Cardinal Parolin explains where the Vatican can collaborate with Trump


The Vatican is once again reaching out to Donald Trump. Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican's number two, thinks it's time to give the new president the benefit of the doubt before making rash judgments against him.

Vatican Secretary of State
"I think we should give the president time to make whatever decisions he deems appropriate. Personally, I already like the fact that he presented himself the president of everyone, so he left behind, at least in his intentions, all the negative words he said while campaigning. Now we will see what he will do and then we will comment."

The cardinal thinks that today's world has many conflicts, and the U.S. should continue to use its voice to facilitate international dialogue. In addition, he made a list of the first issues in which they are willing to collaborate on with Donald Trump

Vatican Secretary of State
"I think that the question of peace is one of the fundamental issues. Next, onto the internal issues of the Church, such as religious freedom, actions taken by Catholics, and paying attention to the most vulnerable in society."

The cardinal said this at the presentation of, "In your Eyes is my Word," a book which compiles Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio's unpublished speeches and homilies.

It's a volume that was also presented by Chicago's Archbishop Blase Cupich, who has asked not to speak about the new U.S. president.
