He was accompanied by First Lady Melania, who looked stunning in an emerald green $1595 Brandon Maxwell dress.

Speaking at the presentation, the Taoiseach pledged to work with the Trump administration to resolve the issue of the undocumented Irish in America.

The incident is an embarrassment for the Irish government in what is usually a "good news" trip to Washington for the annual Irish celebrations. And these are truly wonderful people.

Heavy snow has started to fall in the USA capital, but Mr Varadkar will be hoping the reception is not as frosty inside the Naval Observatory.

President Trump talked about the close ties between the US and Ireland but also took a dig at Irish tax laws.

Earlier in the day, the two men discussed the undocumented issue in the Oval Office. "Do we take the Taoiseach's word for it, that he intervened personally?" said Mr Ryan.

Yesterday Leo Varadkar revealed that he made a phone call to Clare county council about the application on Mr Trump's behalf when he was tourism minister.

US bars govt workers from Mexican resort of Playa del Carmen
USA citizens are warned not to travel to five Mexican states including Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas. The flag of Mexico changes in front of a large USA flag in front of the New York Stock Exchange September 4, 2015.

In front of about 200 hundred Irish-American guests, the President joked about Vice President and wife Karen's Irish descent.

He said: "I will". The President reportedly took particular interest in the situation with the Irish border.

"If any politician is being honest, I think that's something that happens very regularly in terms of people seeking an update on an application, particularly one that could have an impact on something like tourism which was the view at the time", he said.

A group of leaders of various pro-life groups, ranging across student and religious organisations delivered the letter to Varadkar on his Washington visit.

"Mr Varadkar needs to give a full account of this issue without delay".

In a break with protocol, Pence's officials have excluded the media from the event.

Mr Varadkar told media after his meeting with Mr Trump at the White House that he did not know why the encounter was going to be held behind closed doors and he would have preferred to see media there to document their comments.

In a statement, Michael Clohessy, director of Clare Coastal Wind Power ltd, said: "We are disappointed at the admission by an Taoiseach that he interfered in the planning process regarding the planning application for our proposed wind farm in west Clare".
