Donald Trump touched down in Shannon Airport this evening, marking his first visit to Ireland since become the President of the United States.

The so-called "backstop" provision outlining customs arrangements for the border in the event of Brexit has proved to be the main sticking points and led to Theresa May's failure to get the deal past MPs - causing her subsequent resignation.

Before the meeting, Mr Trump said he expected he would ask him about Brexit and it would all work out "very well".

Mr Trump will meet Taoiseach Leo Varadkar followed by a press conference with members of the media.

In the video, obtained by The Sun, Dalla Mura then approaches people in the crowd and says: "I think Donald Trump's balloon is not very well, I think it's going down rapidly for a reason".

"I don't know exactly what your timing is, but stick around".

He said ahead of the meeting: "It's no secret that we don't agree with President Trump's views on Brexit".

Speaking with Leo Varadkar in Shannon, southwest Ireland, Mr Trump - who flew there after a state visit to Britain - raised the subject of the UK's European Union exit.

'The way it works now is good, you want to try and to keep it that way. "The big crowds, which the Corrupt Media hates to show, were those that gathered in support of the U.S. and me". And I didn't see the protestors until just a little while ago, and it was a very, very small group of people, put in for political reasons.

"I think I'm making up for it rapidly" Trump told Morgan, because of increased defense spending under his presidency.

Leo Varadkar previously met the US president during St Patrick's Day celebrations in Washington D.C.in March.

The most extraordinary moment of the three-day trip came as Air Force One landed at Stansted airport, with the President choosing to launch an extraordinary attack on London Mayor Sadiq Khan, calling him "a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me".

The group had dinner tonight at Winfield House, the residence of the US ambassador in England, where Trump is staying during his visit.

The policies could also impact now serving personnel.

Donald Trump has compared the post-Brexit Irish border with his own planned wall for the U.S. border with Mexico.

"A woman.punctured the mini Trump baby replica with a sharp object", said a spokesman for the "babysitters" group tasked with looking after baby Trump.
