The Donald says if Pope Francis denounces capitalism while in the United States he’ll “scare” him by telling him ISIS want to take over the Vatican.

Trump said he would use Islamic State extremists to scare the pope if he slammed capitalism on his upcoming visit to the U.S.

Pope Francis will honor immigrants by using a chair made by Latino laborers during Mass next month at New York’s Madison Square Garden — where he is expected to make critical remarks about American economic policies, as he has in the past.

Trump, the Republican presidential frontrunner, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he would remind the pope that ISIS radicals want to kill him and take over the Vatican.

“I’d say, ‘ISIS wants to get you,’” Trump said. “You know that ISIS wants to go in and take over the Vatican — you have heard that. That’s a dream of theirs.”

Cuomo asked if he would really try to scare the pope.

“I’m going to have to scare the pope,” Trump said. “The pope, I hope, can only be scared by God, but the truth is — you know, if you look at what’s going on — they better hope that capitalism works, because it’s the only thing we have right now. And it’s a great thing when it works properly.”
