President Donald Trump, his daughter Ivanka Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited the Vatican on Wednesday morning for a meeting with Pope Francis.
Multiple stories were born from the family's visit, namely the news that Melania Trump wore a veil to the meeting in Vatican City, but she did not cover her head on a trip to Saudi Arabia last week.
Another, admittedly, less pressing issue has erupted from the "fantastic" visit to Vatican. A photo showing smiley Donald, glum Ivanka, Melania and Pope Francis has been reaching far and wide for its eeriness. It appears in the portrait that the pope does not seem too happy to be there with the Trumps.

While we're sure it was just a well-timed photo and that Pope Francis may not despise Trump as much as it seems in the photographed moment, the picture has taken on a life of its own online today.
The jokers of Twitter are using this photo opportunity like the jokers of Twitter often do – they're reposting the photo with their own captions and edits, morphing the strange snap into a just as strange meme, naturally.
There is even a video of Pope Francis doing a Kanye West smile-to-stern-look in an instant after looking at Donald Trump.
LMAO! Even Pope Francis made the "Would you look at this f*cking guy" face that everyone makes when they meet Trump. pic.twitter.com/6wtdVbnbYt— Dab Aggin (@DabAggin) May 24, 2017

Now, for the important stuff.
During the meeting, Pope Francis and Donald Trump discussed the environment, according to reports. Bloomberg Politics claims that, in talks at the Vatican on Wednesday, the pope urged the president to meet U.S. commitments on climate change.
Pope Francis, who is famous for his environmental advocation, even gave Trump his copy of his 2015 letter calling for urgent action on fossil fuel emissions.
Meanwhile, Trump gifted Pope Francis a copy of a special edition version of some of Martin Luther King's works.
