As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Meets Pope Who Once Said He Wasn’t a Christian

President Trump met with Pope Francis today. Looked a little awkward, and for good reason.

As you may remember, Trump got under Fancis’s skin last year when he suggested the Mexicans were using him, during a visit he was making to the country, to advance their opposition to a wall along the Mexican border.

The pope responded by saying Trump was not a Christian.

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and does not focus on building bridges, is not a Christian,” Francis said.

Trump quite properly responded that the Vatican should know who its friend are:

If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened. ISIS would have been eradicated unlike what is happening now with our all talk, no action politicians . . .

For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian and as President I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now, with our current President. No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith. [Mexican leaders] are using the Pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant.

Here is some video of Trump’s motorcade making its way through Rome. I can tell you, I’ve witnessed and been in plenty of motorcades covering presidents, and I’ve never seen anything like this in terms of its length and the small army of security that appears to be within it.

  1. The Holy Father should tend to the business of saving souls, not protecting or endorsing socialist ideals.
    His disgraceful interference into political matters and comments about another man’s religious faith is unbecoming to the Catholic ideal.

    • Francis often makes some very weird, clumsy statements as he ventures into the political realm. And I say that as a practicing Catholic. He’s no John Paul II, that’s for sure.
      He grew up under one of the most corrupt crony capitalist governments in the Western Hemisphere, and I suppose that informs his political statements to a great degree. He’s a student and practitioner of Liberation Theology, a toxic mix of Marxism and theology condemned by Popes John Paul II and Benedict. I do think he’s got a heart for the poor and disadvantaged, but his “solution” for their dilemma is incredibly confused, simplistic and counterproductive. It seems that he often publicly presents himself in a confusing manner which leaves too many questions about where he really stands on important issues. But that’s just me.

      Still, Trump was gracious about the meeting with Francis, commenting that he learned a lot about the need to strive for peace, etc. So that was nice.

    • I agree with your post, except for calling this man the “Holy Father”. By his words and deeds, he is anything but holy.

  2. Hi Keith, as I’ve shared earlier , I am Roman Catholic and witnessing Trump choose these countries, religions and Speaking opportunities at NATO and the Arab Alliance as his first trip outside the country, I am proud that Trump is truly showing by his Actions, not words, that he is serious about freedom, security and defeating evil in the world. The Pope was out of line with his remarks in Mexico and all of us wish we were flies on the wall during their discussion. Francis is surrounded by a very secure wall at the Vatican, why should we not have as much? A wall of strict vetting, common sense immigration policies and increased border patrol, Trump is already delivering on his campaign promise. The MSM will do all to destroy Trump’s goal of an Arab Israeli “Deal” and the defeat of ISIS and terror in the world, something the powerful they are lackeys for have never been able or never wanted to do.
    If our lame politicians actually protected the Constitution, as they promise to do when they take office, Sharia law will be stopped here.

  3. I find this Pope to be a disturbing person. A Globalist, Carbon tax lover, and all in on illegals flooding our county. Infallible I don’t believe so. Protecting Child molesting priests is important to him.

    I am not religious and this is just my opinion, right or wrong. This use to be OK in this country but not anymore. TV and the MSM tells us what we should believe.

  4. Love it that the ladies wear head coverings in the Vatican but didn’t in Muslim country.
    Poor Bergoglio, he’s only jubilant when he’s hosting abortionists, transvestites, communists and other anti-gospel persons.

  5. I left the Catholic Church years ago and am strictly agnostic now.

    Seeing who’s currently running things makes me glad I did.

    Frank needs to shut his trap and tend to his own business.

  6. As a Catholic, I was very disappointed in the Pope’s criticism of then Candidate Trump. I am especially troubled that he insinuating or describing Trumps’s actions as being Non-Christian. He sounded more like a Member of Congress than a Pope. I can’t stand when they pull this garbage (the distinguished honorable gentleman from Insert State is a blanking idiot). I had hoped the Pope was going to turn the spotlight on the Clergy and Hierarchy and he started off that way but faded.

    Hopefully, they were able to forgive and move on……

    On a side note……http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/24/wasserman-schultz-threatened-police-chief-for-gathering-evidence-on-her-it-staffers-alleged-crimes/

    When is Debbie Blather Mouth Shultz going to have ethics charges brought against her?? You think the Capital Police has the mother load? I hope it is secure and hidden away somewhere before a liberal judge orders the release.

  7. Sometimes I don’t believe The Pope is Christian, he cares more for the environment, Muslims and Illegals, than he does for Christians.

  8. The Pope says walls are bad! Guess he has not noticed the huge wall he lives behind at the Vatican. A typical liberal hypocrite.
