Leo Varadkar calls Trump claim about Ireland tax cut 'fake news.'

The Irish prime minister has accused Donald Trump of peddling “fake news” after the US president wrongly claimed that Ireland plans to further reduce its much-criticised 12.5% corporation tax.

Trump angered Irish officials with his comments at a White House briefing on Monday, in which he alleged that Ireland was going to cut the tax on corporations such as Apple, Google and Facebook to 8%.

“I hear that Ireland is going to be reducing their corporate rates down to 8% from 12,” Trump told reporters.

But the taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, denied the allegation during prime minister’s questions in the Dail (Irish parliament) on Wednesday.
