Leo Varadkar meets Donald Trump for the annual St Patrick’s Day White House visit by an Irish leader tomorrow.

How will the encounter differ to that of his predecessor Enda Kenny?

On today’s Inside Politics podcast, Suzanne Lynch joins Hugh Linehan and Pat Leahy on the line from Washington to discuss the Taoiseach’s US visit, how the generation gap will affect his meeting with Mr Trump and what issues will be raised.

And, with just Minister for Health Simon Harris staying behind to deal with the ongoing hospital overcrowding crisis, we look ahead to the return of the Dáil next week, when the referendum Bill and corporate tax will be topping the agenda.
