World leaders swipe at Trump

From Pope Francis to Angela Merkel, here are five leaders that had strong words for Trump and his policies in 2019.

5 world leaders who took verbal jabs at President Trump in 2019

Pope Francis

On Christmas, the pontiff called out the “walls of indifference” that prevent immigrants from seeking a better life. “May the Son of God, come down to earth from heaven, protect and sustain all those who, due to these and other injustices, are forced to emigrate in the hope of a secure life. It is injustice that makes them cross deserts and seas that become cemeteries. It is injustice that forces them to endure unspeakable forms of abuse, enslavement of every kind and torture in inhumane detention camps. It is injustice that turns them away from places where they might have hope for a dignified life, but instead find themselves before walls of indifference.”

Justin Trudeau

The Canadian prime minister was caught on tape discussing Trump with other world leaders and laughing at his expense. “Is that why you were late? He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference at the top. Oh yeah yeah yeah! 40 minutes. He announced…Fake news media?”

Angela Merkel

The German chancellor blasted the Trump administration — with Ivanka Trump sitting in the audience. “Apparently, the American secretary of trade says that German cars are a threat to America’s national security. We’re proud of our automotive industry and I think we can be. We’re proud of our cars. They are built in the United States of America, South Carolina is one of the largest — it’s actually the largest BMW plant. Not in Bavaria.”

Wang Yi

The Chinese foreign minister blasted Trump’s trade war at the U.N. General Assembly. “Erecting walls will not resolve global challenges and blaming others for one’s own problems does not work. The lessons of the Great Depression should not be forgotten. Tariffs and provocation of trade disputes, which upset global industrial and supply chains, serve to undermine the multilateral trade regime and global economic and trade order. They may even plunge the world into recession.”

Sauli Niinistö

The Finnish president's subtle comments implied that America’s democracy might be in trouble. “Mr. President, you have here a great democracy. Keep it going on.”

    Nobody cares about what a child molester has to say!! Not to mention, he is not any closer to God, nor more holy, then any of us🙄. The Pope is a joke and all Catholics idolize him which goes against the very book they worship

    For years the Vatican covered for the sexual abuse of their priests. It wasn't a few isolated cases but an epidemic. When they knew there was a problem they moved them to a new church. Typical how they handle world problems, move them to someone else. Sure people go through hardships for better lives. Duh, we went through a revolution to make our lives better. They have problems with their Governments vote them out or uprise and throw them out. Whatever we don't want the Pope to be telling us what to do.

    Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Romans 13:1-4 I do not say anything against another country's leaders, because I am not ruled by them.
