Trump slams handling of Brexit by UK's May

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he was "surprised at how badly" Brexit has gone and that UK Prime Minister Theresa May ignored his advice on how to better handle negotiations.

The US President said Brexit is "tearing countries apart" but it would be unfair to hold a second referendum.

"I will tell you, I'm surprised at how badly it's all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation", Trump said, sounding like he wasn't that surprised at all.

"I hate to see everything being ripped apart right now", Trump said, according to Politico.

"I don't think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people that won", he added.

"I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly", Trump said.

Mr Trump, who was hosting Mr Varadkar for the annual St Patrick's Day visit to Washington, had earlier taken to Twitter to to express his hopes for a future working relationship with Britain.

"I am happy to report to the Taoiseach that I have spoken to mom, first generation Irish-American and mother-of-nine, and she has confirmed that she will travel with us to Ireland and we are making plans to return to my grandfather's homestead as we speak", Mr Pence said.

Trump has previously been critical of May's Brexit deal, warning that it could "kill" a bilateral trade agreement between the U.S. and the UK.

Leo Varadkar also thanked President Trump for his support of a new E3 visa programme which, if passed by Congress, would benefit Irish citizens who wish to work in the US.

Mr Pence, who describes himself as a Christian and a conservative, extended an invitation to the couple during a meeting with Mr Varadkar a year ago. "I predicted it was going to happen", he said.

"We shouldn't have a hard border or anything to obstruct the peace process". But that has been parked as an European Union proposal and we are now looking for a global solution from the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and I think that is the right approach.

Speaking at the Naval Observatory, Varadkar touched briefly on his sexual orientation.

Mr Pence made the comments at a breakfast meeting with Mr Varadkar and his partner at the vice-president's residence in the capital. "It is just a great place", he said. Trump gave it a try, too, and got pretty close, at the final theatrical rite of the Irish visit - the presentation of a crystal bowl of shamrocks.
