Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has spoken to President Trump for the first time since taking office.
The call will be Mr Varadkar's first official dialogue with the US President since his appointment to office on June 14th.
The call comes as the POTUS has been given the green light to introduce his travel ban.
According to a note of the conversation, they agreed to continue strong co-operation between Ireland and the U.S. on economic issues as well as shared cultural and family ties.
The ban has been reinstated until autumn. As she explains who she works for, Trump says "she has a nice smile on her face so I'm sure she treats you well".
Mr Varadkar also held a telephone call with Prime Minister Theresa May during Tuesday in which they discussed the ongoing efforts to restore the power sharing executive in Northern Ireland ahead of Thursday's talk deadline.

President Trump speaking with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar today.
Trump congratulated Varadkar on his "great victory" during a portion of the telephone conversation that the White House opened up to reporters. "I know so many of them, I feel I know all of them".
"I just want to congratulate you".
However, when asked in the Dáil last week if he would rescind Mr. Kenny's invitation, Mr. Varadkar said he would not.
Mr. Varadkar said that he will raise issues such as climate change, LGBT rights, and immigrant rights on a future US visit.
Mr. Varadkar will have his chance next March and before then if President Trump visits Ireland.
