It's only been a few hours since Donald Trump has been sworn in as the United States' 45th President, and Pope Francis already has a message for him.
As the Pope usually does with the incoming president, he sent a telegram, with this one focusing on "those in need."

Pope Francis wrote:
"At a time when our human family is beset by grave humanitarian crises demanding farsighted and united political responses, I pray that your decisions will be guided by the rich spiritual and ethical values that have shaped the history of the American people and your nation's commitment to the advancement of human dignity and freedom worldwide."
And he continued, adding Trump's leadership will "be measured above all by its concern for the poor, the outcast and those in need who, like Lazarus, stand before our door."
It's a reminder, but obviously not a warning.
The Argentinian finished his message off by wishing the controversial celeb and the rest of his family "his blessing of peace, concord and every material and spiritual prosperity."

The two have had a bit of a rocky relationship during Trump's campaign, with the Pope telling him "building walls" is not Christian." Donald did not take kindly to his criticism.
But here we are.
Do U think there will be more tension for these two in the future?
