People are weighing in all over social media and the media in general after he made comments about Trump not being a real Christian because he wants to build a wall and deport illegal immigrants (though he also wants to set up a return program).
Most people want the Pope to shut up and pray. Many believe he needs to stay out of politics and others say he has a right to state his opinion. The Pope appears to be losing in the Trump vs. Pope fiasco however.
The Pope has a supporter in THE DAILY NEWS though. They are trying to increase their value beyond the one dollar they tried to sell the paper for – and failed!

REVEREND FRANKLIN GRAHAM
The Rev. Franklin Graham Thursday suggested that Pope Francis “build a bridge” to Republican front-runner Donald Trump because “who knows where he may be this time next year.”
“I agree that, as Christians, we should try to build bridges with everyone that we possibly can,” Graham wrote in a post on Facebook. “But that doesn’t mean that we should compromise our national security.”
Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his show Thursday that Pope Francis should be telling illegal immigrants to return home but he won’t because he wants people from socialist countries to stay here and convert the country.
Father Morris was on Hannity’s radio show and said Donald Trump does good things for aliens beyond building walls and the Pope isn’t aware of that. Hmmm…. He admitted he wishes the Pope hadn’t said this – his stomach was a little queasy when he heard it.
The Catholic League President Bill Donohue said that both the Pope and Trump are right but the Pope just didn’t have the right information and the question was a set up.

JERRY FALWELL JR
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the nation’s only Catholic president, would be “rolling over in his grave right now” if he heard Pope Francis’ contention that GOP presidential Donald Trump is “not Christian” because of his positions on immigration and building a wall along the Mexican border, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. said Thursday.
“I’ve gotten to know Donald Trump very well over the last four years,” Falwell, who is the son of famed evangelist Jerry Falwell, told CNN’s “Legal View With Ashleigh Banfield” program.
Laura Wilkerson, whose son was tortured to death by an illegal alien, explained to Breitbart that she cast her early ballot today for GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump. She added that the “Pope doesn’t care about me.”
DIAMOND AND SILK
Diamond and Silk are baffled!
Trump’s top aide said The Vatican is completely “surrounded by walls”.

Joe Walsh says the Pope handed Trump the nomination. [Most of us know that all criticisms against Trump translate into increased poll numbers for Trump.]

I don’t know who this lady is but her response is interesting.
Pope questions Trump’s faith & not Obama’s -who sat in a church for 20 yrs “damning America” & told “Christians to get off high horse”?
