A meeting between Donald Trump and the Pope has spurred a pretty great meme
Donald Trump and the Pope met at Vatican City to set aside their differences and spread a message of peace across the world.
The US president visited Pope Francis with his wife Melania and several aides, including daughter Ivanka, and the two had a private chat for half an hour.
The pair haven’t always seen eye to eye with Francis criticising the president’s campaign pledge to build a wall along the Mexican border and claims the US should turn away Muslim immigrants and refugees.
The Pope had said: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”
Nevertheless, after the meeting he handed Trump a medal featuring an olive branch – a symbol of peace – and posed for photographs.
The awkward photos – in which Trump is grinning like a Cheshire cat while Melania, Ivanka and the Pope look like they’d be anywhere but the Vatican – didn’t go unnoticed, and soon spurred another great meme from Trump’s nine-day international trip.
