TAOISEACH Leo Varadkar has said new new hate speech laws are needed as he said he believes Ireland has a racism problem.

He also compared the current outcry about racism in the wake of the killing of unarmed black man George Floyd by a police officer in the US to the #MeToo movement on sexual assault.

During an interview on 2FM Breakfast with Doireann and Eoghan, Mr Varadkar was asked if he believes Ireland has a problem with racism.
