Melania Trump First Catholic FLOTUS In Decades

Melania Trump First Catholic FLOTUS In Decades

When first lady Melania Trump finally moves into the White House this summer, she will become its first Roman Catholic resident in more than 50 years. She was raised in a Communist-supporting family in Slovenia and was not baptised as a child.

After the hosts of the show spent some time discussing Trump's proposed budget, co-host Mika Brzezinski introduced the next segment on the president's meeting with the pope. He tweeted: "Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis".

Vatican rules require women who have an audience with the Pope to wear long sleeves, formal black clothing and a veil over their heads. But despite the fact that Trump's aides reportedly yielded their spots on the trip so that Catholic staffers could visit the Vatican, Spicer still didn't get to attend, Politico and CNN reported.

"When the Kennedys visited Pope John XXIII in 1962, more than 15,000 people cheered Jackie when she entered Vatican City", she said. Just a few days into Trump's first nine-day tour overseas as president, there have been plenty of awkward situations already, including an awkward hand-swatting situation (and then a second one), the president's cringe-worthy outburst in Israel and an awkward family photo that's been memed, re-memed and memed again.

The pope himself had criticized Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign for his plan to put up a border wall along the U.S. President Donald Trump is Presbyterian.

"What do you feed him, putizza?" the pontiff asked, in an apparent attempt to make small talk.

Trump said he would read the book which the Pope gave to him as a gift.

Asked by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker as they began talks in front of a battery of cameras if he was exhausted, Trump, 70, said he had "covered a lot of countries, lot of leaders, some great leaders".

In addition to the medallion, the pope also gave President Trump a personally signed copy of his message for World Peace Day 2017.

"I think you will enjoy them", Trump told the pope.
