The President-elect delved into foreign policy, saying he opposed a hard/guarded border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.
“We do not want a guarded border. We want to make sure – we’ve worked too long to get Ireland worked out, and I talked with the British prime minister, I talked with the Taoiseach, I talked with others, I talked to the French.
