Pope asks Trump to be peacemaker, gives him environmental letter

By Philip Pullella and Steve Holland | VATICAN CITY

Pope Francis urged U.S. President Donald Trump to be a peacemaker at their first meeting on Wednesday after they exchanged sharp words last year, and Trump promised he would not forget the pontiff's message.

Under clear blue skies, Trump received a tribute from the Swiss Guard in a Vatican courtyard when he arrived.

He entered a small elevator taking him to the third floor of the Apostolic Palace and, after a long ceremonial walk past frescoed corridors, shook the pope's hand at the entrance to the private study that the frugal pontiff uses only for official occasions.

Francis also gave Trump a signed copy of his 2017 peace message whose title is "Nonviolence - A Style of Politics for Peace", and a copy of his 2015 encyclical letter on the need to protect the environment from the effects of climate change.

2. Giving Trump something to read is like giving a fish a bicycle

3. Consider that letter shredded and in the trash. Trump doesn't give a heck.
