Donald Trump & Catholicism: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Published 5:00 am EDT, May 24, 2017 Updated 5:00 am EDT, May 24, 2017

President Donald Trump on Wednesday will visit Vatican City and meet with Pope Francis.

This comes as part of Trump’s first foreign trip as president, which has already taken him to Saudi Arabia and Israel. In addition to meeting with Pope Francis, Trump on Wednesday will also meet with the Vatican secretary of state and tour St. Peter’s Basilica.

So ahead of this Wednesday visit, what has been Donald Trump’s relationship with the Catholic church? Here’s what you need to know.

1. Trump Himself is a Presbyterian

Donald Trump himself is Christian, but he is not Catholic. Instead, Donald Trump identifies as a Presbyterian.

Growing up, Trump and his family attended the Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan, one of the oldest Protestant congregations in North America. This remained Trump’s church as he grew up, and this is where he was married to his first wife, Ivana, according to The Huffington Post.

“People are so shocked when they find…out I am Protestant,” Trump said in 2015, according to CNN. “I am Presbyterian. And I go to church and I love God and I love my church.”
