During the most recent DNC debate, 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren signaled she’d “of course” be open to using taxpayer funding to tear down parts of the border wall.
You’ve said that the border wall that President Trump has proposed is quote ‘a monument to hate and division.’ Would you ask taxpayers to pay to take down any part of the wall on the nation’s southern border?
If there are parts of the wall that are not useful in our defense, of course we should do it.

The comments were largely ridiculed by conservatives and even many Democrats who felt it was too extreme.
