After Pope Francis said Thursday that Donald Trump is “not Christian” if he intends to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border, Trump fired back, saying it is “disgraceful” for a religious leader to question a person’s faith.

Trump proposed that if elected he will build a wall along the Mexican border from Texas to California. He has also promised to deport 11 million people who are in the country illegally.

Trump was reacting to the Pope’s comment, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.” It seems to be a thinly veiled attack against Trump, who wants a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Trump went off … “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian.” Trump believes the Mexican leaders with whom the Pope just met have poisoned him with one-sided views on immigration, adding, “They are using the Pope as a pawn.” And Trump says this … “If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’ ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened.” h/t tmz
