Papa won’t preach, seeks common ground with Trump

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (AP) — Pope Francis says he won’t try to convince U.S. President Donald Trump to soften his policies on immigration and the environment when they meet this month, but wants instead to find common ground and work for peace.

Francis said proselytizing isn’t his style – in politics or religion.

Speaking to reporters while traveling home Saturday from a trip to Portugal, Francis said he would say what he thinks sincerely to Trump and listen respectfully to what Trump has to say.

“I never make a judgment about a person without hearing him out,” the pope said.
