Varadkar (L) presents Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump with a bowl of shamrocks. An Irish representative has been presenting the sitting U.S. president with shamrocks, at first in a box, now in a crystal bowl, each year since 1952. It's meant to be a symbol of the close relationship between the two countries as Americans celebrate Irish heritage on St. Patrick's Day. Photo by Alex Edelman/UPI
