Republican frontrunner Donald Trump was once again the main target of two influential world powers.
Earlier this week Barack Obama declared that Trump would not be president. At an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meeting on Tuesday, he said, "I continue to believe that Mr. Trump will not be president."
The religious leader, Pope Francis, decided that he should weigh in as well and declared that Trump was not a Christian.
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” Francis said when a reporter asked him about Mr. Trump on the papal airliner as he returned to Rome after his six-day visit to Mexico.
Trump fired back at the pair on Thursday by saying:
The Mexican government and its leadership has made many disparaging remarks about me to the Pope, because they want to continue to rip off the United States, both on trade and at the border, and they understand I am totally wise to them. The Pope only heard one side of the story - he didn’t see the crime, the drug trafficking and the negative economic impact the current policies have on the United States. He doesn’t see how Mexican leadership is outsmarting President Obama and our leadership in every aspect of negotiation.
