However, Trump and the Pope discussed several issues during his visit to Italy, including the situation in Syria, Libya, and Isis-controlled territory.

Traveling as a couple can be stressful, and the first lady and her husband aren't immune to that, five-star hotels and Secret Service and all.

Asked by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker as they began talks in front of a battery of cameras if he was exhausted, Trump, 70, said he had "covered a lot of countries, lot of leaders, some great leaders". Did the Argentinean and the Slovenian really talk ' pizza ' when they met?

Trump has used his Twitter account to weigh in on just about every political figure under the sun.

After meeting the Pope, Trump tweeted Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis.

"A person who thinks only about building walls ... is not Christian".

In the past year, Pope Francis and Mr Trump have swopped jibes and debated on subjects ranging from migration to unbridled capitalism, as well as the environment. The Pope has said Trump isn't a true Christian while Trump has said that ISIS will one day attack the Vatican. Over the years, Pope Francis has relaxed many rules his predecessors followed in terms of dressing.


"If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS..."


Trump included close family members and some long-time aides in the meeting, in a gesture being interpreted as a demonstration of his commitment to loyalists.

In the pope's 2015 encyclical on climate change, he argues that climate change is backed by a very consistent scientific consensus and that the world must confront the causes of climate change while mitigating the effects.

Trump hit back by calling Francis's comments "disgraceful" for doubting his faith.

"Well, I'll be reading them", the US President said.


"The Lord asks us to welcome migrants."


The visit came on the third leg of Mr Trump's first overseas trip as president, which has already taken him to Saudi Arabia and to Israel and the Palestinian territories. "I leave the Vatican more determined than ever to pursue PEACE in our world".

"We went to the Pope", Trump told Tusk and Juncker.
