Tanaiste Survives No Confidence Vote

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar last night survived a confidence motion in the Dáil

TDs voted confidence in the Tánaiste and the government by 92 votes to 65.
Nine Independents voted alongside the government to defeat the campaign from Sinn Féin to get Leo Varadkar to resign.

Fine Gael Minister and Wicklow T.D. Simon Harris was one of those very critical of Sinn Féin for bringing the motion of no-confidence, accusing them of trying to " introduce the Politics of Trumpism" into the Dáil.
