To: An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar

"'Shame'rock for Trump - Not in our name"

We call on An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar to not accept (or to rescind) his invitation to the White House to visit Donal Trump for St. Patrick's Day (2018), on account of the president's prejudiced, racist and bigoted valued and actions.

Why is this important?

An Taoiseach is our representative abroad. When he accepts prejudice, racism and bigotry, it shames the people of our country. We feel that such an alliance is not good for our country's reputation and undermines our relationship with other countries. Trump is a despicable human being. A point must be reached where falling at the foot of a powerful man, at the expense of our values and morals and international reputation is not acceptable! "'Shame'rock for Trump: Not in our Name"
