Leo Varadkar has said that America has emulated Ireland's tax policy and he will not be criticising Donald Trump about the U.S. administration's tax changes when he meets him.

And in the evening, Varadkar was set to participate in the annual shamrock ceremony at the White House, presenting Trump with a bowl of Ireland's famous greens.

Two days ahead of Ireland's national holiday both President Trump and his staff will host two events to mark St Patrick's Day.

President Trump was asked by reporters if he would like to visit Ireland soon.

Sinn Féin president Mary Lou McDonald, who is also in Washington DC, said any renewed process had to have a real prospect of success. I love it, I love it.

It is understood the decision to bar the media was taken by the vice president's Office.

On the border, Mr Trump said: "That is an interesting border also, we have two interesting borders", an apparent allusion to the US/Mexico frontier where he wants to build a wall.

"It was something that was very much on his mind", he said.

The Irish delegation had a round-table discussion with major firms investing in Ireland including Allergen, Intel and Boeing, and with some financial institutions who are moving to Ireland because of Brexit, including Bank of America and Merrill Lynch.

"I am not going to comment on a prospective itinerary for any visitor to the country, when I am Taoiseach I might be able to answer that more accurately", she said.

"The president has enormous concerns that the United States isn't being treated fairly when it comes to trade by China and by Europe", the Taoiseach said.

Mr Varadkar was speaking after meeting with the US Chamber of Commerce, the organisation that represents American employers and industry.

The Taoiseach has said in the past he would raise LGBT rights if he had the chance in the White House - and while he's said he'll mention it to Mike Pence this week he hasn't confirmed if it will be part of the conversation with Donald Trump.
