Pope Francis said that Donald Trump is not Christian if he builds walls. He was speaking to journalists during the return trip from Mexico. “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,” said Pope Francis.
Donald Trump, the Republican U.S. presidential candidate has called Pope Francis ‘political’ and said that he will build walls along US-Mexican border. Journalists were asking questions in response to the comments made by Trump.
Donald Trump had earlier criticized Pope Francis, telling that he has not understood the issue from both the sides. Mexican border, in his opinion, is a wall is needed in certain areas.
Vatican officials, on the other hand, opined that Pope did not mean to offend Donald Trump personally or he did not want to influence the voters.
