Beto O'Rourke: 'I'd take the wall down'

Potential 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke said if it were up to him, there would be no border wall in El Paso, Texas.

O’Rourke, a Democratic former Texas congressman and candidate for Senate, responded in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Thursday to a question tweeted by Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), who asked whether O’Rourke would make the city’s border wall disappear if he could.

“Absolutely,” O’Rourke said without hesitation.

“I’d take the wall down,” O’Rourke said, adding that the barrier has “not in any demonstrable way made us safer.”

O’Rourke said the existing wall “has pushed migrants and asylum seekers and refugees to the most inhospitable, the most hostile stretches of the U.S.-Mexico border ensuring their suffering and death.”


Please Democrats. Please run Beto against Trump in 2020. It will be 1984 all over again.

No, hell no. If he gets the Democratic nod, Trump gets 4 more years. No race to speak of, probably a land slide. I want a centrist who is a little left of center, or for that matter a centrist who is a little right of center. They used to be called moderates.

If it's another election of extremes, Trump's got another 4 years.

If they're smart, they pick someone in the middle.

Of who’s announced so far, who is in the “middle”?

They’ve all agreed with AOC’s green dream

Z, I don't think so. I think Gene's parliament of whites got us here. But if you would flesh that out a little bit I will certainly read it and consider it. I might be wrong, but I think we both agree that we need less government at the federal level, and politicians who are constitutionalists, however much of a pipe dream that is.

You’re agreeing more ^ when you weren’t trying and you don’t know it! Also pretty sure he said whores, FYI I’ve met more whores who weren’t white, but in all fairness I only eat food at truck stops.

there's another reason not to go camping with Z...

speaking of O'Rourke, I don't see how one can leverage losing a close race to a fading disliked GOP fog into national prominence...

I think Stacey Abrahms has a better shot on the national political scene because her loss was tainted...

but what do I know? I never thought someone with Trump's baggage had any chance to be POTUS...
