This week Taoiseach Leo Varadkar found himself walking a political tightrope with Donald Trump.
He had to balance the competing interests of treating the office of the President of the United States with respect while at the same time not being seen as fawning towards Donald Trump.
Presenter David Murphy, standing in for Aine Lawlor, is joined by RTÉ's political correspondent Paul Cunningham and reporter Edel McAllister.
They also discuss the conclusion of the marathon count in the European Parliament elections in the Ireland South constituency.
The seven day count has led to calls for Ireland to reconsider the introduction of an electronic voting system - an experiment which was previously abandoned.
The team also talk about the introduction of Carbon Taxes and how they could be a political banana skin for Leo Varadkar and Ministers.
