Trump to Pope: When ISIS attacks the Vatican, he will wish I was president

Donald Trump responded to Pope Francis questioning his faith by saying, “a person who thinks only about building walls wherever they may be is not a Christian.”

Breitbart’s Pam Key reports: during his rally in Kiawah, SC, Republican presidential candidate expressed his earnest dissatisfaction towards the current leader of the Catholic Church, who has recently ventured upon challenging Donald Trump’s religious beliefs. The Pope, who in Trump’s opinion “only heard one side of the story” of the Mexican illegal immigration told by the current White House administration, allegedly said that “maybe Donald Trump is not Christian”.

Key provides a quote: “It’s disgraceful. I’m proud to be a Christian, and as president, I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now with our current president. OK? Believe me. No leader, very important, and this is just given out to the press two seconds ago—no leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith. Especially when they feed all sorts of false information into them.

They are using the Pope as a pawn, and they should be ashamed of themselves —that’s the Mexican government. They should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant and dangerous and bad for the United States, OK? Period. That’s it. OK, period. So I come to this beautiful place and I look, everything is so beautiful. The people are beautiful. Everything is nice, and I get it. The Pope just made a statement. Did he say good things? No. I don’t think you’re going to like it so much.”

Moreover, Trump added that among those immigrants entering the US very well might be ISIS’ combatants disguised as asylum seekers, and Trump’s intentions are to stop illegal immigration in order to prevent threats to the national security. Key cites Trump: “If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows, is ISIS’ ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed Donald Trump would have been president, because, it’s true; it’s true this would not have happened because ISIS would have been eradicated.”

Trump concluded: “For a religious leader to question to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. Did the Pope say good things? No.”

EXPERT OPINION

Joshua Tartakovsky

Pope Francis is making less and less sense every day. While he rightly warned about the ongoing Third World War and about the dangers of today’s Capitalism, he gullibly believed the Mexican government’s arguments against a wall. But had he been more aware, he would have asked himself whether the Mexican government gains from the drug flow from Mexico to the US.  What right does he have to intervene in US sovereignty and demand that they not build a wall? Cuba is also in favor of migration control and asked Costa Rica not to give visas to Cubans. Nowadays any drug addict or dealer can cross across the border to the US… The only ones benefiting in large from uncontrolled migrations are the transnational corporations as more and more Mexicans are returning home, far more than those entering the US, as GIA had already noted.   As others mentioned, if the Pope wishes to let go of borders, he should set an example and demolish the walls surrounding the Vatican. Alas, Pope Francis wants open borders. This means only one thing: the Islamization of Europe. What will he say the day ISIS takes over the Vatican? And does a true Christian question the faith of other Christians just because they support borders and want to protect their country from a flood of migrants?
