Wallace confronted Sanders on everything from accusations that Hillary Clinton is bought off by Wall Street to his claims about income inequality and beliefs on universal health care. Wallace asked at one point, “If the wealthy have rigged the system, why have they done such a lousy job of it?”

He even repeatedly pressed Sanders on his belief in single-payer health care.

Wallace ended by asking Sanders about the DNC’s refusal to do any debates on Fox News. Sanders said he would be perfectly fine with doing a debate on Fox as long as it’s done fairly.
