MSNBC: Big Cheers in Rome for Pope Francis and President Trump

The crowd in St. Peter’s Square cheered at the sight of Pope Francis and the president.

NBC News‘ Claudio Lavanga reported Wednesday that the crowds in Rome cheered for the image of Pope Francis and President Trump that was broadcast on the big screens.

“There was a big cheer that came up, rised up when on those screens, the Pope and President Trump appeared,” Lavanga said.

He added that it “wasn’t clear whether they were cheering for the fact that the two met or just because they saw Pope Francis popping up on the screen.”

Trump met with the Pope before his weekly general audience in St. Peter’s Square.
