>> Pope Francis on Saturday, warning against what he called a virus of polarization and hostility in the world.>>
> The comments were made during a ceremony at Saint Peter's Basilica in Vatican City to induct new cardinals. They come 11 days after Donald Trump was elected president, booing anti-immigrant parties in Europe and elsewhere.
While not naming any country, Pope Francis appeared to refer to anti immigrant, and anti muslim attitudes that surfaced during the US presidential campaign. The justice department said Friday it is investigating increasing reports of intimidation and harassment across the US since the election. Earlier this year when asked about the plan by Trump to build a wall to keep Mexicans from entering the US, the Pope caused a stir by saying that anyone advocating building walls and not bridges, was not a christian.
