Pope says Trump 'not Christian' in a sign of global concern

Pope Francis addresses the audience during a meeting with youths at the Jose Maria Morelos y Pavon stadium in MoreliaBy Emily Flitter NEWBERRY, S.C. (Reuters) – Pope Francis forcefully injected himself into the U.S. presidential campaign on Thursday, assailing Republican candidate Donald Trump’s views on U.S. immigration as “not Christian” in a sign of growing international concern at the billionaire businessman’s election prospects. Trump struck back. Francis told reporters during a free-wheeling conversation on his flight home from a visit to Mexico: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.” Trump has accused Mexico of sending rapists and drug-runners across the United States’ southern border and has vowed if elected president to build a wall to keep out immigrants who enter illegally.
