Maybe he should be condemning the socialist countries that people are fleeing from?

Maybe he shouldn't. He's our POTUS, not theirs.

No, Trump and his supporters do not have a valid point.

One can approach the piazza in front of St Peters without any barriers or border crossing or really any visible sign at all that you are now in the Vatican. You can walk all over the piazza and through the colonnades. There are lines for the museums and the basilica and I believe an entrance fee is requred for the museums.

There are so many homeless that sleep there that Pope Francis opened, or plans to open, a homeless shelter.

The Vatican itself is by invitation only. But then, I doubt one can enter Trump's apartments without an invitation either.

Are Trump supporters really this gullible? Even those who are not that well traveled, could certainly Google it.

Geez Louise.

I respect Pope Francis, just like I respect the right of a sovereign nation like the U.S. to protect its citizens and decide in their best interests. Even Hillary has supported building physical barriers to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in, but it is now only an uproar when Trump wants to build a wall.

Didn't Trump get into a beef with Pope Francis early on?
