The Trump administration is reaching out to the Vatican about a possible meeting with Pope Francis during Trump’s trip to Italy in May for the G8 meeting. White House spokesman Sean Spicer said: “We would be honored to have an audience with his Holiness.”
The White House said Tuesday it is reaching out to the Vatican to set up a possible meeting President Trump and Pope Francis, little more than a year after they clashed over Trump’s proposed anti-immigration wall between the United States and Mexico.
“We will be reaching out to the Vatican to see if an audience with the pope can be accommodated,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer said. “We would be honored to have an audience with his holiness.”
Vatican spokesman Greg Burke told AFP that, “as of the end of last week we had not had an official request for an audience but for sure we would welcome it.”
