President Donald Trump and Pope Francis met today (May 24, 2017) at the Vatican where they spoke for 30 minutes in private, and vowed to fight together for life, peace, and freedom of worship, according to the Christian Post website.
"Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis. I leave the Vatican more determined than ever to pursue PEACE in our world," Trump posted on Twitter following the meeting.
Trump and the pope also spoke on the "promotion of peace in the world through political negotiation and interreligious dialogue," along with the need to protect Christian communities in the Middle East, which are suffering severely due to radical Islamic terrorists.
During their meeting, the pope presented Trump with a split medallion held together by an olive tree, symbolizing peace.
