Gloves off: Pope Francis v Donald Trump

It’s the heavyweight bout of the century.

Battlelines have been drawn between Pope Francis and Donald Trump after the Pontiff questioned Mr Trump’s christianity.

The Pope said the Republican presidential hopeful isn’t Christian because of his controversial views on immigration.

‘A person who thinks only about building walls… and not of building bridges, is not Christian,’ he said.

Mr Trump wants to build a border between the US and Mexico.

As expected, the billionaire businessman hit back, labelling the Pope’s comments ‘disgraceful’.

‘I’m proud to be a Christian, and as president I will not allow Christianity to be continually attacked,’ he said.
