Pope Francis sounded off on the U.S.-Mexico border during a news conference on his flight from Mexico back to the Vatican Thursday. But one quote in particular has people talking on both sides of the aisle.
According to CNN, the Catholic pontiff, when asked about Donald Trump's immigration plan, said, "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. As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, 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."
Trump was quick to respond, saying, "No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man's religion or faith. 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. ISIS would have been eradicated unlike what is happening now with our all talk no action politicians. 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."
