In a (slightly) commendable move, Trump called Ireland's newly elected and first openly gay Taoiseach (their fantastic word for Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar to congratulate him on his well-deserved victory.
Reporters were brought to the Oval Office for the beginning of Tuesday's conversation.
The call comes as the POTUS has been given the green light to introduce his travel ban.
According to a note of the conversation, they agreed to continue strong co-operation between Ireland and the U.S. on economic issues as well as shared cultural and family ties.
The ban has been reinstated until autumn.
The call, according to RTE, lasted ten to fifteen minutes and was described by a spokesperson for Mr. Varadkar as "a wide-ranging call" which was "fruitful". I know so many of them, too.
Both leaders discussed the undocumented Irish, migration, Brexit and the movement of goods and citizens across the border, climate change, free trade, and Irish inward investment in the US.
Attorneys General from Maryland, DC to sue Trump over foreign payments
Trump retains ownership of his company and is to receive regular updates, the newspaper said . Last week, a group of Democratic members of Congress said they also planned to file suit soon.
The President asked for an update on the Northern Ireland peace process and the situation regarding border controls between the North and the Republic.
The Irish Independent reported that no press was in attendance at the Irish end of the call.
They ended on a positive note, with Trump inviting the young Taoiseach to the White House for St. Patrick's Day next year.
The US president has spoken to the Taoiseach on the phone, for the first time since Mr Varadkar took office.
"I will not, of course, rescind that invitation". However, he said no progress had been made in organising the visit and there was no timeline in place.
They discussed the supply and confidence agreement between the Conservatives and the DUP as well.
Mr. Varadkar will have his chance next March and before then if President Trump visits Ireland.
