The Taoiseach has said that if he were to meet Donald Trump he would "certainly" repeat his previous comments that some of the businessman's comments were racist and dangerous.
The presumptive Republican candidate is due to visit his golf resort in Co Clare later this month.
Last week in the Dáil, Enda Kenny said some of what Mr Trump has said on the campaign was racist and dangerous and suggested the American people had the choice of someone else to vote for.
Speaking to reporters in Dublin this afternoon, Mr Kenny re-iterated those comments.
"I would have no difficulty in meeting (him). I've never met him and never spoken to him," he said.
When asked whether he would explain to Donald Trump in person why he believed his comments were racist and dangerous, Mr Kenny said: "Certainly. Certainly. I'd be only too happy to."
