Pope raps Trump, dubia cardinals, in new interview
June 20, 2018
CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis sharply criticized President Donald Trump’s immigration policies in a new interview with the Reuters news service. The Pontiff said that he sided with the US bishops in their criticism of Trump, adding that “populism is not the solution.” He also questioned Trump’s policies regarding Cuba and climate change. On other questions, the Pope said that he is “not even thinking about” resignation, that he expected to accept the resignations of more Chilean bishops, and that the cardinals who presented the dubia had behaved in a way “that is, let’s say, not ecclesial, but we all make mistakes.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

"Francis said he had heard about the cardinals’ letter criticizing him “from the newspapers ... a way of doing things that is, let’s say, not ecclesial, but we all make mistakes”." He HEARD about the letter but didn't have the courtesy to read it? And is the Pope admitting that HE made a mistake?
