POPE Francis has hit out against the potential of a “very dangerous alliance” at the G20 summit among world powers including the United States and Russia.

The Pope fears US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “a distorted vision of the world”, claiming any formed alliance could harm the poor and migrants.

He lumped the pair in with other “dangerous alliances” of China and North Korea, and Vladimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad in the war in Syria.

He told the Italian daily la Republica’s founder Eugenio Scalfari: “The G20 worries me, it hits migrants in countries in half of the world and it hits them even more as time goes by.”

The Pope stressed the greatest danger concerns immigration, with “the poor, the weak, the excluded and the marginalised” juxtaposed with “those who… fear the invasion of migrants”.

Yesterday, Mr Trump described his first meeting with Mr Putin at the G20 summit as “tremendous”.

The summit, a meeting with the leaders of the world’s top 20 economies, is hosted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and held in Hamburg.
