‘I bet she treats you well’: Trump calls over Irish reporter, compliments her ‘nice smile.’
While Trump’s president spoke on the telephone with the new Irish prime minister, Leo Varadkar Tuesday, congratulating him on his recent victory, made eye contact with a reporter in the courtroom.
“We have a lot of their Irish press looking at us now,” the president said at the Trump Varadkar, informing him that the whole conversation took place in a room full of reporters with cameras running.
Irish journalist Caitríona Perry, head of the United States office, told News Routine, urging her to come to his office.
“We have all this beautiful Irish press,” said Prime Minister Trump, and asked Perry, “Where are you?”
Perry approached Trump and introduced himself.
“She has a beautiful smile on her face while I bet she treats you right,” Trump said.
Perry, with men and women in the room, made fun of the game. But later, Perry described it as a “strange time”.
Speaking on RTÉ after the exchange, Perry said he had not even planned to be allowed inside the White House to cover the phone call of President Varadkar, who took office earlier this month as the Irish Prime Minister or Prime Minister. He is the son of an Indian immigrant and the country’s first openly gay prime minister.

“At one point we were out of the window and the next time we met with the president of the United States,” Mr. Perry told RTE.
“When we walked in, it was already on the phone but I managed to get their attention and called me,” he said.
The title of RTÉ reads: “Trump call Caitríona of the presidential moment RTÉ!”.
During the phone call, Trump also told Perry, “He thanks the newspapers, Caitriona.”
Varadkar was referring to questions from The Washington Post and The New York Times the day after his victory in the vote for his party’s leadership, Perry said in the Irish Independent. Fine Gael is the political party that leads the Irish government.
“I have returned to Dublin through Leo Varadkar’s colleagues as the memories he and his family could love,” Perry said. “I often do when there is a reference to someone I know from my house who is presented in the papers here,” he said.
The unexpected Trump decision naming a reporter has received mixed reactions on social networks, some have described as “embarrassing” and others say it was simply an attempt by Trump to share “kind words.”
During the election, Trump has faced adversity by saying that Megyn Kelly and an anchor of Fox News Channel, “was the blood of the eyes, the blood that comes out of her everywhere,” when he was asked during a debate presidential.
“I think she was off base,” Trump said. (His campaign later said in a statement that Trump said “nothing” instead of “everywhere,” and that reference was to the nose.)
And few journalists in the campaign have been criticized by the future president as much as Katy Tur NBC News, while Paul Farhi, The Post said:
His public moves on Twitter and obsessive meetings turned out to be like a thunderbolt. Ridiculed as “little Katy,” he was recommended to be shot, called “incompetent,” “dishonest,” a “third journalist fee.
” The most common complaint: they do not indicate the size of their campaign crowds (“Katy – they do not report, Katy,” she exclaimed at one point, “It’s something that goes more.
