This year, Pope Francis hasn’t shied away from trashing the president’s horrid policies and belief system. Although, he usually avoids saying Trump by name since he’s disgusted by him to the point that he doesn’t want to accept that he is his fellow man.
When the two world leaders met this year in Italy, the look on the Pope’s face said it all.
The Pope is one of the millions of people around the world who disagreed with Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In his Christmas address, the Pope condemned Trump.
Pope Francis said he is praying for the “peaceful coexistence of two states within mutually agreed and internationally recognized borders.”
He went on:
“We see Jesus in the children of the Middle East who continue to suffer because of growing tensions between Israelis and Palestinians. On this festive day, let us ask the Lord for peace for Jerusalem and for all the Holy Land. Let us pray that the will to resume dialogue may prevail between the parties and that a negotiated solution can finally be reached.”
