Ivanka And Melania Wear Headscarf To Meet Pope

Melania and Ivanka respected the Vatican clothing and wore back dressed as well as veils.

The pope handed out rosaries to members of the delegation before the group posed for pictures following which the Pope bid farewell to the president and his wife. The Trump women's choice not to wear it suggested that they do not agree with Islam's prescribing female dress and behavior, and would not make a show of wearing a veil no matter how much it might have served the diplomatic message that the president is not anti-Muslim.

Cillizza accompanied his post with another photo of Trump and Pope Francis; this time, the pope looks plenty happy as he smiles pleasantly at Trump.

Neither Trump nor the Pope revealed what their conversation entailed, but readouts from the White House and the Vatican highlighted terrorism, climate change and peace as agenda items covered. "I hope you do", Trump said.

Vatican City was the third stop on the president and his entourage's foreign trip.

"Peace is possible if we put aside the pain and disagreements of the past and commit together to finally resolving this crisis, which has dragged on for almost half a century or more", Trump said during a speech at the Israel Museum on Tuesday.

Asked recently what he expected from his meeting with Trump, given their differing views, Francis replied, "I will tell him what I think".

"Thank you. I won't forget what you said", Trump said.

"He is something", Trump said of the pontiff.

How will President Trump's proposed $4.1 trillion federal spending plan affect individual government agencies? Trump gave the Pope a boxed set of writings by the civil rights leader Martin Luther King.

Returning from a visit past year to the US-Mexico border, he was asked about Trump's campaign pledge to build a border wall and he replied that anyone who wants to build a wall is "not Christian". "I think they were encouraging continued participation in the Paris accord", Tillerson said.

After a tour of the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica, the president left Vatican City for separate meetings with Italian President Sergio Mattarella and Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. He is something. He is really good.

Trump described the meeting as "fantastic" and an "honor".

In a statement, the Vatican said the two sides agreed on their "joint commitment in favor of life and freedom of worship and conscience". It also opposes his plan to build a wall on the USA border with Mexico.

Trump said it was "disgraceful" of the Argentine-born pope, who represents just over half of the world's two billion Christians, to question his faith.

As is tradition, the Pope and President exchanged gifts.

For the White House, the Vatican stop caps a tour through key sites of the world's three major religions, following stops in Saudi Arabia and Israel, created to promote tolerance and a united approach to terrorism. When he changed his mind, the Vatican squeezed him in at 8:30 am on a Wednesday morning, an unusual day and an unusually early time.

He is now flying on to Brussels for a summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the Western military alliance.
