U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May's handling of the Brexit talks for Britain's departure from the European Union and said another referendum on the issue would be unfair to the side that won. "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.

Donald Trump has said Theresa May ignored his suggestions on how to negotiate Brexit.

"I will tell you, I'm surprised at how badly it has all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation. I hate to see everything being ripped apart now".

"I regret that Brexit is happening and the United Kingdom was a really important part of the European Union".

The prime minister said while their views on Brexit differ, the relationship between the US and Ireland remains strong.

Gardiner rejects Irish concerns about the border and said the issue has been used as a "battering ram" by European Union leadership keen to make Britain a cautionary example to other member states flirting with an exit.

"I lived in a country where if I'd tried to be myself at the time, it would have ended up breaking laws", he said, The Advocate reports.

"We can do a very big trade deal with the United Kingdom". "I regret that Brexit's happening".

Despite the vote, an extension may not be secured beyond the March 29 deadline if each of the 27 other European Union member states does not agree to grant it.

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

After their private meeting, Mr Varadkar said it had been an opportunity for him to set out Ireland's position on Brexit, "particularly when it comes to the peace process".

"I predicted it was going to happen, and I was right. He has consistently emphasized Brexit as a prerequisite for a new U.S. -U.K. free trade agreement, and administration officials and members of Congress have been working diligently to prepare for such an agreement", Gardiner, director of the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom at The Heritage Foundation, tells VOA News.

Trump spoke hours before British lawmakers voted to delay Brexit for at least three months. Trump gave it a try, too, and got pretty close, at the final theatrical rite of the Irish visit - the presentation of a crystal bowl of shamrocks. "One way or the other it's going to work out".
