Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), a 2020 presidential hopeful, said that she could support removing portions of America’s southern border wall that already exist while speaking with reporters during a campaign stop in Concord, NH on Friday.

A reporter asked Gillibrand whether she agreed with potential 2020 hopeful, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), who said during an MSNBC interview Thursday evening that he would support taking down the border wall in El Paso.

“I would have to ask folks in that part of the country to see whether fencing that exists today is helpful or unhelpful,” Gillibrand said.

Gillibrand then told the reporter that Democrats are for border security before attacking President Trump for wanting to build a “medieval-styled wall.”

“So, I could look at it and see which part [O’Rourke] means and why, and if it makes sense, I could support it,” Gillibrand said.
