Varadkar took Pence up on his offer Thursday, bringing Barrett along for a morning reception at the vice president's residence on the grounds of the US Naval Observatory.

The conservative Christian politician has been criticised for his views on LGBT issues and his opposition to same-sex marriage.

The taoiseach was speaking at the US Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC as part of his four-day St Patrick's tour of America.

Speaking about his earlier private meeting with Mr Varadkar, the USA president said: "We discussed a lot of things, in particular we talked about Brexit, something that turned out to be a little more complex than they thought it be".

Trump also lamented he was "surprised at how badly it has all gone from the standpoint of negotiating". I believe in free trade. It is found in every country where freedom and liberty are cherished.

Pence also signaled support for federal funds to be allocated for gay "conversion therapy" on his 2000 US House campaign website, where it said "resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior". Pence attempted the Irish leader's formal title, calling him "Taoiseach Varadkar".

"I mean she's got to do what she's got to do", he said at the White House as he welcomed Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar for an early St. Patrick's Day celebration.

But he insisted: "We are going to have a very strong border very soon", and he praised law enforcement officers catching "thousands of illegal aliens a month".

"I'd like to see that whole situation with Brexit work out", Trump added. "Is he insane or is that just the way he acts?"

The Taoiseach referred to Mr Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan and said that while the United States had military might and a booming economy, they shouldn't lose sight of what makes America great already - its people and its values.

On his last trip to the United States past year, Varadkar had a closed-door meeting with Pence.

Until the 1998 Good Friday agreement, violence in the previous three decades in Northern Ireland killed more than 3,500 people.

U.S. vice-president Mike Pence, DUP leader Arlene Foster and Sinn Fein president Mary Lou McDonald was also in attendance.
