Trump, Pope Talk Christian Persecution as Islamic State Vows More Attacks After Manchester

by EDWIN MORA25 May 2017U.S. President Donald Trump and Pope Francis discussed “the protection of Christian communities” in the Vatican soon after the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), in claiming responsibility for the recent massacre in England, threatened “more severe” attacks against “worshippers of the Cross and their allies.”


Moreover, the two men reportedly discussed international affairs, “with particular reference to the situation in the Middle East and the protection of Christian communities.”
The United States and the United Nations have determined that ISIS has committed genocide against Christians and other ethnoreligious minorities in the Middle East.
“We had a fantastic meeting,” declared President Trump, referring to his Vatican visit.
The White House also released a statement about the meeting which also involved Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin.
“In their meetings, the President focused on how the United States, the Holy See, and the international community can work together to combat terrorism,” notes the White House.
“The Pope and the President discussed how religious communities can combat human suffering in crisis regions, such as Syria, Libya, and ISIS-controlled territory,” it adds. “The President affirmed that the United States and the Holy See share many fundamental values and seek to engage globally to promote human rights, combat human suffering, and protect religious freedom.”
In an exclusive interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), President Trump vowed to “help” and protect the Christian minority in the Middle East, noting that “they’ve been horribly treated.”
