DJT never misses an opportunity to enrich HIMSELF @ the expense of another government. I hope the Irish tell him where to stick HIS visit. HE's using HIS lackey Mick Mulvaney as HIS accomplice go between in this personal enrichment attempt.

Standoff over venue threatens to derail Trump visit to Ireland
Updated 9:11 AM ET, Sat May 18, 2019

(CNN) — A standoff is heating up between advance teams from the Irish and US governments over a potential presidential visit next month to the Emerald Isle.

President Donald Trump is expected to travel to Ireland for two nights during his visit to Great Britain and France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

An Irish government source with knowledge of ongoing discussions told CNN that the White House is insisting the Irish prime minister, or taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, come to the President's golf course in Doonbeg to host a meeting between the two leaders.

According to the source, "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."

"It is a bit unseemly to demand that the taoiseach host President Trump at his hotel," the source said.

The source, who asked that his name not be used so he could speak freely, says Trump's chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, has been intimately involved in the discussions and has been insistent that Varadkar come to Doonbeg.

CNN has reached out to the White House for comment.

Leo Varadkar, Irish Prime Minister, told reporters recently,

"The President of America is always welcome here. We respect the role no matter what we think of the person themselves."

Mr. 59,

The Prime Minister doesn't know what he is missing out on:
