Trump Meets Pope Francis At The Vatican

Trump Meets Pope Francis At The Vatican Trump Meets Pope Francis At The Vatican

First Lady Melania Trump chose to stick to Vatican tradition by wearing a black dress and a traditional black lace mantilla or veil when she met with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday.

In a lighter moment, Francis referred to Trump's imposing bulk by asking his wife Melania, "What do you feed him on?"

At an earlier news conference, the Pope said he wouldn't judge Trump before their meeting or seek to convert him on political issues. The pope then greeted the other members of the US delegation, which included Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and National Security Advisor General H.R. McMaster. Tough to say. There were some other gifts exchanged as well, but those were the ones that really stood out to me in terms of messaging and the current state of relations between the White House and the Vatican. Each one is custom bound and the books are in a custom display case.

Trump's gifts also included a version of the "Stone of Hope" statue from the MLK Memorial in Washington and a piece of granite from the monument.

President Trump's commitment to fighting extremism and intolerance will win approval from the Pope, as will his determination to bring peace to the Middle East.

The pope also gave the president four of his writings: The two apostolic exhortations Evangelii Gaudium and Amoris Laetitia, the environmental encyclical Laudato Si', and his message for 2017's World Day of Peace. "And I hope the pope sends the message that [man-made] climate change needs to be recognized, but I don't have a lot of faith that Trump will listen".

Past year the pope criticised Trump's campaign pledges to build a wall on the Mexican border and turn away Muslim immigrants and refugees from the US.

Ahead of their first appearance in a major European final in over two decades, Ajax have fired a warning to Man United and the rest of Europe: they are back.

"Pray with me for all those who are afflicted, especially the poor, refugees, and marginalized, so they may be welcomed and find comfort in our communities", he said. Trump generally takes the opposite view on those issues. Mr. Trump told the pope it "was a very great honour" for him to be the Vatican. He did tell reporters that they had "a fantastic meeting" and spoke of what an honor it was, but that was about it. But Francis underscored his concern by including among his gifts to Trump a copy of a document he has written denouncing human contributions to climate change.

The private audience with the pontiff was preceded by a cordial handshake for the cameras and was expected to last around 20 minutes.

"Head spinning: Never has a USA president expressed so much confidence in a conflict-ending peace agreement with so little prospect of success", tweeted Aaron David Miller who was a US negotiator on the Middle East in both Republican and Democratic administrations.

As you may remember, Trump got under Fancis's skin previous year 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.
