posted by Hannity Staff - 11.27.18

Failed Texas Senate hopeful Beto O’Rourke hinted at a potential run for the White House this week; publicly admitting he was not ruling out taking-on Donald Trump in 2020 despite previous denials.

O’Rourke was speaking at a Town Hall event in Texas when he was asked to comment on the Democratic nomination process poised to kick-off in just months.

“Running for Senate, I was 100 percent focused on our campaign, winning that race and then serving the next six years in the United States Senate,” said Beto. “Now that that is no longer possible, you know, we’re thinking through a number of things.”

The Texas congressman was then asked if his previous position from before his 2018 defeat to Sen. Ted Cruz had changed.

“Yeah, yeah it is,” said O’Rourke.

BETO GOES BERSERK: O’Rourke Calls for the REMOVAL of El Paso Border Wall

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.15.19

Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke called for the removal of El Paso’s critical border wall this week; saying the physical barrier “has not in any way” made the US “safer” and costs “tens of billions of dollars.”

“Would you -if you could- take the wall down now? Here?” asked MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

“Yes, Absolutely. I’d take the wall down,” said Beto.

“Here’s what we know… After the Secure Fence Act we built 600 miles of wall and fencing on a 2,000 mile border. What that has done has not in any way made us safer. It cost us tens of billions of dollars to build and to maintain,” he added.
