President Trump, Vice President Pence, and House Speaker attend the Friends of Ireland Luncheon at the U.S. Capitol.
This video is about President Donald Trump’s remarks at the Friends of Ireland Luncheon, held at the U.S. Capitol, Washington on March 13, 2019. It was a gathering to celebrate the St. Patrick’s feast and to toast the friendship between the two great nations. President Trump starts his part by welcoming Taoiseach, who he has gotten to know very well.
Donald Trump states that they discussed a lot of things that were of great interest to all of them just a little while ago in the Oval Office. He says that in particular, they talked about Brexit, which is turning a little complex than they thought it would be. He says that it will work out one way or the other.
Trump remarks that the United States and Ireland are bound together by ties of both kinship and friendship. He states that today, their relationship is as strong and resilient as the great Irish people are strong and resilient. He adds that men and women of Irish descent have strengthened their nation beyond measure since America’s founding.
President Donald Trump says that in every war since the American Revolution, Irish Americans have fought with distinction to win their independence, to preserve their nation, and nobody has done it like the Irish. He adds that they have moved their hearts with timeless works of art, literature, and music. Trump declares that Irish Americans have also answered the call to serve their nation at the highest levels of government.
Trump remarks that since the 7th century, St. Patrick’s Day has honored the legacy of Ireland’s patron saint, a man of profound humility and faith, whose selfless service is an inspiration to them all. He pronounces the note of President Roosevelt on St. Patrick’s Day 1937, “In times of plenty and in times of famine, Ireland and the descendants of Ireland, have been faithful to the heritage of St. Patrick.”
Donald Trump exclaims that today, they reaffirm their enduring gratitude for the profound contributions, extraordinary service, and unyielding spirit of the Irish people. He remarks that as the United States and Ireland grow ever closer in friendship and partnership and indeed, growing closer. He states that they are doing trade deals and things, which they have not done to this extent before. He ends his speech by giving their warmest and best regards to all of the great and wonderful people of Ireland.
After that, Taoiseach Leo Varadhar remarks that the Irish people have always had a very good dialogue with American people. He says that their relationship is more genuine, warm and stood the test of times. He states that when he was preparing for this speech, he had a chance to come across something really interesting in their archives. He adds that it is from 81 years ago, the year was 1937, the year their constitution came into effect, and a message of support was sent to them from the United States signed by almost 300 Congressmen and Governors, Democrat and Republican alike. He states that on that document are names like Harry Truman, Richard Russell, and Henry Cabot Lodge Junior. He presents a framed copy of that message as a token of appreciation and the friendship between their two nations to Madam Speaker, Nancy Pelosi. He ends by saying that it is to symbolize their historic connection, to remind them of their shared values and to inspire them of what they can achieve together in the future.
