The Pope and Javier Milei meet amid rumors about Francis’ trip to Argentina

Rome — Despite a rocky start, Argentine President Javier Milei and Pope Francis seemed to have hit it off in their meeting on Monday, amid speculation that the Argentine pontiff might finally return home for a visit this year.

The two men met for an hour and 10 minutes, according to the Vatican, an unusually long audience for Francis’ papacy.

On the way to his audience, Milei stopped his convoy on the Via della Conciliazione boulevard leading to the Vatican to greet supporters and then continued towards the Apostolic Palace. He presented Francisco with some of his favorite Argentine alfajores of dulce de leche and lemon cookies, while Francisco presented him with the documents of his papacy and a medallion.

The previous day a cordial tone had already been set when Milei hugged Francisco at the end of a mass to canonize the first Argentine saint. With a smile, the pope commented that the president had cut his hair.
