And sure why wouldn't he 'deplane' at Shannon only to be welcomed by three Lovely Gerrals in red gunas playing him an ole tune on some fiddles? He's only injecting a rake load of much needed money into the economy (a reported 45million). I'm surprised U2 weren't on the runway in person crooning Beautiful Day.

Trump International (that's the name of his $100m private jet; he's working his way up to buying the airport) touched down at 8am this morning with all the childers, including Eric, Donald Jr. and Ivanka.

Perhaps he was siphoning some sponds merely by being in her aura - hopefully that'll make all the difference to us come budget time.

Four months ago, the American billionaire, and all round Obama enthusiast, purchased Doonbeg Golf Course (AKA Trump International Golf Links, Ireland) and this is his first trip to have a gander at his new acquisition.
