President Trump will skip the St. Patrick’s Day lunch at the Capitol this year. The annual event is hosted by the Speaker of the House and the taoiseach of Ireland.

White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere explained the president’s decision in a statement shared by Politico.

“Since the Speaker has chosen to tear this Nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric, the President will not participate in moments where she so often chooses to drive discord and disunity, and will instead celebrate the rich history and strong ties between the United States and Ireland at the White House on March 12. The relationship between our two countries has never been stronger, and the President looks forward to welcoming the Prime Minister of Ireland for the annual Shamrock Bowl presentation.”‘ 

Immediately following President Trump’s historic and powerful State Of The Union speech in January, the divisive Speaker Pelosi childishly stood behind the president and vice president and ripped her copy in half.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Judd Deere made it clear that Trump’s decision had nothing to do with his excellent relationship with Ireland’s Prime Minister, adding, “The relationship between our two countries has never been stronger, and the President looks forward to welcoming the Prime Minister of Ireland for the annual Shamrock Bowl presentation.”
