As Donald Trump boarded Air Force One at Shannon Airport this afternoon, the controversial President turned and waved goodbye to Ireland one last time. He had earlier told reporters how much he and his wife Melania had enjoyed their time here.
“It’s been wonderful being here and receiving such a warm Irish welcome. Melania and I have loved every minute of it but it’s time to return to America. Good luck building your border wall. Sláinte and farewell bonny Scotland.”
Mr. Trump also paid tribute to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and said the friendship between the two leaders is now stronger than ever.
“Prime Minister Varadkar is doing a great job. A fine job. Such a wonderful job really. It’s a shame his wife couldn’t make it down here. We haven’t met her yet but maybe next time Melania and her can get together and go shopping while the men talk business. I bet she’s a real hotty.”
Meanwhile in a chilling message released to the press this morning, the people behind yesterday’s anti-Trump protest in Dublin have warned that if the U.S. President ever returns to Ireland they will not hesitate to hold another protest 300 kilometres from his location.
