Trump was speaking to reporters while golfing at his resort outside the west of Ireland village of Doonbeg, County Clare.

After hitting his first drive on the course, Trump said: "You think Biden can do that? I don’t think so."

"Biden doesn’t hit a 280 right down the middle, does he?"

"Biden can’t hit an 80 down the middle."

Trump, accompanied by his son Eric, arrived in Scotland on Monday, breaking ground on a new golf course at his Menie Estate near Aberdeen before playing a round at his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire.

He continued his visit by travelling to Ireland on Wednesday, to inspect his resort at Trump International Golf Links and Hotel just outside the town of Doonbeg in County Clare.

Trump last visited the 400-acre resort, which he bought in 2014, while president in 2019.

Asked if he was confident he could defeat Joe Biden in the 2024 election, he said: "I could win it three times."

He described his Democrat opponent, who beat him in the 2020 poll, as "an incompetent person."

When asked whether he would be looking for the Irish American vote if he ran again for president in 2024, Trump said: "I’m looking, right now I’m looking, that’s why I’m talking to you."

Trump was expected to travel to New York on Thursday, where the defamation trial brought against him by writer E. Jean Carroll – whom Trump called "a fake" – continues.
