Photos: Trump and Pope Francis set in “very special” meeting

U.S. President Donald Trump arrived at the Vatican on Wednesday for talks with one of his most high-profile critics, Pope Francis, after the two men exchanged sharp words during the presidential campaign last year. According o Reuters,Trump looked uncomfortable as he entered a small elevator taking him to the third floor of the Apostolic Palace, to the pope’s private study.


Following behind Trump were daughter Ivanka, her husband, Jared Kushner, a top White House aide, national security adviser H.R. McMaster and adviser Hope Hicks. The two men then posed for photograghs and the pope kept a stern face while Trump beamed for the cameras. The two leaders had a spat last year when Trump was still a Republican contender for the presidency. Francis called his plan to build a wall on the Mexico border “not Christian,” a comment that Trump dismissed as “disgraceful.”
