      Officially no. But many Catholics do seem to speak of his day to day utterances as if they were infallible.

      Not if they were like Donald's tweets; they'd barely be coherent and certainly wouldn't be true and, of course, nothing that is not true can be infallible.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Like they're the only ones doing that. Try attack Luther or Calvin or some evangelical hero. I told an evangelical guy i had a nice preaching for him from Michael Brown. He said: Oh I only listen to preachers who are approved of by my church LOL and then it came:
      like Creflo Dollar, Kenneth Copeland...
      oh my, never mind.

      Does he have to tweet it to be incoherent and false...

      No, but Donald specialises in incoherent tweeting.

      The pope is a Catholic. Donald is supposed to be a Presbyterian. A Calvinist chap, like you

      He's probably Presbyterian USA, which means he denies the deity of Christ and just enjoys the social country club and message about humanism.

      I dont know if he denies Christs Deity, but he isn't saved. We should pray for him. I heard em ask him. Have you ever confessed your sins? He babbled over it. He had no idea.

      Yes, his actions are not consistent with being an adopted child of God.
