Mural on Roman wall depicts Pope embracing Trump

May 12, 2017

A pseudonymous street artist in Rome has raised eyebrows with a mural that depicts Pope Francis embracing and kissing Donald Trump.

The mural, painted on paper that was mounted to the wall of a building near the Vatican, depicts the Pope with a halo, while Trump, who is wearing a pistol, has a devil’s horns. The mural is clearly intended as a commentary on the meeting between the Pope and Trump, which will take place later this month.
