The United States President, Donald Trump has responded to Pope Francis, who earlier criticized him as not being a Christian.
In his response to the criticism while at a campaign rally in Kiawah Island, S.C., Trump warned the pontiff about the Islamic State, who he said: “their primary goal is to get to the Vatican.”
He said, “If and when the Vatican is attacked, the pope would only wish and have prayed that Donald Trump would have been elected President.”
It would be recalled that Trump had in his speech in the past, said, “I like the pope.”
However, during the Pope’s recent visit to the Mexican border, President Trump who condemned the visit described Pope Francis as a politician acting on the command of the Mexican government.
Trump, a Presbyterian, has been trying to make inroads among evangelical voters as he seeks reelection come November.
“I think that the pope is a very political person,” he said.
When asked about Trump’s comments, Francis laughed, saying, “Thank God he said I was a politician because Aristotle defined the human person as ‘animal politicus’.
“So at least I am a human person. As to whether I am a pawn, well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people.”
