Trump criticized the pope during his 2016 presidential campaign after Francis said that anyone who wants to build a wall - as Trump had promised to do along the southern border with Mexico - was "not Christian".

For some unknown reason, Trump left Spicer's name off the list of delegate members who would be admitted to attend the special audience.

The missiles did not pose a threat to North America nor to the USA territory of Guam, said the Pacific Command. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said US President Donald Trump was aware of the launches.

Spicer quit his press secretary post in July but stayed with the Trump administration to help his successor - Sarah Huckabee Sanders - transition into her new role.

At the time, his removal from the visit raised fresh questions about Spicer's standing as the chief White House spokesman.
