President Donald Trump interrupted a diplomatic phone call with newly elected Irish Prime Minister Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to tell a reporter she had a “nice smile.”
During a phone call with Varadkar on Tuesday, Trump noted that he was joined in the Oval Office by “all of this beautiful Irish press,” and asked RTE White House reporter Caitriona Perry to come over closer to his desk.
“She has a nice smile on her face, so I bet she treats you well,” Trump said to the prime minister.
The moment quickly went viral after Perry shared it on Twitter.
