Obama to Meet Pope Francis

Eventually. Someday.


The White House on Tuesday said President Obama will visit Pope Francis, though it did not say when the meeting would happen.

"I do not have any more details for you on that, timing or location, other than to say that the president looks forward to the visit," White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday during his press briefing.

Carney made the comments after Secretary of State John Kerry, during a visit to Vatican City, said Obama was looking forward to meeting Pope Francis.
