Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton avoided answering a question regarding her alleged call for open borders in Wednesday night’s presidential debate.

Debate moderator Chris Wallace pointed out that Clinton claimed she had a dream for a country with “open trade and open borders,” according to a transcript from a private meeting with Wall Street executives. Clinton avoided answering whether she supported open borders by pointing out that the source of those leaks came from hacks by the Russian government.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump responded to Clinton’s response by calling it a good “pivot” away from truly answering the question.

The speech transcripts were included in emails belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, released by WikiLeaks. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released a joint statement in early October, which claimed the intelligence community was “confident” the Russian government was behind the hacks.
