Trump to raise concerns about Irish stance on Huawei with Varadkar

In a significant intervention on the eve of Mr Trump's visit, President Michael D Higgins criticised the US president's climate change policy as "regressive and pernicious".

The speech was delivered at the 10th conference of the European Federation of Public Service Unions, held in the RDS, south Dublin yesterday .

"We must now plan for full decarbonisation of our European economies by 2050, encouraging the rest of the world to follow suit, and urging in the strongest possible terms the USA to re-consider its regressive and pernicious decision to leave the global Paris Agreement," he said, a reference to the 2015 Paris accord which set targets for countries to reduce emissions.

Mr Higgins also noted in his speech that those at risk of exclusion from society were "being abandoned to become the prey of xenophobes, homophobes and racists".
