"The people of the USA have spoken. Donald Trump had been elected as the 45th President of the USA. I congratulate him. The onus is on the President Elect to represent all the people of the USA and to play a positive and progressive role in world affairs.
“The Irish peace process has consistently had the support of both Republican and Democratic administrations and on Capitol Hill over the last two decades.
