The official Vatican news agency reported that Pope Francis hosted former President Bill Clinton and "other friends accompanying the former president on his trip to Rome and Europe." Although the article does not clarify who was part of this group, in a video uploaded by Vatican News, Alexander Soros can be seen among the attendees:

The meeting was part of Soros' European tour. The day before, he visited Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama alongside Clinton.
What a treat to be with President Clinton in Albania. One of the most pro-American countries in the world & a stalwart ally thanks in part to its prime minister @ediramaal, who is coincidently born on July 4th. Great to spend today with an 🇺🇸 hero and one of the US’s best friends pic.twitter.com/JuNqBvFfuI
