CNN News 特朗普访问梵蒂冈 同教皇会面 20170717
AZUZ: After visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel on his first trip abroad as U.S. leader, President Donald Trump headed to Europe, visiting the Vatican, the world's smallest country yesterday. There, he met with Pope Francis, the leader of the Roman Catholic Church.
A little more than a year ago when Mr. Trump was a candidate for office, he and pope publicly criticized each other and reporters say that while the mood between them appeared stiff before their private half hour meeting yesterday, it had lightened by the end.
President Trump called the meeting fantastic and said it was an honor to be with the pope. We don't know exactly what the two leaders discussed, but summaries from both the White House and the Vatican indicated that terrorism, climate change and peace came up.
After leaving Rome, Italy, the president is scheduled to visit Belgium today.
