A meeting between Donald Trump and the Pope has spurred a pretty great meme
Trump visited the pontiff while on his first overseas trip as president.
Donald Trump and the Pope met at Vatican City to set aside their differences and spread a message of peace across the world.
The US president visited Pope Francis with his wife Melania and several aides, including daughter Ivanka, and the two had a private chat for half an hour.
The pair haven’t always seen eye to eye with Francis criticising the president’s campaign pledge to build a wall along the Mexican border and claims the US should turn away Muslim immigrants and refugees.
The Pope had said: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”
Nevertheless, after the meeting he handed Trump a medal featuring an olive branch – a symbol of peace – and posed for photographs.
The awkward photos – in which Trump is grinning like a Cheshire cat while Melania, Ivanka and the Pope look like they’d be anywhere but the Vatican – didn’t go unnoticed, and soon spurred another great meme from Trump’s nine-day international trip.

I like the fact that the Pope looks like he's slowly shuffling sideways to leave. pic.twitter.com/v3XrE0KXsC— El Hijo Del Santo (@iamsammypanther) May 24, 2017
