Sanders to Attend Vatican City Meeting on Economic, Social Issues

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will head to Vatican City just days before the NY primary to attend a meeting on social justice and economic issues.

Sanders announced Friday morning that he'll attend the conference, which will be hosted by the Pontifical School of Social Sciences on April fifteen.

Sanders, who'd be the first Jewish U. south. president, said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he was invited by the Vatican to attend the event. While he acknowledged that he disagrees with the Catholic Church'south teachings on some social issues, such as homosexual marriage, he praised Pope Francis for "injecting a ethical consequence into the economy."

"People think Bernie Sanders is a radical, (but) read what the Pope is writing," he said.

Sanders, who's won six of the latest seven nominating contests in the Democratic race, is aiming to continue cutting into rival Hillary Clinton'south significant lead in delegates.

New York'south primary, where Clinton is currently favored, will be held on April nineteen, just days after Sanders travels to Rome.
