On the April 1 edition of Fox Business Network's Varney & Co., host Stuart Varney complained that "Pope's getting political again."
"Those who close borders, quote, ‘will become prisoners of the walls that they build,’" Varney said, quoting Pope Francis.
In response, Fox Business host Elizabeth MacDonald agrees and continues that the issue "has to be seen in the broader context of what the pope has been saying about Central America and South America."
His message “about social harmony in Venezuela and reconciliation in Nicaragua falls flat when you have militarized dictatorships doing systematically—systematically killing and imprisoning your own people,” she continued. “It's very weak in his response to communism and socialism in the other parts of the world. And he is weak on the border wall as well.”
