US President, Donald Trump Meets Pope Francis at the Vatican

President of the United States, Donald Trump on Wednesday met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. The two world leaders have clashed repeatedly on several issues.


 

The private audience with the pontiff came on the third leg of Trump’s first overseas trip as president, which has already taken him to Saudi Arabia and to Israel and the Palestinian territories.

The two men had never met before Wednesday morning but they have significant history having clashed publicly over subjects ranging from migration to unbridled capitalism and climate change.

They also disagree on issues like the death penalty and the arms trade but share a fervent opposition to abortion.

Trump was accompanied for the audience by his wife Melania and daughter Ivanka, both dressed all in black, in keeping with traditional protocol that is no longer always observed by all female dignitaries visiting the Vatican.
