On Saturday, Pope Francis urged world leaders to do more for the refugee crisis and condemned the use of walls to keep refugees out.
The pope was speaking at the World Meeting of Popular Movements — a meeting at the Vatican that brings together the poor, unemployed and other people at the margins of society.
While Francis didn't mention the upcoming U.S. election, or any particular politician or country by name, many are linking his statements to Donald Trump's threats to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border.
