Left-leaning Pope Francis has decided to wade into the presidential race, and has gone after GOP frontrunner Donald Trump for wanting to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border!
Francis, who is adored by liberals for his belief in big government, claims that Trump’s wall is “not Christian.”
Thrusting himself into the combative 2016 presidential campaign, Pope Francis said Thursday that GOP frontrunner Donald Trump “is not Christian” if he calls for the deportation of undocumented immigrants and pledges to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.
The Pope, who was traveling back to Rome from Mexico, where he urged the United States to address the “humanitarian crisis” on its southern border, declined to say whether American Catholics should vote for Trump.
But Francis left little doubt where he stood on the polarizing issue of immigration reform.
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel,” the Pope told journalists.
Does Trump’s desire to build a wall along our southern border make him not a Christian as Pope Francis says or is Trump right that we need to protect our border from illegal immigrants? Share your thoughts below!!
