Pope Francis Attacks President Trump on Climate

Pope Francis Attacks President Trump on Climate

The pope said it is important for young people to have their "roots".

Pope Francis has said previously that "integration" refers to a country's ability to educate and house migrants, as well as the strength of the job market to employ them.

Francis urged climate change deniers to consult scientists who have proved the phenomenon is real. "A stubborn [animal] that does not see", the pope reportedly said. And we have a responsibility - all of us. "They [world leaders] decide and history will judge those decisions".

His words were direct, but hardly new.

Pope Francis' comments came during a flight from Colombia to Rome, which passed over areas of the Caribbean left devastated by Hurricane Irma.

The defensive star is one of the best players in the National Football League but a contract dispute with his team. Playing this season under his rookie contract is a fairly enormous risk, given that kind of earning potential.

The Category 4 storm made landfall Sunday morning in Florida, where it is expected to move up the western coast of the state. The person who posted the video later added an update to her original post that "Long Island has the all clear".

He pushed the issue of climate change during his meeting with the USA leader by handing Trump a copy of his science-laden encyclical about the moral responsibility to protect the environment.

"'If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS's ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president", Trump added in the statement. "They are very clear", he said.

The pope also addressed questions about climate change, saying that those who deny its reality should listen to scientists, who "speak very clearly".

The law is meant to guide people in doing good and it is not to be ignored, the pope said. But he maintained that "removing young people from their families is not a thing that bears good fruit, neither for the young person nor the family". Noting that the policy was crafted by the executive branch, rather than through the legislature, the Pope said there may be hope that it could be considered anew. In the end, they are the ones who will determine whether Colombia truly has peace after 52 years of civil war.

"Here in Colombia and in the world, millions of people are still being sold as slaves; they either beg for some expressions of humanity, moments of tenderness, or they flee by sea or land because they have lost everything, primarily their dignity and their rights", he added. The Pope was riding through the streets of Cartagena greeting the faithful, when the Popemobile stopped short - causing the left side of the Pope's face to make contact with, according to Reuters, a vertical bar on the vehicle's window. He spoke to me of troubles they are having, Francis said, "because so many of them are coming that there isn't time to settle them, find school, lodging, work, learn the language".
