The Taoiseach Enda Kenny has absolutely no intention to leave office after his meeting with President Donald Trump was widely regarded as an overwhelming success – possibly the best meeting between and Irish Prime Minister and an American President in recent history.
Kenny was asked yesterday when he plans on leaving role as Taoiseach and with a move that’s pulled the carpet from underneath Leo Varadkar and Simon Coveney’s feet, he said he’d leave when Brexit is sorted and the North is under control – effectively that could be years from now.
Kenny has always said that he wouldn’t lead Fine Gael into the next General Election but that also has been put on the back-burner as President Trump genuinely enjoyed the Irish banter and appeared to sincerely get on with Kenny and that has now given the Taoiseach a new spring in his step which means he’ll be staying for some time yet.
