The Pope released his weekly statement from the Vatican where he alluded to Trump’s policy on wanting to divide Mexico and the U.S. by building a wall. 

“In the social and civil context as well, I appeal not to create walls, but to build bridges,” he reported said without specifically mentioning Trump. “To not respond to evil with evil. To defeat evil with good, the offense with forgiveness. A Christian would never say ‘you will pay for that.’ Never… That is not a Christian gesture. An offense you overcome with forgiveness. To live in peace with everyone.”

This isn’t the first time that Pope Francis indirectly spoke about Trump. In February 2015, the Pope questioned Trump’s Christianity after he first announced his plans to build a wall. 

"A person who thinks only about building walls — wherever they may be — and not building bridges, is not Christian… I'd just say that this man is not Christian if he said it this way,” he told The AP

Trump was quick to come after the religious leader. 

"For a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. No leader, especially a religious leader, has the right to question another man's religion or faith."
