In only 100 days in Office, President Trump has been one of the most divisive Presidents in history. He also already ordered military strikes, such as the Tomahawk strike against a Syrian airbase.
He was also the first President to drop a MOAB bomb, which is the most destructive non-nuclear weapon the U.S has, in Afghanistan. It is nicknamed the “Mother of all Bombs.”
President Trump is proud of these acts of war. In fact, Trump told sources,
“We are so proud of our military. It was another successful event. Everybody knows exactly what happened. What I do, is I authorize my military. We have given them total authorization. Frankly, that’s why they’ve been so successful lately.”
Pope Francis slammed Trump when he heard about the bomb dropping on Afghanistan,
“I was ashamed when I heard the name. A mother gives life and this one gives death, and we call this device a mother. What is happening?”
This is not the first time that Pope Francis has spoken out against Trump. In February of 2016, the Pope replied to a question from the press about then candidate Trump’s anti-immigrant campaign rhetoric, saying:
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that.”
Whoa! It sure sounds like Pope Francis is pretty much against everything President Trump stands for. Why won’t Trump listen to the Pope? Do you agree with Pope Francis about Trump?
