What gift did Pope Francis give President Donald Trump during the president’s first foreign trip in May 2017?
Pope’s 2015 encyclical on climate change
Pope Francis presented President Trump with a copy of his 2015 encyclical that called for the urgent, dramatic reduction in fossil fuel dependence. The two men met privately in the Pope’s study for a 30-minute meeting. By presenting President Trump with this gift, the Pope seemed to hint that perhaps Mr. Trump should reevaluate his skeptical stance on the climate change debate. Mr. Trump has voiced opinions that perhaps climate change as a world-wide phenomenon is a hoax bolstered by propaganda from the Chinese. President Trump presented Pope Francis with a special edition of the collected works of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
