From the April 1 edition of Fox Business' Varney & Co.:

STUART VARNEY (HOST): Pope Francis taking a shot at President Trump, saying that those who close borders, quote, “will become prisoners of the walls that they build.” Liz? Pope's getting political again. 

ELIZABETH MACDONALD (FOX BUSINESS HOST): Yeah, he's getting political again and you know what the issue is, has to be seen in the broader context of what the pope has been saying about Central America and South America. 20 former presidents of these countries said to the pope, “your 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.” So when you see the pope making statements about a border wall, it has to be taken in the context of how the pope approaches all of Central America and South America. 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.
