During a Feb. 18, 2016 in-flight press conference, Reuters reporter Philip Pullella asked the Pope to respond to Donald Trump’s immigration stand.
Pope Francis answered: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel.”

“Jesus Christ Is The Only Solution For Our World” – Mike Pompeo Trump’s New CIA Director

“Jesus Christ Is The Only Solution For Our World” – Mike Pompeo Trump’s New CIA Director

Trump’s CIA Director Mike Pompeo

Trump’s new CIA Director Mike Pompeo, an evangelical Christian, and a well-respected figure in the national security community. He is also an army veteran, and a staunch pro-life advocate. 

Two years ago, Pompeo gave a Church speech where he said Muslims who think Islam is “the only way” needed to be dealt with. “This threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer,” Pompeo told the church-goers, according to Press TV.
“These folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe Christians from the face of the earth,” he added. “They abhor Christians,” he said of a small minority among Muslims.
Pompeo passionately urged believers to “pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ is our savior and is truly the only solution for our world.”
Following the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, Pompeo took to the House floor to call on Muslim leaders to denounce acts of terrorism committed in the name of Islam. “It’s been just under two months since the attacks in Boston, and in those intervening weeks, the silence of Muslim leaders has been deafening,” he said.
Failing to condemn such attacks, he asserted, makes Muslim leaders “potentially complicit” in the attacks. “When the most devastating terrorist attacks on America in the last 20 years come overwhelmingly from people of a single faith and are performed in the name of that faith, a special obligation falls on those that are the leaders of that faith,” he said.
Trump visited the CIA headquarters at the weekend and made it clear that he is a big advocate of the intelligence agency, and his new CIA chief Pompeo. “There is nobody that feels stronger about the intelligence community and the CIA than Donald Trump,” the new President said. 
Trump called Pompeo a “total star” and a “gem” and said he may have been his most important Cabinet pick. “I met Mike Pompeo, and it was the only guy I met. I didn’t want to meet anybody else. I said, cancel everybody else. Cancel,” Trump said of his decision to nominate Pompeo.
Pompeo is also a shrewd businessman, starting out at Thayer Aerospace, selling it up and moving on to Sentry International, which makes equipment for oilfields. Pompeo has also voted to defund Planned Parenthood, calling it the “largest commercial provider of abortions in the United States.” 
President Trump said in a statement that he was proud to nominate Pompeo as director of the CIA. “He has served our country with honor and spent his life fighting for the security of our citizens.” The President continued, “He will be a brilliant and unrelenting leader for our intelligence community to ensure the safety of Americans and our allies.”
Pompeo said he was truly honored by the opportunity to serve and work alongside Trump “to keep America safe.”
“I also look forward to working with America’s intelligence warriors, who do so much to protect Americans each and every day.”
