Donald Trump releases video praising ‘humble and pious’ Mother Teresa
The Republican candidate for president posted the video to YouTube ahead of Mother Teresa’s canonisation
US presidential candidate Donald Trump has released an online video in which he praises St Teresa of Calcutta’s “amazing life of charity and holiness."
The clip was released to coincide with the canonisation of Mother Teresa by Pope Francis in St Peter’s Square on Sunday morning.
In the 40-second video, which was uploaded to YouTube on Saturday, Trump said Mother Teresa “gave food to the hungry, shelter to the homeless and education to the needy".
He added: “She represented the best in each of us. I’m truly happy to see Catholics across the world join together to celebrate Mother Teresa’s uniquely humble, generous and pious life. There was nobody like her".
