Pope Francis has compared President Donald Trump to the murderous King Herod because he separates families at the border, according to a Jesuit journal.

However, Pope Francis failed to point out that child detention rates were the highest in the world under former President Obama. A UN study recently showed the U.S. had the “world’s highest rate of children in detention” under President Obama.

Speaking with Jesuits during a recent visit to Thailand, Pope Francis minced no words in his condemnation of the U.S. president and his administration, suggesting that like a modern-day Herod, Mr. Trump separates families at the border while allowing drugs to freely flow into the country.

King Herod massacred innocent children in ancient Palestine while trying to kill the baby Jesus.

“In other parts there are walls that even separate children from parents. Herod comes to mind,” Francis said. “Yet for drugs, there’s no wall to keep them out.”

“The phenomenon of migration is compounded by war, hunger and a ‘defensive mindset,’ which makes us in a state of fear believe that you can defend yourself only by strengthening borders. At the same time, there is exploitation.”

In this Q&A session, the pontiff also claimed that populism is “gaining strength” in Europe.

“I must admit that I am shocked by some of the narratives I hear in Europe about borders,” the pope said. “Populism is gaining strength.”

“The phenomenon of refugees has always existed, but today it is better known because of social differences, hunger, political tensions and especially war. For these reasons, migratory movements are intensifying,” he said.

“What is the answer the world gives? The policy of waste,” he continued. “Refugees are waste material. The Mediterranean has been turned into a cemetery. The notorious cruelty of some detention centers in Libya touches my heart.”

“The Christian tradition has a rich evangelical experience in dealing with the problem of refugees. We also remember the importance of welcoming the foreigner as the Old Testament teaches us,” he said.

  1. The law breaking parents need to be slammed for putting their kids thru the danger of crossing the border with smugglers. that is if the kids parents are really their parents and not pimps. many of these kids are destined for sex

  2. 2 Edras 7:78 Now, concerning death, the teaching is: When the decisive decree has gone forth from the Most High that a man shall die, as the spirit leaves the body to return again to him who gave it, first of all it adores the glory of the Most High. 79 And if it is one of those who have shown scorn and have not kept the way of the Most High, and who have despised his law, and who have hated those who fear Yahweh 80 such spirits shall not enter into habitations, but shall immediately wander about in torments, ever grieving and sad, in seven ways.

  3. He isnt a real pope anyway, He is a deep state plant forced in by obumma, soros, and their bum buddies. A bullet through his skull is needed.

  4. This FAKE Pope was put in place to destroy the Catholic Church (by Soros, Hussein, HRC) and waiting for Putin to throw him in prison with the Interpol Warrant on his head.

  5. This Pope has better clean out his own churches of pedophile priests before getting involved in our politics. If he wants to mingle Church & State affairs, then let the churches be taxed….no more tax-free status.
