"I don't think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people that won", he added.

"I will tell you, I'm surprised at how badly it's all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation", Trump said, sounding like he wasn't that surprised at all.

President Truman was out of town at the time, but later sent Ambassador Hearne a message, in which Truman said that he hoped "relations between the two countries will continue to be on a good and effective level for generations". "But I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner".

"People often ask me what I felt on Inauguration Day when I raised my right hand", Pence said. Lawmakers have committed the country to staying in the bloc unless a divorce deal is ratified.

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

But he now he says: "The potential is unlimited!"

"You've got a very interesting view on it, and I appreciate you letting me know what's going on over there".

Turning to Mr Varadkar, he said: "Leo, I'm sure you agree on that".

"If they don't talk to us we're going to do something that's very severe economically", Trump said.

His comments came on a crucial week for Brexit, as MPs first voted against Mrs May's amended deal, then rejected leaving the bloc with no deal before opting to request an extension to Article 50 on Thursday.

The visit and the news conference were the day after the June 23 Brexit vote, not the day before. "It is just a great place", he said.

After he met Pence at his home past year, Varadkar told Irish reporters that the two discussed LGBT issues and that the vice-president told the Irish leader that his partner would be welcome at his home. "There is very deep-seated animosity within the Irish government to Brexit".

However, some differences between the two nations' administrations were highlighted on Thursday morning (March 14), when Varadkar arrived at the Naval Observatory for a breakfast meeting with Vice-President Mike Pence - and took along his partner, Matt Barrett. Pence got the pronunciation right - "TEE-shuck" - and said he, too, plans a trip to Ireland shortly.

The Irish leader aims to use the meeting to reaffirm the historical ties between Ireland and the United States.

"If they don't talk to us we are going to do something pretty severe economically".

"But it will all work out, everything does, one way or the other".
