BOOM: Trump Slams Pope Francis On Climate Change With This One Blunt Statement

Leave it to Donald Trump to keep telling it like it is, even when he’s talking about the leader of the Catholic Church.

After Pope Francis talked to the US Congress and President Obama mostly about climate change, Trump took a shot at the Pope that sets him apart from all the other Republican presidential candidates.


The pope said in a speech at the White House Wednesday that climate change was a “problem that can not be left to a future generation,” according to CNN.

Trump saw things differently.

“Look, it’s weather. We have bad floods. I can’t watch the evening news anymore. Every time you turn on the evening news, they show there’s a big rain storm, there’s a tornado, there’s this,” he said in the interview.

“I mean, you can’t watch the news anymore,” he added. “It’s weather, and it’s been that way for so long.”

Trump maintained that America shouldn’t “imperil the companies within our country” with environmental mandates and regulations that could “imperil jobs … actually the middle class, and actually the lower classes are going to be the people with no money.”

“I believe in clean air, immaculate air. I believe in clean water, all of those things, but I don’t think we can destroy our country,” Trump said.

“If America does have the problem of climate change … it’s going to be of the nuclear form because we have incompetent politicians watching over us when it comes to nuclear weapons. That’s our big problem,” he added.

What do you make of Trump’s statements? Too harsh for the Pope?
