Pool report #9 - POTUS on his meeting w Pope Francis
Carol Lee • Wall Street Journal
May 24, 2017: 12:43 PM

Pool was brought in to President Trump's meeting with the Italian prime minister.

In response to a question from AP's Julie Pace about how his meeting with Pope Francis went, POTUS said "Great."

"He is something," Mr. Trump said of the pope. "We had a fantastic meeting."

"We're liking Italy very much," he said, mentioning the prime minister.

"We're liking Italy very, very much and it was an honor to be with the pope," Mr. Trump said.

Pool was then ushered out.

The prime minister was speaking to POTUS when pool entered it he spoke too softly for your pooler to hear. POTUS and the prime minister were seated across from each other at a long rectangular table. Their delegations were seated beside them on each side.

Pool is moving to hold in the vans.
