Bernie Gets Called Out Over Border Wall Hypocrisy

In an interview with Fox News anchor Bret Baier, Senator Bernie Sanders was called out for his hypocrisy in his decision to not vote in favor of funding the border wall.

Bret Baier asked Bernie Sanders why he is so opposed to the $5 Billion that President Trump is asking for when he supported a bill funding a border wall in 2013 for $18 Billion.

Baier then asked Sander about reaching a deal on the disagreement between Democrats and Republicans.

“The President says if there’s a shut down he’s fighting for border security. He’ll take that because he wants $5 Billion to fund a wall. Do you think this can get done number one, and number two, do you think that border security is important.”

“I think border security is enormously important, but I think building a wall is a very costly and inefficient way to do that,” Sanders said. “And I’m not alone. I mean, many experts think that given the kind of technology that we have today, we can protect our southern border without building the wall and spending $5 billion.

Furthermore, Bret, I’m not quite sure. He may, but I’m not quite sure that he has the votes in the House to do that.”

Baier then calls him out on his vote in 2013 for border security including a border wall at a cost of $18 Billion.

“Yes. And senator, in 2013 you voted for comprehensive immigration that included $18 billion for a wall in border security,” Baier interjected.

Baier then asked Sanders why the $5 billion is a nonstarter for him.

“Well, I’m saying that you have $5 billion as part of tens of billions more for a wall. What I’m saying right now, sometimes you vote for things that are part of a broad package,” Sanders said, before changing topics.

It sounds to me that Sanders is really trying to sweep that under the rug by saying it’s part of tens of billions more for a wall.
