Trump’s comments on immigration bad timing for Ann Coulter — and she lets him know it

For author and political commentator Anne Coulter, Donald Trump‘s possible change in his immigration stance is bad for business.

As the Republican presidential nominee spoke at a town hall Wednesday with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity, Trump offered up what seemed to be a softening of his previous hard-line approach to illegal immigration.

“It’s a very, very hard thing,” he admitted, referring to deporting those who have been in the U.S. illegally for years.

Coulter, a vocal Trump ally and a strong opponent of illegal immigration, fired off a series of tweets in reaction to Trump’s comments, sarcastically replying to one remark, “Well, if it’s ‘hard,’ then nevermind.”

 

Coulter’s current tour to promote her book, “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” could be threatened by the candidate’s openness to changing a pivotal part of his campaign. Hoping he would change the rhetoric, Coulter suggested Trump “panicked” as the reason for his shift.

In her final tweet of the night, Coulter got in one more jab with a re-tweet of a post “Muslim [collecting] 4 years of welfare in Maine while becoming radicalized & joined ISIS!”

Her response: “It’s ‘hard’ to deport someone who’s been here FOUR YEARS!”
