Pope Francis yesterday slammed Donald Trump, saying “a person who thinks only about building walls… and not of building bridges, is not Christian”. The pontiff was referring to the wall that Trump wants to build to keep out illegal Mexican immigrants from the USA.
The 37-second video below is the presidential candidate’s response to the Pope whom Trump described as “a very political person”. It’s true that the Vatican has been increasingly political under the present pontiff.
Trump said, “… as President, I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened…”.
The influence of political Christianity is comparable to that of political Islam. Religion plays a role in high public office in Western countries too. Imagine President Trump sitting in the Oval Office.
