Hi there,

This week Democracy Now! is bringing you live, on-the-ground coverage of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where you’ll hear the voices and analysis you won’t get anywhere else. In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $30 today. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.

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.
