COMING UP:Share Opener Variant 4



>> The US President, coming face-to-face with one of his most high-profile critics. Donald Trump on a trip to the Vatican, to meet Pope Francis for the first time. Joined by his wife Melania, daughter Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner. The pontiff trying to break the ice, asking about what Mrs. Trump gives her husband for supper.
> What do you give him to eat?>>
The two men don't see eye-to-eye, on issues like immigration and climate change. They famously clashed over Trump's plan to build a wall along the US/Mexico border. The pontiff said, building walls, rather than bridges, is not Christian.
Trump, in turn, said it was disgraceful of the Pope to question his faith. The President hadn't planned to stop off in Rome during his European tour, something the Vatican took as a snub. But when he changed his mind, he was squeezed in at 8:30 AM on Wednesday morning.
An unusual day, and an unusually early time. The Pope gave Trump a small sculptured olive tree, symbolizing peace. And a copy of his encyclical letter, on the need to protect the environment from the effects of climate change. Trump handed over a boxed set of writings by Martin Luther King, and promised not to forget the pontiff's message.
