Sen. Bernie Sanders said he would be open to tearing down existing barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border if the demolition didn’t cost too much, according to Vice News.
“You said the wall is symbolic, so wouldn’t it be proper to tear that symbol down in order to achieve that?” asked Vice News’ Alzo Slade.
“It may be, but how much is it going to cost to tear it down?” Sanders replied. “Should you do that, tear it down? I don’t know, maybe the answer is yes.”
David Noriega pressed the issue, asking Sanders to clarify: “That’s something you’re willing to consider; you’re willing to consider tearing down existing fencing between the U.S. and Mexico?”
“Yeah, you do,” Sanders replied. “But if it’s going to cost me billions of dollars to tear it down, I’d rather invest that money in the needs of childcare in this country. But it’s something we can look at.”
