Donald, Melania, & Ivanka Trump Meet Pope Francis, Meeting Described as 'Stiff'

Pope Francis poses for photographs with President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner at the Apostolic Palace on Wednesday (May 24) in Vatican City, Vatican.

The Pope and Donald Trump‘s meeting was said to be “stiff,” according to People. They exchanged gifts, per tradition, and the Pope said, “This is a medallion by a Roman artist: It is an olive tree, which is a symbol of peace. “We can use peace,” Trump responded, to which the Pope added while looking directly into his eyes (via the New York Times), “It is with all hope that you may become an olive tree to make peace.”

And if you’re wondering about Ivanka and Melania‘s dresses, Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, said “Per Vatican protocol, women who have an audience with the pope are required to wear long sleeves, formal black clothing, and a veil to cover the head.”
