If any person or organisation verbally attacks Donald J Trump, GOP hopeful and could-be contender for the job of next president of the USA, he lashes out but what will he do now he has been criticised by Pope Francis?
Thursday the Pope has questioned Donald Trump's Christianity after Trump had vowed to build a wall between the USA and Mexico if he were to become the next POTUS.
Pope Francis said "a person who thinks only about building walls... and not of building bridges, is not Christian" and who could in truth disagree with that.
Well of course Mr Trump could.
Trump was quick to fight back blaming Mexico for the Pope's comments and calling them disgraceful; it seems the truth can hurt any person even a big mouth with a huge bank account such as Donald Trump.
It has been a day for home truths for Trump starting with the current POTUS Barack Obama. Mr Obama has said "I don't think Donald Trump will be President" and many people both sides of the pond will probably add "hope you are right."
Obama cast doubts on Trump's presidential abilities and confirmed faith in the American people when he said at a California press conference "I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president. ”And the reason is that I have a lot of faith in the American people. Being president is a serious job. It's not hosting a talk show, or a reality show." He went on: "It's not promotion, it's not marketing. It's hard. And a lot of people count on us getting it right."
Trump has shown that he has a lot of business acumen but you also have to bear in mind he came into a privileged world of family wealth and has pulled the bankruptcy card more than once.
Will the opinion of Barack Obama and Pope Francis carry any sway with voters? You can bet your bottom dollar they will. Obama is now a seasoned politician and experienced president and his words will be significant to many.
Those that could not careless what Obama says may feel differently about the Pope. Some states of the UK remain bible thumpers first-class and the Pope has influence not just among catholic communities.
Trump had this to say about Pope Francis;
Addressing a rally in South Carolina, Mr Trump responded to the Pope's comments.
Yes Mr Obama we hope you are right and Trump does not become the next POTUS.
