Pope Calls Trump's Immigration Plan 'Not Christian'

Recently, Pope Francis made a visit to Mexico to celebrate a mass. After his activities, he boarded his Papal plane en route to Rome. While on the plane, he said that Donald Trump is "not Christian" because of his views on immigration. He also said, "This is not in the Gospel." Not one to back down, Trump immediately fired back. He told a packed room at a coastal South Carolina country club, "For a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful."

The Pope's statements were made when reporters on his flight asked him about Trump's statements. Francis 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." He was then asked if American Catholics should vote for someone with Trump's views. The Pope responded, "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." The Pope added, "Vote, don't vote. I won't meddle." Trump also said, "Now it's probably going to be all over the world. Who the hell cares? I don't care! We have to stop illegal immigration...and crime."

North Charleston mayor Keith Summey told Trump, "I don't care if he's the Pope or not. The bottom line is, your faith is your faith. And for someone to question your faith because he disagrees with you, that's getting back to the fight that you have among the different faiths of the world." Summey added, "Nobody can vote to elect him outside of the Catholic church. I think he's a great man, but I think in this instance he spoke out of place."
