No agenda was revealed, except that afterward, Trump could be heard saying, "Thank you. I won't forget what you said".

He is something. He is really good. He described the half-hour meeting, in the pope's private office, as "great" and "fantastic".

These have included Francis calling Trump's border wall plans "not Christian" and the billionaire tycoon suggesting the pope might be glad to have him in charge if the Islamic State group attacked the Vatican.

He will fly to Brussels later in the day for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, and will wrap up his tour on Friday after the G7 summit on the Italian island of Sicily.
