President Trump in Rome for Audience with Pope Francis

Tuesday, US President Donald Trump arrived in Rome for a high-profile meeting with Pope Francis on his 1st official trip to Europe since becoming US President.

President Trump, on a tour that has already taken him to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Palestinian territories, touched down in the Italian capital aboard Air Force One just before 1630 GMT.

The President is due at the Vatican on Wednesday morning for a meeting with the Pope, with whom he has common ground to explore the issues of abortion and the persecution of Christians.

After the papal audience, also to be attended by President Trump’s wife Melania and daughter Ivanka, the Trump couple are to be given a tour of the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica.

The President will then meet Italy’s President and Prime Minister at the presidential palace, the Quirinale, while Melania visits a children’s hospital and Ivanka discusses migrant issues with members of the St Egidio religious community.

The Trump Team is due to fly to Brussels Wednesday afternoon for meetings with EU and NATO officials before returning to Italy late Thursday for the G7 Summit in Sicily Friday and Saturday.
