Donald Trump included Pope Francis, former First Lady Hillary Clinton, and Jeb Bush in his latest string of opinions. His words about the Pope proved especially scary.
Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has been known for his unapologetic words, mostly starting with his notorious statement about Mexican immigrants. That drew plenty of attention from across the entertainment industry’s Latino element, such as Pitbull, Salma Hayek and more. When Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly had some words with Donald, neither would back down, and Kelly ended up taking a vacation suspiciously soon after.
Now Trump seems to be taking on his opponents, as well as a renowned religious authority. It appears giving out Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number in a speech wasn’t enough. After CNN‘s Chris Cuomo told Donald Trump that Pope Francis feels capitalism is a “real avenue to greed,” he had some choice words for the religious leader.
“I’d say ISIS wants to get you. You know that ISIS wants to go in and take over the Vatican? You have heard that. You know, that’s a dream of theirs, to go into Italy.
“I’m gonna have to scare the Pope because it’s the only thing. The Pope, I hope, can only be scared by God. But the truth is – you know, if you look at what’s going on – they better hope that capitalism works, because it’s the only thing we have right now. And it’s a great thing when it works properly.”
After Donald Trump’s word about the Pope, he also mentioned that Hillary Clinton is not his focus. He told Cuomo what he believes is going to be Hillary Clinton‘s greatest obstacle.
“I think that Hillary’s going to have a hard time being in the election based on what’s going on with the emails, the servers, maybe even the speeches. I think it’s going to be a very hard thing for her to overcome.”
While it wasn’t as brutal as what Donald Trump said about Pope Francis, Donald also had something to say about Jeb Bush. He apparently had an issue with Bush’s stance on women’s health issues.

Jeb Bush had said he’s “not sure we need half a billion dollars for women’s health issues,” and Trump feels it’s a shame.
“When I [watched] Jeb Bush a week ago not wanting to fund the women’s health issues … I thought it was terrible … how do you misspeak about something like that?
“They said, you know, ‘The one thing you should do is talk a little bit about women’s health issues, because you’re so good on it … You know about it. And you cherish women. You want to protect women’…. I will protect women more than anybody.”
This contrasts greatly with Trump’s discount of Megyn Kelly‘s words due to alleged feminine health issues. It is unknown if he was aware of the possible contradiction.
What do you think about Donald Trump’s words for Pope Francis, Hillary Clinton, and Jeb Bush?
