Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Sunday that he doesn’t have “the vaguest idea” what rival Hillary Clinton is referring to by calling him a “single-issue candidate.”

CNN “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper asked Sanders how he interpreted Clinton’s criticism.

“I haven’t the vaguest idea what she’s talking about. If she thinks that income and wealth inequality, and the fact that the rich get richer while everybody else gets poorer is the only issue, it’s not,” Sanders replied.

He continued speaking, addressing where he stands on other issues such as climate change and health care.

“We’re talking about dozens of issues so I’m not quite sure where Secretary Clinton is coming from,” he said.
