Pope Chimes in on Trump
Aboard the Papal airplane Thursday, the Pope dropped a mega bomb on the political world. On his way back to Rome from Mexico, Pope Francis said that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is “not Christian”, mainly because of his views on immigration.
During an impromptu conversation with reporters on his flight back from a visit to Mexico, Francis was asked about Trump and some of his statements – like promising to build a wall between the United States and Mexico if he becomes president.
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” said Pope Francis. “This is not in the gospel.”
Asked if American Catholics should vote for someone with Trump’s views, Francis said:
“I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that. We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt,” he said.
