Once a staunch supporter, it’s been no secret that more recently the “love affair” between Donald Trump and Ann Coulter is over. Coulter has been very critical of the president lately, and recently the president blasted the conservative columnist over her admonishment of Trump for his “lack of progress on border wall construction.”
In inimitable Trump style, the president hit back with the following tweet. “Wacky Nut Job @AnnCoulter, who still hasn’t figured out that, despite all odds and an entire Democrat Party of Far Left Radicals against me (not to mention certain Republicans who are sadly unwilling to fight), I am winning on the Border,”
“Stopping an Invasion”
Trump went on to say, “Major sections of Wall are being built and renovated, with MUCH MORE to follow shortly,” Trump continued. “Tens of thousands of illegals are being apprehended (captured) at the Border and NOT allowed into our Country. With another President, millions would be pouring in. I am stopping an invasion as the Wall gets built.”
Coulter was once an ardent supporter of Trump, primarily because of his views on the Wall and immigration. She even wrote the book, “In Trump We Trust,” which followed her previous bestseller, “Adios, America,” in which she predicted that unlimited illegal immigration would destroy the US. However, like many of us Coulter has been frustrated with Trump not getting the entirety of the Wall built as quickly as he promised.
She has targeted that frustration squarely at the president, instead of where her ire should be directed – at the endless resistance from federal courts, the Democrats, and, of course, RINOs.
Crisis at the Border Continues
Despite Trump schooling Coulter on just how much progress he is actually making on border security, the president’s Twitter war with her comes only a few days after Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified before Congress that border authorities at DHS expect 1 million illegal aliens to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border this year, a dramatic spike over previous years, which in this writer’s eyes certainly constitutes a “national emergency.”
Someone needs to remind Coulter that Democrats and Republicans are still fighting the president over his border security efforts – this time members of both parties are trying to block his emergency declaration along the border, but Trump believes he’ll eventually prevail in federal court.
