In Vatican Speech, Bernie Sanders Condemns Economy for the 1%

HeadlineApr 18, 2016

Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton spent much of the weekend campaigning ahead of Tuesday’s primary in New York. On Sunday, Sanders spoke before a crowd of over 28,000 in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in what the campaign described as Sanders’ largest rally ever. On Friday, Sanders took a break from the campaign trail to fly to the Vatican, where he addressed a conference on social justice.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: “Rather than an economy aimed at the common good, we have been left with an economy operated for the top 1 percent, who get wealthier and wealthier as the working class, the young and the poor fall further and further behind.”

Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane briefly met with Pope Francis on Saturday morning.
