Irish songwriter Brendan Graham has spoken about his feelings towards American President Donald Trump retweeting a performance of Graham's biggest hit, You Raise Me Up.

The American president recently retweeted a performance of You Raise Me Up by a popular German singer, with the comment: ‘Great!’

It’s an endorsement that Graham says he doesn’t appreciate. “I was hoping that it wouldn’t be the kiss of death for the song,” Brendan told the Sunday World.
