Speaking with reporters alongside Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on Thursday, Trump said that he was in Scotland at the opening of his new golf club the day before the referendum, and that he'd stated his belief that Britain would vote to leave the European Union.

Leo Varadkar also thanked President Trump for his support of a new E3 visa programme which, if passed by Congress, would benefit Irish citizens who wish to work in the US.

President Trump recently talked Brexit and trade relations with the prime minister of Ireland, while hosting the leader at the White House.

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

Varadkar, sitting alongside Trump at the White House, said he looked forward to discussing Brexit with Trump and that he would like to see a European trade deal with the United States.

Asked by a reporter if he believes there should be a second public referendum on Brexit in Britain, Trump replied he does not think that would be possible and it would be "unfair to the people who won".

The US President criticised his British counterpart for ignoring his tips on how to strike a good deal with Brussels and said he regretted seeing "everything being ripped apart" as the Brexit crisis deepens.

The prime minister said while their views on Brexit differ, the relationship between the USA and Ireland remains strong.

During a press conference with the taoiseach, the USA president confirmed he would make the trip because Ireland is "a special place".

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

After Brexit, "we can do a very big trade deal with the United Kingdom", noted Trump.

"We shouldn't have a hard border or anything to disrupt the peace process", said Varadkar. Irish leaders say a new formal border would put profitable commerce at risk and invoke the ghosts of the bloody conflicts in Northern Ireland known as the Irish Troubles.

Parliament has twice now rejected the withdrawal agreement May negotiated with the European Union, though it voted this week against leaving without a deal in place. "I predicted it was going to happen".

British lawmakers voted Thursday not to seek a do-over vote, at least for now. "And I was standing out on Turnberry, and we had a press conference, and people were screaming".

Mr Trump has said he will be visiting the Republic of Ireland at some point this year. "Everything does. One way or the other, it's going to work out".
