Pope's Confidants Criticize Some Religious Donald Trump Supporters

Two close confidants of Pope Francis penned an article in a Vatican-reviewed  journal strongly criticizing some religious American voters who support President Donald Trump. The authors criticized American evangelicals and Catholics for becoming a “community of combatants” who seek to impose a “xenophobic and Islamophobic vision that wants walls and purifying deportations.” They write that these views are opposed to those of Pope Francis, who urges, “inclusion, peace, encounter and bridges.”
