    Donald Trump has signalled that he expects to meet Pope Francis, with whom he has clashed in the past, when he travels to Italy next month.

    The US president will be in Italy late May for a meeting of the G7 industrialised democracies. An audience with the pontiff would bring together two wildly contrasting world views.

    . . .

    Minutes later Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, admitted that the meeting has not yet been confirmed. Trump’s assertion now risks making a non-meeting look like a snub.

    1. A "non-meeting" would be epic…

    It’s a win-win.  Trump will either make an ass of himself (yet again) when meeting the Pope, or unable to control his Twitter remarks if it doesn’t come to pass.

    Either way, it will be hilarious to see the reaction of his Catholic backers.
