Donald Trump was asked by Chris Cuomo to give his reaction to the Pope, who will be visiting the U.S. in the next month. Cuomo was particularly interested in Trump’s reaction to the Pontiff’s politicalization of his position, as well as his arguments that reckless capitalism can cause corruption.
For some reason, Trump responded by bringing up the threats made by ISIS earlier this year to take over Vatican City.
“ISIS wants to get you,” Trump said. “They better hope that capitalism works. It is the only thing we have right now. It is a great thing when it works properly.”
Trump gave his doubts that the Pope is not actually anti-capitalist, and that America was not the problem. He went on to say that between measures like regulations and the Dodd-Frank Act, America is a non-competitive nation that must open itself to “great capitalism.”
