Speaking at a meet-the-press conference, the US Presidential candidate Trump said that Pope Francis is a politician and is being used by Mexicans.
Donald Trump proposed that the US border fence will be extended along with the full length of the border.
It came after Pope Francis gave his usual press conference onboard back from his Mexican trip. He had answered a few questions based on Donald Trump.
“Aristotle defined the human person as ‘animal politicus’ — (so) at least I’m a human person” in Trump’s eyes, Pope Francis said. “As far as being ‘a pawn,’” the Pope said, “that’s up to your (the people) Judgement,” he added.
Although, Trump claimed that he did not know many of the comments that the Pope made, he was well aware that Pope Francis said that “a person who thinks only of building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, isn’t Christian.”
Asked if a Catholic could vote for such a candidate in good conscience, the Pope told reporters: “I’m not going to get mixed up in that. I’ll just say, this man is not Christian if he says this” about building walls.
The Pope after dealing with issue related to Donald Trump also had sessions of interesting discussions with the Press talking about contraception and the Zika virus, the recently publicised letters between St John Paul II and a woman philosopher, the sex abuse scandal and the reaction of Ukrainian Catholics to the joint declaration he signed with Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill of Moscow last Friday in Cuba.
