Rep. Blake Farenthold (TX-27) represents the Corpus Christi area, one of the Texas communities hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey’s record destruction. CNN’s Carol Costello interviewed Farenthold and asked point blank, “Should the president put aside his plans to build the wall and fund it for now?”

After a brief stammer, Farenthold said:

Again, I think—yes. The simple answer to that question is yes. There’s enough going on in Texas. The contractors that might be building the wall would certainly be better served helping rebuild Houston.
