Trump meets Pope Francis at Vatican

It has caused a bit of a stir among political observes that both Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump wore veils on their heads to meet Pope Francis, but went bare-headed while visiting Saudi Arabia.

Prompted by European Council President Donald Tusk, who called images of the Saudi visit "spectacular", Trump replied: "It was very spectacular".

"We can use peace", Trump said. But after a half-hour meeting behind closed doors, Francis seemed to have cheered up considerably.

But if that wasn't enough shade, the pope also asked Melania if she'd been feeding Trump potica, a rich and sweet nut-filled Slovenian bread, according to People.

The two men have in the past clashed on issues such as migration, climate change and a Mexico-US wall. The meeting appeared quite respectful but the Pope left Trump with an epic gift: the encyclical he penned on climate change.

Grisham, the first lady's communications director, would not comment as to whether the first couple would raise their son in the Catholic faith, nor did she answer a request for specifics about Melania Trump's religious habits, including whether she regularly attends Mass. "I think you will enjoy them", Trump told the Pope.

Trump will soon be leaving Rome, en route to Brussels for meetings with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders.

The Pope gave Mr Trump a signed copy of a message he delivered for World Peace Day, along with some of his writings about the need to protect the environment.

Trump gave Francis a boxed set of five first-edition books by Martin Luther King Jr. and a bronze sculpture titled "Rising Above", representing a peaceful tomorrow and created to evoke the values of unity and resilience.

"Today's visit with His Holiness Pope Francis @Pontifex is one I'll never forget".

While former president Barack Obama was in office, he was joined by his press secretaries, Jay Carney and Robert Gibbs, during sessions at the Vatican with Francis and his predecessor, Pope Benedict.

No further details, such as when the first lady became Catholic, were given.

Pope Francis referred to Mr Trump's imposing bulk by asking Mrs Trump: "What do you feed him on?"

Ivanka and Jared were a constant presence at Trump's side in Israel.

Significant protests are also expected in Brussels where he will meet European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials.
