CNN Chief International Correspondent and host Christiane Amanpour said, “The top Republican candidates, have decided to make a war on Muslims” during CNN’s coverage of the pope’s visit to the US.
Amanpour, while discussing Pope Francis I’s DC visit and speech to Congress, stated, “in that Congress was one of the Republican candidates for presidency — there are two. The top Republican candidates, have decided to make a war on Muslims, you know, 1.5 billion members of another faith. And it must be a little bit weird to have that sort of discordance when this pope is here talking about what makes America great – tolerance and all the other issues that have made this country great, and the power of immigrants and other religions to build this country.”
