Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) again attempted in an interview aired Sunday to clarify his statements about rival Hillary Clinton’s qualifications for the presidency, saying that there was something “clearly lacking” in her judgement.

Sanders and Clinton have had a significant back and forth last week over who was qualified for the presidency. It started when Clinton questioned Sanders’ preparedness for an interview with the editorial board of the New York Daily News. Sanders came back and said Clinton herself was unqualified, a remark he later walked back.

Sanders reiterated Sunday in an interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press” that he thought Clinton has the experience to be President, but questioned her Wall Street donations and stances on other issues.

“I think those issues will tell the American people that in many respects, she may have the experience to be president of the United States. No one can argue that. But in terms of her judgment, something is clearly lacking,” Sanders said.
