Smiling Trump Meets with Glum-Looking Pope Francis at Vatican

HeadlineMay 24, 2017

All this comes as Trump continues his first foreign trip as president, meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican this morning. Photos show an apparently cheery President Trump standing beside the glum-looking pope. The White House pool report reads, “The Pope did not say anything. He did not smile. … We were quickly ushered out at 8:33 a.m.” Pope Francis has been highly critical of Trump, once saying, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.” On Thursday, Trump is slated to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron and European Union officials in Brussels.
