Donald Trump announces meeting with Pope Francis in Italy before it is finalized
White House spokesman said president’s declared visit with pope, who has opposing views on the border wall and climate change, is not confirmed

Donald Trump has signalled that he expects to meet Pope Francis, with whom he has clashed in the past, when he travels to Italy next month.

The US president will be in Italy late May for a meeting of the G7 industrialised democracies. An audience with the pontiff would bring together two wildly contrasting world views.

“I look very much forward to meeting the pope,” said on Thursday in a joint press conference at the White House with Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni.

Minutes later Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, admitted that the meeting has not yet been confirmed. Trump’s assertion now risks making a non-meeting look like a snub.

The second one is yourself.

3. Just another indication of how senile he is getting to be.

And meeting the Pope won't help that one bit. Besides, he won't remember meeting him anyway.

4. If he does see him, hope Pope Francis will ask him if it's true 34 Patriots didn't show up

to attend the meeting with him at the White House.

6. Yeah, and didn't the sexual predator O'Reilly met the Pope then got fired.

Maybe Pope Francis should say, "Okay, But no handshakes. He can bow and kiss my ring. And give him a Papal gift bag with the soap and a rosary. Oh include one of those little prayer cards with my picture."

8. Like the golden carriage ride in England,

I wonder if Trump will demand that the Pope let him pass out some of those "little crackers" to folks in the crowd.

9. I thought he had said some not very nice things about the Pope during his campaign.

I wonder if he will insist on getting a ride in the Pope mobile?

17. I hope the Pope brings The Rite of Exorcism with him.

It's useless on dt, but perhaps the minions can be saved.
And Holy Water. Maybe he can dissolve dt with it.
