Pope Frances DISSES Trump – This Happens IMMEDIATELY After

Breitbart has apparently gotten really desperate to find pro-Trump pieces to write. They’ve now reduced themselves to dredging up a war on words between Donald Trump and Pope Francis from two months ago, and are trying to link them to new poll results.

From Breitbart:

According to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll, during the 50 days prior to the Pope’s suggestion on Feb. 18 that Trump is “not a Christian,” his popularity among Catholic Republicans averaged just 39.8 percent, whereas in the 50 days since that date his support has shot up to an average of 47.9 percent, an increase of 20.4 percent.

On the plane trip home from Mexico to Rome last February, Reuters journalist Phil Pullella told Francis that Republican candidate Donald Trump had accused the Pope of being a “pawn” and a “politician,” and favored deporting 11 million immigrants, heartlessly splitting up families and building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Pulella then asked the Pope whether American Catholics can vote for “a person like this.”

The Pope responded to the reporter that anyone who thinks only of building walls and never of building bridges is no Christian, since this way of thinking is foreign to the gospel. But he also questioned the accuracy of the reporter’s depiction of Trump.

“I would only say: if he said these things, this man is no Christian,” Francis said. “But we’d have to see whether he said these things. And in this matter, I would give him the benefit of the doubt.”

Is Breitbart really going to try to claim that the guy who has openly said that he’s not a Christian and would never apologize for anything he’s ever done, ever, is somehow more Christian than… the Pope? Trump’s poll numbers may be rising, but that doesn’t mean that Catholics have suddenly decided to worship Breitbart’s Dear Leader. It’s also worth pointing out that, while it may be difficult for the brain trust at Breitbart to figure out, the Pope isn’t concerned with just the United States — he represents Catholics all over the world and likely doesn’t really care all that much about the intricacies of American politics.
