The President allowed members of the media to witness the first part of the call and photographs from the Oval Office show the US President seated behind the Resolute Desk while speaking to Mr Varadkar.

President Trump will take the call in the Oval Office.

Earlier, Mr Trump will have a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, receive his daily intelligence briefing and meet with his National Security adviser HR McMaster.

The Taoiseach said numerous illegal Irish in the USA had originally travelled on legitimate documentation but for a variety of reasons now needed to regularise their situation.

While there was no specific mention or congratulatory remark on Varadkar being the first gay Prime Minister, the call does represent a positive step forward in Trump's attitudes toward the LGBTQ community and his position with global nations at large.

Trump congratulated Varadkar on his "great victory" and said he feels like he knows all the Irish people in America.

Varadkar, 38, is Ireland's youngest prime minister.

"I just want to congratulate you". As she explains who she works for, Trump says "she has a nice smile on her face so I'm sure she treats you well".

However, when asked in the Dáil last week if he would rescind Mr. Kenny's invitation, Mr. Varadkar said he would not.

Mr. Varadkar will have his chance next March and before then if President Trump visits Ireland.
