We all knew that Pope Francis doesn’t quite agree with President Donald Trump and his ideas, but this time he launched a direct assault on our leader. The comments came after Hurricane Harvey struck Texas. Hurricane Irma is still present, and it’s the deadliest storm America has ever seen. According to Pope Francis, President Trump is responsible for the disaster. So, is the pope trying to say that President Trump has the power to control nature? That’s hilarious!
President Trump has specific ideas for our country, and he knows what works best for the well-being of us all. He exclude the US from the Paris climate agreement, and the pope believes that this decision actually brought the hurricanes over the Atlantic Ocean.
Pope Francis claims that history will judge those who don’t cope with the science of climate change, and he was referring to President Trump. “If someone is doubtful that [climate change] is true, they should ask scientists. These are not opinions made on the fly. They are very clear. Then each person can decide and history will judge the decisions,” the pope said.
It’s more than clear that the Pope supports the Paris climate agreement along with 200 other countries. They all believe that the reduction of emissions will save the planet. President Trump pulled our country out of the agreement at the beginning of this summer. Vatican officials claimed that this decision was nothing but a “slap in the face” to the Pope and Vatican.
We are all concerned about the current situation in our country, but nature can’t be controlled. Irma threatens to wipe out Florida, and Texans are still dealing with the deadly floods. This is the first time our country deals with two Category 4 hurricanes in a single season. “If we don’t turn back, we will go down,” the pope said.
Let’s not forget that Pope Francis also disapproves the President’s decision to end the DACA program.
What do you think about the comments Pope Francis made? Do you think President Donald Trump will come out with a statement? Will he respond to the Pope’s provocation?
