The two paid for locals’ drinks and thanked the village for its “incredible” support “from day one.” With a population of roughly 200, the BBC reports, some residents have praised Trump for the business and job opportunities he’s brought to the area.


Some of those at the pub reportedly wore “Make America Great Again” hats during the festivities.

When asked by a BBC reporter if the pub crawl was a good use of U.S. taxpayers’ money, Eric Trump reportedly said, “We’re just trying to have a good time.”

“Don and I want to buy everyone cocktails tonight,” he reportedly told the Belfast Telegraph.

One Twitter user roasted Eric Trump's "attempt at pulling a Guinness" at one of the pubs as "enough to trigger an international incident." 

While the Trump children paid to join the president on his state visit to the United Kingdom, it wasn’t immediately clear if this leg of the trip was privately funded.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.
