US President, Donald Trump has replied Pope Francis, who had criticized him, describing him as non-Christian.

Trump responded to the criticism at a campaign rally in Kiawah Island, S.C. He warned the pontiff about the Islamic State, who he said: “their primary goal is to get to the Vatican.”

“If and when the Vatican is attacked,” he said, “the pope would only wish and have prayed that Donald Trump would have been elected President.”

The President earlier in his speech had said, “I like the pope.”

The catholic religious leader Pope Francis on Wednesday said in an interview that US President Donald Trump “is not Christian.”

“I think that the pope is a very political person,” Trump said.

When asked about Trump’s comments, Pope Francis laughed, and said, “Thank God he said I was a politician because Aristotle defined the human person as ‘animal politicus’.

“So at least I am a human person. As to whether I am a pawn, well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people.”
