There are plenty of photos and videos of the pontiff smiling with the president, but one photo showing an unsmiling Francis standing next to a beaming Trump is circulating widely.
But one photo does not capture an entire event. Several photos also show the pope smiling with the president.
Trump posted a short video of his meeting on his Twitter feed, showing the two talking at a table. A Vatican communique said the two spoke about international affairs and interreligious dialogue, especially about the situation in the Middle East and the protection of Christian communities.
The pope shared a light moment with first lady Melania Trump when he pointed toward Trump and asked her, “What do you give him to eat? Potica?” Potica is a Slovenian festive roll, according to the Associated Press.
Meanwhile, past photos of the pontiff meeting with President Barack Obama show a range of moods.
