Pope Francis “Warns Of Trump Evil Populism”
Pope Francis the most Populism Pope ever warns of “Trump Evil Populism”
Pope Francis told German newspaper Die Zeit on Thursday “populism is evil and ends badly as the past century showed.”
The pope went on to say, “I don’t see myself as anything special… I’m a sinner, I’m fallible.”
During his first major interview with the German newspaper, Pope Francis was asked whether he had ever experienced any moments in which he doubted the existence of God, to which he responded, “I, too, know moments of emptiness.”
Pope Francis has often been a staunch critic of President Trump, last month the pope repeated his appeal for people to build bridges instead of walls, in response to the massive backlash of the Trump administration attempts to impose a travel ban on seven mostly Muslim countries.
