Pope offers olive branch to President Trump

Irune Rengel | 25 May, 2017, 08:01

Donald Trump then proceeded to visit the Sistine Chapel with his wife.

Women visiting the Vatican to meet with the pope traditionally wear a veil as a sign of respect.

The pope, upon completing their meeting, gave the president a medal featuring an olive branch.

"It is my desire that you become an olive tree to construct peace", the Pope said, speaking in Spanish through an interpreter.

The environmental campaign group's Executive Director Jennifer Morgan said: "We delivered to Trump a message that his first priority must be to people and planet, not the profits of polluters".

The meeting with the Pope Francis concludes Trump's tour of the ancestral homes of the world's three largest monotheistic religions.

Trump says he never 'mentioned the word' Israel in meeting with Russians
Trump's visit, and especially the speech he gave, should put an end to any hope of a rapprochement between the U.S. and Iran. Rouhani also defended Iran's ballistic missile program, which has been highly opposed by the Trump administration.

"Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis".

Trump could be heard saying it was "an honour" to be there during the meeting.

As you may remember, Trump got under Fancis's skin a year ago when he suggested the Mexicans were using him, during a visit he was making to the country, to advance their opposition to a wall along the Mexican border. The first lady Melania Trump's outfit was another focal point on the social platform. According to CNN, neither leader will disclose what the meeting was about, but the conversation seemed to have a big impact on Trump. "It's a very great honor".

The meeting, which concluded Trump's tour of the world's largest monotheistic religions, comes after the president and pope collided head-on early a year ago, when Francis was sharply critical of Trump's campaign pledge to build an impenetrable wall on the Mexican border and his declaration that the United States should turn away Muslim immigrants and refugees.

The two exchanged gifts after the meeting.

At least a half-dozen protests against Trump were scheduled to take place in Rome on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Later today, Mr. Trump, who had been on a Middle East tour, is to attend the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels before attending the G7 summit in Sicily. "I think you will enjoy them", President Trump told Francis, as he presented him with a first-edition set of King's writings, recalling the Pope's address to Congress in 2015 in which he quoted King. The two leaders smiled as they posed for photos, and Trump introduced first lady Melania Trump, along with his daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner.

He also gave the Pope a piece of granite from the Martin Luther King Jr.

"We had a fantastic meeting", the President said.

Trump's trip to the Vatican marks the beginning of the European stage of his first presidential visit overseas, an worldwide tour with prior stops in Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Trump and Francis certainly had differences to iron out during their meeting.

Mr Trump said it was "disgraceful" of the Argentine-born pope, who represents just over half of the world's two billion Christians, to question his faith.
