ROME (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump's first trip abroad (all times Rome, Italy):
President Donald Trump has arrived at the Vatican to meet with Pope Francis.
Trump arrived Wednesday morning at the Apostolic Palace for an audience with the pontiff. The meeting comes midway through his 9-day international trip.
The president and pope have not always seen eye to eye.
