President Donald Trump’s campaign announced the launch of “Irish Americans for Trump” on Tuesday morning.
The campaign announced the launch of the coalition on St. Patrick’s Day, saying it will “commemorate Irish American contributions to our economy, military, and history.”
The campaign also emphasized that Trump recently appointed former acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney as the special envoy for Northern Ireland, a move that demonstrates the “importance of Irish peace and security to the Trump administration.” (RELATED: St Patrick’s Day Parades Canceled Following Coronavirus Spread)
