A story popped up on The Hill this morning that touches on a topic that we have discussed in the past (emolument) but which bears a little further discussion.
The White House is reportedly pushing for Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to come to President Trump’s golf course in Doonbeg, Ireland, for a meeting when the president visits the area next month.
"The Irish government feel that protocol dictates that any event they host for President Trump should be at a venue of their choosing and certainly not at an hotel owned by Trump,” the source told CNN.
Irish officials have reportedly offered a compromise — Varadkar will host Trump for dinner at nearby Dromoland Castle and then come to Trump’s Doonbeg hotel for breakfast.
The White House has reportedly refused that offer and threatened to have the president skip the visit and travel to one of his golf properties in Scotland instead.
For a man who is 72 years old, he sure is acting like a 2 year old spoiled brat.
For obvious reasons, Trump is incredibly unpopular in Ireland.
Trump is also traveling to Great Britain and France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. If he winds up giving a speech at Normandy Beach, it will be another fiasco, since he is incapable to uttering complete sentences.
