RNC's Priebus: Pope in No Position to Judge Someone's Faith

Fox News' "America's Newsroom"

By    |   Friday, 19 Feb 2016 01:46 PM

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Friday that while he has "total respect and admiration" for Pope Francis, he does not believe that the pontiff should have made comments about Donald Trump's Christian beliefs, as nobody is "really in the position to knowingly judge someone's faith."

"That's a question I can't win on," he told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" host Martha MacCallum, when asked his opinion on the pope's comments on Thursday that Trump's stance on immigration and building a wall could mean that the real estate mogul and GOP presidential front-runner is "not Christian."

"That is really between everyone and God," Priebus said. "Really, that is something that only God knows. People can, can obviously make judgments but only God really knows the answer to those sorts of questions."

On Friday, a Vatican spokesman said the pope often advocates building bridges, not walls, and that he wasn't targeting Trump or trying to imply how voters should cast their ballots with his comments on faith.
