Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has made a comparison between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and German Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, and said that there is no scenario in which Mexico would pay for a border wall, as Trump has suggested.
Peña Nieto accused Trump in an interview with Mexican daily Excelsior of offering "very easy, simple solutions to problems that are obviously not that easy to solve."
"And there have been episodes in human history, unfortunately, where these expressions of this strident rhetoric have only led to very ominous situations in the history of humanity," the Mexican president said. more >>
Businessman Donald Trump inched closer to becoming the Republican Party's presidential candidate Tuesday with a victory in the Nevada caucuses, his third win in four early-nominating contests.
Trump's victory, which was quickly called by broadcast networks and later affirmed by the state Republican Party, showed not only that he has undeniable momentum, but that he holds broad geographic appeal.
After coming second in Iowa, in America's midwest, he went on to capture primaries in New Hampshire in the northeast and South Carolina in the south. Nevada was the first western contest. more >>
A number of prominent Protestant leaders, including Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell Jr., are criticizing Pope Francis for implying yesterday that Donald Trump's intention to build a wall on the southern border is "not Christian."
After the Pontiff chastised Trump's desire to build the wall instead of "building bridges" in a conversation with reporters during his return flight home from Mexico, the real estate mogul responded Thursday by saying that it is "disgraceful" for a religious leader to question a person's faith.
Falwell, the president of Liberty University who endorsed Trump for president earlier this year, told CNN that the Pope's comments would cause America's first Catholic president, John F. Kennedy, to roll over in his grave. more >>
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. explained his support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by arguing that Jesus' advice was not intended for politicians.
In an interview with CNN on Thursday, the evangelical leader argued that "Jesus never intended to give instructions to political leaders on how to run a country."
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has reportedly tried to play down a disagreement between himself and Pope Francis on the subject of building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and is now saying that Francis is "doing a great job" as Vatican leader.
"I have a lot of respect for the Pope. He has a lot of personality and I think he's doing a very good job, he has a lot of energy," Trump said at a Thursday town hall meeting in Greenville, South Carolina, according to The Independent.
After Francis said on Wednesday that a person who "thinks only about buildings walls" is "not a Christian," Trump, who has promised to build a large wall on the Mexico-U.S. border to stop illegal immigration, fired back by calling the pope's comments "disgraceful." more >>
A website created to encourage Americans to move to a Canadian island if Donald Trump is elected president, is offering abortion access to entice immigrants.
Known as "Cape Breton If Donald Trump Wins," the site says that Americans who do not want Trump to become president should go ahead and make plans to move to Cape Breton, which is part of Nova Scotia.
"Start now, that way, on election day, you just hop on a bus to start your new life in Cape Breton, where women can get abortions, Muslim people can roam freely, and the only 'walls' are holding up the roofs of our extremely affordable houses," reads the website. more >>
