.
