Pope Francis has attacked American President, Donald Trump, as he branded him “not a Christian”.
The Pope echoed this on Wednesday while reacting to the president’s constant desire to build walls and to deport illegal migrants in the United States.
When asked about the American president, Pope stated: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” he said.
The pontiff stated this barely three hours after he had concluded his Mexico trip by presiding over a huge Mass in the border city of Ciudad Juárez.
He added that he “was not going to get involved in that” when asked if he was planning on influencing Catholics in how they vote in the presidential election.
“I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that,” Francis maintained.
“We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”
