President Obama and Pope Francis spoke at length about shared concerns on foreign policy and income inequality during their historic meeting at the Vatican, President Obama said Thursday.
But Vatican officials also raised social issues, including the birth-control mandate in ObamaCare and abortion, the Vatican said.
Obama told reporters that “the largest bulk of the time” was spent discussing two central concerns of the pope: growing inequality and “how elusive peace is around the world.”
He downplayed the Catholic Church’s concerns over the provision of the Affordable Care Act that requires employers to provide different forms of birth control as part of their insurance plans.
“We actually didn’t talk a lot about social schisms,” Obama said.
