Speaking with reporters alongside Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on Thursday, Trump said that he was in Scotland at the opening of his new golf club the day before the referendum, and that he'd stated his belief that Britain would vote to leave the European Union.
Mr Trump made the comments during a press conference with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in the Oval Office yesterday.
Speaking ahead of a private meeting with Mr Varadkar, the USA president said Brexit was "tearing countries apart".
He lamented that the country is "being ripped apart" because of a long-standing political crisis that gripped the government and parliament.
On the prospect of another referendum, he said: 'I don't think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people that won.
Mr Murphy and law society president Patrick Dorgan travelled to Washington DC where the Government's "Ireland: An global legal centre" initiative was launched at the Irish Embassy as part of the St Patrick's Day celebrations.
"I think they are probably going to have to do something because right now they are in the midst of a very short period of time - the end of the month - and they are not going to be able to do that".
"I will be coming at some point this year", he said.
Trump slams handling of Brexit by UK's May
Following meetings with businesses leaders, community leaders and members of the Irish diaspora, Mr Varadkar addressed an audience on Wednesday as part of his engagements in the U.S. capital.
Trump, during the traditional St. Patrick's Day seasonal meeting here between the leaders of the United States and Ireland, then turned to Varadkar, offering him an opportunity to speak about Brexit.
Pence also signaled support for federal funds to be allocated for gay "conversion therapy" on his 2000 US House campaign website, where it said "resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior". "I regret that Brexit's happening and the United Kingdom was a really important part of the European Union".
Speaking about the contributions of Irish-Americans, Pelosi quoted Republican President Ronald Reagan as saying USA leadership would be lost "if we ever close the door to new Americans". "I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner", he said.
Pence tweeted that he was honored to host Varadkar at his home.
Turning to Mr Varadkar, he said: "Leo, I'm sure you agree on that".
DONALD TRUMP will make his long-awaited visit to the Republic of Ireland later this year.
