comments made by the pope. the pope was asked on his plane about trump's plan to build a wall on the u.s./mexico border. the pope saying the motion is not christian. trump immediately blasting the pope, calling his words, quote, disgrateful. abc's chief foreign correspondent terry moran was on the pope's plane, and here was the moment. >> reporter: on board the papal plane, a stunning moment. pope francis asked directly about donald trump's plans to build a wall on the u.s./mexico border and deport millions of undocumented immigrants, speaking from the heart. "a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not of building bridges is not christian," the pope said. adding, pointedly, "this man is not christian if he has said things like that." a staggering papal denunciation and it came after a week of francis in mexico, again and again, preaching a highly
charged political message. like those scenes in juarez, a few feet from the u.s. border, francis giving his blessing across the rio grande to undocumented immigrants in the u.s. and then demanding that more be done for all desperate migrants. "no more death, no more exploitation," he pleaded. >> and terry moran is with us live from the vatican tonight. terry, this is a pope who seems to choose his words very carefully. did the pope intend to put himself in the middle of this presidential race? >> reporter: david, you're right. he knew exactly what he was doing. francis knows who trump is, he's following these issues. they're very close to his heart. but the pope also told us, he's not trying to be political. he's not supporting a candidate or a policy. he's trying to remind politicians and voters of what he believes are the teachings of jesus christ. david? >> terry moran live in vatican city tonight. terry, thank you. now, let's get to donald trump and his message for the pope tonight.
and it wasn't just trump, because other republican candidates, some who supported the idea of a wall, were left to respond to the pope, too. and they did. tom came has in s carolina for us tonight. >> reporter: it was a headline that surprised even donald trump. >> they said mr. trump, the pope made a statement about you. i said, the pope? what did the pope say? i like the pope, i mean -- was it good or bad? >> reporter: it wasn't good. >> he actually said that maybe i'm not a good christian or something. it's unbelievable. which is really not a nice thing to say. >> reporter: trump then turning up the volume. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. i'm proud to be a christian. no leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man's religion or faith. >> reporter: the billionaire candidate accusing mexico of using pope francis as a, quote, pawn, in the debate over immigration and border security. >> if and when the vatican is attacked by isis, which, as
everyone knows, is isis' ultimate trophy, i can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> reporter: for good measure, the trump team even tweeting this image of the vatican, showing it's surrounded by walls. here in south carolina, trump has recently himself questioned the christian faith of his rival, senator ted cruz. >> i've never seen anybody that lied as much as ted cruz. and he goes around saying he's a christian. >> reporter: but today, cruz wasn't picking sides. >> listen, that's between donald and the pope. i'm not going to get in the middle of that. i'll let them work it out. >> reporter: cruz also favors a border wall. do you think that's unchristian to build a border wall, senator? and repeatedly dodged me as i tried to get his response to the pope's comments. senator, do you think a border wall is unchristian? >> i'm going to visit with the voters now, thank you. >> reporter: senator marco rubio, who is himself catholic, praised the pope. >> i have tremendous respect and admiration for him.
>> reporter: but rubio making it clear he and the holy father disagree on immigration. >> we are a sovereign country and we have a right to control who comes in, when they come in and how they come in. >> reporter: and tonight, jeb bush, also a catholic, saying this. >> i don't question anybody's christianity. because i honestly believe that's a relationship you have with your creator. >> and tom llamas with us live from south carolina tonight. and tom, sol well-known conservative voices coming to donald trump's defense, after the pope's comments. >> reporter: that's right, david. just behind me, donald trump is wrapping up this event here in south carolina, but you're right. some influential conservatives defending donald trump tonight, saying, quote, this was rush limbaugh, given the pope's political leanings, i'm surprised he isn't on the campaign trail for bernie sanders. david? >> tom, thank you. now, to the m theic side this evening. there are major developments there, as well. with just two days to go until the nevada caucuses, and a new national poll by fox tonight, showing beknee sanders inching ahead of hillary clinton nationally, 47% to 44%.

>> reporter: clinton then comforting the child. >> i'm going to do everything you can so you don't have to be scared. and you don't have to worry about what happens to your family. let me do the worrying. i'll do all the worrying. is that a deal? i'll do the worrying. i'll do everything i can to help, okay? >> reporter: but clint to be now bracing for another upset in a state she once seemed poised to win. her first campaign office here opened nearly a year ago, months before bernie sanders. >> we're going to surprise a lot of people here in nevada. >> reporter: but now, sanders is fired up. his army out in force, knocking on every door possible. we stopped by hillary clinton's campaign office today. hi, how are you? where they are calling thousands of people. >> we're making thousands and thousands of calls. >> reporter: out of this office alone. in the pages of "vogue," an inhave sprekive moment for clinton. asked if the u.s. was ready for its first female president,
considering new york city hasn't even had a female mayor, clinton saying, quote, "i think it's gotten better. but i think there's still a very deep set of concerns that people have, which very often they're not even aware of are they couldn't articulate." >> and cecilia vega live from nevada tonight. tonight, bernie sanders leveling pretty harsh words towards clinton when it comes to her support of president obama? >> reporter: that's right. it's an interview with b.e.t. sanders is saying that clinton is cozying up to the president. we know what that's about. that's trying to win support from the african-american community, where the president is enormously popular. clinton firing back, just now, highlighting sanders' own criticism of the president. david, this fight is hotter than ever. >> cecilia vega with us again tonight. cecilia, thank you. now, to breaking developments this evening, in the san bernardino terror case. federal agents today serving a search warrant at the home of syed fra rookfarook's brought.

experts telling abc news today it would not be that hard to design a gateway or a back door. >> it would be easy, but just because someone's easy to do doesn't mean you could do it. >> reporter: some analysts say it opens up pandora's box. >> you would have created what amounts to a smart software bomb that if it falls into the wrong hands, it could be used to unlock every single iphone and ipad in existence. >> reporter: david, law enforcement officials are frustrated with apple's attitude. so, expect the justice department to take additional steps in court to force apple to open that phone immediately. >> all right, pierre thomas, thank you. now, to another security scare involving your personal information. hackers out there taking control of your personal computers, forcing you to pay to get the information back. abc's matt gutman reports tonight, the newest victim, a hospital, and your medical records. >> reporter: tonight, the fbi says the only thing you can do
