Does Ann Coulter still have Trump’s ear? President responds to her suggestion after omnibus shakeup

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been President Donald Trump’s biggest fan AND his biggest critic when the president runs afoul of her expectations, but she may still have influence on his decision-making.

Coulter appeared on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine” over the weekend to take Trump to task for signing a fiscally irresponsible $1.3 trillion omnibus bill that did not include funding for a border wall.

“We thought that perhaps he was not the world’s greatest negotiator but a negotiator and we got nothing,” Coulter said.

Host Jeanine Pirro, a staunch supporter of the president, came to Trump’s defense, noting that effects of the omnibus bill passed was because “Republicans didn’t care enough.”

“But we knew that,” Coulter replied. “We knew that from Trump’s campaign. We knew they were swine.”

In the end, Coulter suggested that President Trump could fund the wall as a matter of national defense.

“There is no more crucial attack on our national defense than the fact that we don’t have a wall,” she insisted.

Sunday morning, Trump took to social media to comment on funding secured in the spending bill for a border wall, even though the omnibus severely restricts what the $1.6 billion he references can be used for.

“Much can be done with the $1.6 Billion given to building and fixing the border wall,” he tweeted. “It is just a down payment. Work will start immediately. The rest of the money will come – and remember DACA, the Democrats abandoned you (but we will not)!”

Somewhere, Ann Coulter was surely grinning like a Cheshire cat, comfortable in the idea that Trump is still listening.
