POTUS and Pope Francis are now settling in the Oval Office for a formal bilateral meeting.

At 10:26 pool, staged in the Rose Garden, watched as the two walked slowly and side-by-side from the Residence toward the Oval.  POTUS was on inside from our vantage point, His Holiness on inside. A Vatican translator followed close behind.

At 10:29 pool entered oval and remained only briefly. POTUS commented that the pool was much better behaved than normal but neither man answered shouted questions.
