During a press conference Sunday aboard the papal plane from Colombia to Rome, Pope Francis took a swipe at President Trump over the weekend for moving to wind down the Obama-era program shielding some young illegal immigrants from deportation, suggesting the decision is not “pro-life.”
Details reveal that during an interview with reporters, Pope Francis stated that “history will judge” those who refuse to accept the science of climate change, adding how, “If someone is doubtful that [climate change] is true, they should ask scientists.” Pope Francis also went on to explain how these were not “opinions made on the fly,” adding how “they are very clear.”
But he didn’t end there, as he went on to further add that both politicians as well as private citizens have a “moral responsibility” to act, and taking in mind the fact that the Pope is a huge supporter of the Paris climate agreement which is a pledge be almost 200 countries to reduce emissions, it is clear that he would trash the POTUS as soon as he got the opportunity. He also didn’t miss out but to say he hoped that Mr. Trump would reconsider his decision to end DACA.
The Pope ended his speech saying, “If we don’t turn back, we will go down.”
