During a phone call with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, President Donald Trump awkwardly complimented the appearance of Irish reporter, Caitriona Perry.

Perry uploaded the video to her own Twitter, labeling the moment as “bizarre” on Twitter and shared the video.

“Well, we have a lot of your Irish press watching us. They’re just now leaving the room. And where are you from? Go ahead, come here. Where are you from? We have all of this beautiful Irish press. Where are you from?” The President said.

“I’m from RTE. Caitriona Perry.”

“Caitriona Perry. She has a nice smile on her face. So, I bet she treats you well,” President Trump said.

According to her personal website, Perry is an award-winning Irish journalist who has worked broadcast news correspondent since 2000.

Perry is currently Washington Correspondent for Ireland’s national public service broadcaster, RTE, where she works on television, radio and digital platforms. She has significant editorial experience and has previously worked as a news anchor, presenter, documentary maker, producer, and program editor.
