Pope, Trump set for first meeting

When President Trump and Pope Francis meet for the first time at the Vatican on Wednesday, every move will be scrutinized for signs of friction.

That’s hardly surprising given the taut history between the two men. More than a year ago, Francis criticized Trump’s proposal to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico — and the then-candidate for the White House shot back.

    Walls are no problem, provided they are explained as “a political and cultural statement” like the Vatican City walls..

    So, a man who is slightly religious, and not as conservative as many people think, is going to meet a man who is President of the United States of America.
