Pope Francis named Washington, D.C., Archbishop Wilton Gregory as one of 13 new Roman Catholic cardinals. He will become the first African American to hold the rank. Gregory spoke out against police brutality and racism following the police killing of George Floyd in May. In June, the archbishop blasted Trump after police used tear gas and other violent tactics against protesters to clear a path to St. John’s Church so Trump could have a photo op while holding up a Bible.
