Pope Francis: Trump can't end DACA and consider himself "pro-life"

But it doesn't appear as if the president will include protecting undocumented youth from being deported to countries that their advocates say could put them in harm's way in his definition of "pro-life".

"[President Trump] presents himself as a pro-life man", Francis said.

Last November, the Pope warned leaders not to take in more immigrants than they could handle, which included the key aspect of "integration".

What they were doing, he said, was saying, "This is my treasure. And a culture that does not develop in relation with another culture, that is risky", he said. He suggested that countries might be only be able to accept a certain number of migrants before there is a danger of "non-integration".

Trump announced September 5 that he was phasing out the program; his decision was strongly criticized by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. I totally respect the pope, and I totally respect the Catholic bishops and cardinals on doctrine.

He was responding to a question about whether political leaders should be held morally responsible for future effects on the planet, as his papal charter plane flew over some of the areas devastated by recent hurricanes, which continue to affect the US, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Mark Ruffalo said Trump's decision was "a cowardly act" and called Trump's team "a cruel, vindictive and heartless administration intent on tearing at the very fabric of the American dream". The Trump decision "is certainly not Christian", he said. "They are very clear".

Hoo boy, it looks like the world's biggest feud is getting a new chapter as Pope Francis dropped some bars on U.S. President Donald Trump during a press conference aboard Pope Force One on Sunday.

Because I heard the USA president speak.

"I was punched!" Pope Francis quipped. However, he said, "uprooting young people from their families is not something that will bear fruit".

McCain's afternoon interview with the cable news network followed a dig at the president from Pope Francis, who disagreed with President Trump's decision in June to withdraw the USA from the Paris climate agreement signed by 195 United Nations states. Trump directed Congress to plan a legislative solution that would "work out very well" for the DACA recipients, also known as "Dreamers".
