The Pope Francis told reporters during his recent trip to Mexico, “a person who thinks only about building walls, and not building bridges, is not Christian,”. He was referring to Donald Trump who intends to close Mexican border immediately if he became a president. Trump has also been saying that he would stop Muslims from entering United State if he became president.
In responding to Pope, Donald Trump told Americans in South Carolina Campaign Rally:
” No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith. They are using the Pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant.”
“The Mexican government convinced him ( the Pope) that Donald Trump is not a good guy – because I wanna have a strong border, I wanna stop illegal immigration. So the Mexican government told the Pop tremendous stuff – Donald Trump is not a good guy. I did not know that …The Pope made a statement about me? If it (the statement) is good I like the Pope, if it is bad I do not like the Pop.”
” The ISIS primary goal is to get to the Vatican … If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened. ISIS would have been eradicated unlike what is happening now with our all talk, no action politicians.
“The Mexican government and its leadership has made many disparaging remarks about me to the Pope, because they want to continue to rip off the United States, both on trade and at the border, and they understand I am totally wise to them.
” The Pope only heard one side of the story – he didn’t see the crime, the drug trafficking and the negative economic impact the current policies have on the United States. He doesn’t see how Mexican leadership is outsmarting President Obama and our leadership in every aspect of negotiation.
