President Trump meets Pope Francis

Pope Francis and President Donald Trump met at the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City on Wednesday. Trump's audience with the pontiff comes midway through his 9-day international trip.


The two leaders set aside their differences to broadcast a tone of peace.


Pope Francis shared a light moment with First Lady Melania Trump Wednesday. As he he met her, he asked via translator, "What do you give him to eat, Potica?" He was referring to a traditional Slovenian dish, though some thought he said "pizza."


Melania Trump wore a veil to the Vatican Wednesday to meet the pope, but no head covering days earlier to meet the king of Saudi Arabia, a religiously conservative country where most women cover themselves up from head to toe. Why the difference?
