As part of his foreign trip, Donald Trump arrived in Rome and met Pope Francis at the Vatican. After tweeting out his thoughts, social media wasn't too kind in return.

Trump on the Pope

When it was announced that Donald Trump was going to be heading off on his first foreign trip as commander in chief, many wondered what would take place during the week-plus visit out of the United States. Prior to taking off, the former host of "The Apprentice" was hit with an onslaught of negative reporting that further linked him and his administration back to Russia.

The Washington Post reported that Trump shared classified information with two high-ranking Russian officials, while additional reports accused the president of trying to convince now fired FBI Director James Comey to back off his investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. With the pressure mounting, Trump left the White House and the United States last Friday, and made his way across the globe. After stops in Saudi Arabia and Israel that both received mixed reactions depending on personal politics, Trump landed in Rome and met with Pope Francis on Wednesday. As seen on his Twitter account on May 24, Trump was quick to gloat about the get together.

Taking to his Twitter account not long after meeting Pope Francis, Donald Trump attached a video clip of the two while adding a personal message from himself.

"Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "I leave the Vatican more determined than ever to pursue PEACE in our world." Despite Trump's praise, the Pope appeared to get slightly political as The Hill reported that the president was given a letter on climate change by the Catholic leader during the meeting.

Twitter roasts Trump

Within minutes of Donald Trump's tweet, social media users were quick to fire back with thoughts of their own. "Why were you all dressed for a funeral?

And what's with the shit-eater grin?" writer Mike P Williams wrote, while showing a side-by-side photo of Trump and former President Barack Obama.

"Mate, he looks like he can't wait to get away from you," Neil Claxton tweeted out, while posting a photo where Pope Francis doesn't appear pleased with meeting Donald Trump. "Why avoid eye contact with The Pope here then?Can't hide your true motives?

A picture is worth a thousand words," another tweet read.

"You're a serial philanderer& adulterer," author Joe Papp wrote on his Twitter feed. "You just sold $300bn of arms to Saudi Arabia, who you said was behind 9/11 & who's starving the people of Yemen. You know not what peace is," Trita Parsi added. The backlash continued as it was made clear that many Americans were not impressed with Donald Trump's visit to the Vatican.
