Biden: ‘I Doubt’ Pope Agrees With Sanders’ Policies

Vice President Joe Biden stated that he doesn’t think Pope Francis I agrees with Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) policies during an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood released on Friday.

Biden said that he knows the pope “as well as anybody.” And that he thinks “Bernie making the trip [to the Vatican] is a good thing, but to suggest that the pope embraces Bernie’s policies, I don’t think that’s the case. I don’t know. I doubt it very much.”
