Laurel Staples, an anchor at KECI/KCFW/KTVM in Montana, got one of the Skype seat questions at today’s White House press briefing. She talked about Montana’s “hundreds of miles of border with Canada” and asked, “What are the administration’s plans to increase the security in the Canadian border and does the administration have any plans to build a wall there?”

“We’re obviously…concerned, thank you,” said Spicer, with a laugh.

“I think the president understands that our southern border is where we have more of a concern… but that doesn’t mean we’re not paying attention to our northern border as well and will take steps necessary at our northern border to ensure the safety of all Americans.”

Spicer didn’t dismiss the idea of a wall, however.
