Pope singling out Trump for his wall is incredibly...stupid…and a blatant political statement

I agree, it was blatant politicking from a dodgy pontiff.

He had no right and no business saying anything of the sort, the whole thing seems surreal.

Obviously a fully paid-up member of the globalist clique.

It's just different political motives.

Trump is saying what he believes will best protect the interests of those living in the U.S. (Which is why he's popular even if breaking the implied rules about having to be "PC". He's not pandering to the interests of those in other countries, or things favorable to multi-national conglomerates that operate behind the scenes.) If it upsets some Mexicans, then tough. He's not campaigning for their presidency.

As where the Pope is saying anything that'll bring in more people to his particular sect of organized Christian religion. It's been losing a lot of people in recent history, so he's taking all comers and pandering to concerns that could earn him more followers. If it encourages people to break laws or causes economic and diplomatic stress, then so be it.

None is all that worse than the other if you think about it that way.

The pope says now that the poor are a passport to heaven. Maybe they are more like a passport for the rich oligarchs in the EU and the Vatican to get richer ...
