Pope Francis warns about Trump


2017-01-23 02:43:06
Pope Francis warned about the rise of populism, a statement that can be easily linked to one man - the newly inaugurated president Trump. Even though he did say that we should not yet judget the newly elected leader becuase it's too early to do so. As many other ordinary people, he said "we'll see what Trump does".

"I don't like to get ahead of myself nor judge people prematurely. We will see how he acts, what he does, and then I will have an opinion," he said.

In the past Pope Francis has said Christians should not give into the temptation to build walls, even in the face of 'hateful and cowardly attacks,' [a reference to global terrorism].

Donald Trump, on the other hand, has called Pope Francis 'disgraceful' and has said Vatican will be attacked by Isis.
