The Vatican announces Pope Francis will meet with President Trump during his trip to Italy for a G-7 summit

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis will receive U.S. President Donald Trump, on May 24, the Vatican has announced.

According to a statement released by the Vatican Press office on Thursday afternoon at 5:45 p.m. local time, the pope’s meeting with President Trump will take place at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, in the Apostolic Palace. Following his meeting with Pope Francis, President Trump will then meet with His Eminence Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, and Archbishop Paul Gallagher, Secretary for Relations with States for the Holy See.
