Steve Bannon Thinks Pope Francis is "Naive"

[German Section of Radio Vatican] US President Donald Trump will also meet the Pope during his visit to the G7 summit in Italy. This is what the Rome correspondent of the news site "Breitbart News" told  "Corriere della Sera". "Breitbart" had been headed by Steve Bannon until 2016, Trumps most important consultant. The past contact between Trump and the Pope was not a happy one, according to the correspondent Thomas Williams, a former member of the religious community "Legionaries of Christ".

 There was a "certain mistrust" between the Pope and Bannon. Bannon considers the pope "naive in the subjects of emigration and radical Islam," said the Breitbart correspondent. He also reported on the contacts between the American Cardinal Raymond L. Burke and Bannon. Both are not friends because they have different styles: "Burke is methodical, Bannon is impetuous," says Williams.

When Trump was to appoint a new American ambassador to the Holy See, things were unclear. According to the journalist, there was a very pious man in the conversation whom he, Williams, advised. The new US ambassador to the Holy See, even if he was a Catholic, must articulate the position of President Trump.

Thomas Williams is married in Rome to the daughter of the former US Ambassador to the Holy See Mary Ann Glendon.

The G7 summit will take place on 26 and 27 May in Taormina (Sicily). A few days ago, the Vatican described speculation about a possible meeting between Trump and Pope Francis as "premature".

I bet $20 Deacon Jorge Bergoglio would explode in anger if someone told him the greatest tragedy of the 20th century was the Soviet Union winning WW2.
He's not naive,he is judaizer/ multicultural communist.

As someone who visited Taormina on board a Navy cruiser, I would urge a few precautions on the part of Mr. Trump. Don't eat the cookies, turn down the coffee, and bring a food taster. Once upon a time, the Russian Patriarch visited JPI and didn't follow that advice. He died in the arms of the pope.

Your cautionary advice is correct, but I hear that in all cookie munching and beer tasting photo-ops the said goodies are supplied by secret service persons. The very mysterious death of that Russian Patriarch has been give the snow job treatment. That fact alone should raise our suspicions, but there doesn't appear to be a motive, at least one we can easily discern. Similarly for J-P I.

True, hew was given the last rites by the Holy Father himself, not bad for a schismatic heretic eastern Orthodox.

Anonymous said... motive? Just look at bergoglio himself. the late Fr. Malachi Martin warned for years it was the office of the papacy they were after, not the pope specifically, the were pushing for years behind the scenes to get their man in, finally they did and now we see the result. Also JP1 was going to turn the Church back, then there was the whole black friar bridge mess. The motives were very evident. As for this russian patriarch? I hear he was going to convert to Catholicism, not sure if that had anything to do with it or if it was other cold war intrique.
