BREAKING: Bernie Sanders Invited to Visit the Vatican Four Days Before New York Primary

by Eduardo Samaniego

Bernie Sanders has been invited to Vatican City just four days before the New York primary.

Bernie Sanders announced Friday: “I am delighted to have been invited by the Vatican to a meeting on restoring social justice and environmental sustainability to the world economy,” “Pope Francis has made clear that we must overcome ‘the globalization of indifference’ in order to reduce economic inequalities, stop financial corruption and protect the natural environment. That is our challenge in the United States and in the world.”

This meeting will play an important role ahead of the New York primary, where Catholics make up about one quarter of voters identified as religious. Senator Sander’s visit to the Vatican could tip the Catholic vote in his favor.

Although four out of the current five presidential contenders identify as Christian, Bernie Sanders who’s always identified as Jewish was the only one to receive an invitation to the Vatican.
