Pope Francis Congratulated US Preseident-Elect, Donald Trump
The Vatican’s highest ranking diplomat, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, congratulated Trump and said the Catholic leadership was praying “that God enlightens him and supports him in the service of his country of course, but also in the service of well-being and peace in the world.”

Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, said he hoped Trump would modify the hardline immigration policy he advocated in his campaign rhetoric, but noted that “from what I have heard Donald Trump has already expressed himself in terms of a leader.”

Pope Francis provoked a political storm in February returning from a visit to Mexico when he said Trump was “not Christian” for pledging to build a border wall between the US and Mexico.
