Pope 'terrific', Saudi 'spectacular' - Trump waxes lyrical on foreign tour

Pope 'terrific', Saudi 'spectacular' - Trump waxes lyrical on foreign tour

This week Donald Trump and his political revenue, consisting of his daughter/personal assistant, Ivanka, and his wife-who-maybe-hates-him, Melania, visited Vatican City. "We had a fantastic meeting".

President Trump meets Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday.

Since Melania sported a veil in her meeting with the pope, accusations of double standards were raised for the Trumps.

"By putting everybody together you can really build a coalition and show that it's not a Muslim problem, it's not a Jewish problem, it's not a Catholic problem, it's not a Christian problem, it really is a world problem", the official said.

When President Trump visits the Vatican next week, he will be transformed by the radiant wisdom of His Holiness, the Pope, into a fully fledged climate change believer. "We can use peace", the President said, concurring with the symbolism. Trump tweeted in 2013 that paying for your own hotel bill in person was not "Pope-like" after the pontiff stopped by a church-run hotel to settle the bill at the facility where he'd been staying prior to his election. While the Pope gave Trump a signed copy of a message he delivered for World Peace Day, along with some of his writings about the need to protect the environment, Trump gave him a boxed set of writings by the civil rights leader Martin Luther King, theBBC reported.




The Pope also gifted Trump a medallion carved with an olive tree, which he said is a symbol of peace.

Signaling some openness to the pope's thinking, Trump is said to have uttered, "I won't forget what you said", as he left their private session.

But while his talks in Saudi Arabia and Israel were mostly friendly, the meeting between the head of the Roman Catholic Church and the thrice-married, blunt-spoken Trump could be a little more confrontational.

Melania and Ivanka wore conservative black dresses and veils during their trip to the Vatican.

At the time, Donald Trump had responded by saying the Pope's questioning of his faith was "disgraceful".
