Pope Francis: If Trump is 'pro-life' he wouldn't end DACA

Already the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has denounced Trump's decision to end the DACA program, calling it "reprehensible" and placing "unnecessary fear for DACA youth and their families".

Trump responded that it was "disgraceful" for the pope to question his faith. However, he said, "uprooting young people from their families is not something that will bear fruit".

He bruised his cheekbone and cut his left eyebrow with blood staining his white cassock following the incident. Pope Francis asked reporters. "I think what I see there is a fight for political interests".

The itinerary of Pope Francis was briefly halted after he reportedly injured himself while traveling to Cartagena, Colombia, when he hit his head against the vehicle (popemobile) in which he was traveling.

"Those who deny it (climate change) should go to the scientists and ask them". "They speak very clearly, scientists are precise".

The Pope is a strong supporter of the Paris climate agreement, a pledge by nearly 200 countries to reduce emissions linked to climate change.

"I do not know if three years is right or not, but if we do not turn back, it is true that we will go down", said the pope. "We can see the effects of climate change and scientists clearly say what path we should follow", he added, referring to the scientific consensus that global warming is caused by human activity such as burning fossil fuels. "All of us have a. moral responsibility".

"We pray to fulfil the theme of this visit: "Let us take the first step!' And may this first step be in a common direction". 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. "And history will judge their decisions".

"We could ask the pope to intervene directly for dialogue", said Venezuelan housewife Nancy Pugliese, 35, who attended Francis's visit in Cartagena. "He is not able to ask for forgiveness", the Pope said, and for this reason, it is very hard to help someone who is corrupt. And who robs them of hope?

The Pope's visit to Medellin began so wet and so foggy that he was forced to travel the 30 miles from Rionegro airport by vehicle rather than helicopter.

What they were doing, he said, was saying, "This is my treasure".
