President Trump and The Pope came face to face after the mainstream media had promoted this clash of the titans as likely to end in fireworks as the two world ‘leaders’ sparred over border walls, socialism, immigration, global terror, and whatever else the media thinks will divide the world most effectively.
Sadly for the media, nothing crazy happened…

The Pope even joked with Melania about how ‘big’ Trump was…

Maybe that’s enough of a slur to raise CNN’s threat level?
“Thank you. I won’t forget what you said,” Trump told Pope Francis, before leaving the Pope’s private study after a half-hour private meeting.
As CNN reports, neither Trump nor the Pope revealed what their conversation entailed and neither the White House nor the Vatican offered any immediate clues, leaving those curious about the first meeting between the two starkly different world leaders thirsting for more. In a statement, the Vatican said only that the two men discussed “the promotion of peace in the world through political negotiation and interreligious dialogue” and homed in on the need to protect Christians in the Middle East.
“He is something,” Trump said of the Pope later in the day, during a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
“We had a fantastic meeting. We’re liking Italy very, very much and it was an honor to be with the Pope.”
Let’s hope some anonymous source has some inside scoop of the shouting match they had, or the major disagreements?
