Conservative author and firebrand Ann Coulter was one of Donald Trump’s biggest supporters from day one. She stumped for him while he campaigned, putting all her time and energy behind the businessman’s efforts to become president.
Coulter’s biggest gripe, like many Americans, was the influx of illegal immigration and how the federal government was doing little to curb its rise.
Considering President Trump has had an extremely difficult time getting his wall built on the southern border, Coulter has soured on POTUS.
In fact, she has flat out degraded Trump for being a “wimp” and not keeping his promises to the American people.
After Trump announced an end to the partial government shutdown with a tweet saying wall efforts would begin construction in “21 days,” Coulter demanded action NOW.
I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!
Coulter noted, “Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States.”

She added, “NO MORE WORDS! Break ground today.”

President Trump took notice.
“I hear she’s become very hostile,” Trump said.
He added, “Maybe I didn’t return her phone call or something.”
Coulter recently appeared on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” where she further went after the president.
She noted that POTUS broke the “promise he made every day for 18 months” by not building the wall.
Maher replied, “now you’re finding out he’s a lying con man.”
Coulter then proclaimed, “Okay, I’m a very stupid girl, fine.”
Interestingly enough, a new study suggests the 35-day government shutdown actually cost seven times more than the amount of money requested for the wall by the Trump administration
As noted by Fox News, “Standard & Poor’s has estimated that this shutdown will cost the American economy $6.5 billion per week – a figure they based on data from previous shutdowns. This estimate includes the reduction in spending by furloughed federal workers (though not their actual pay), as well as other trickle-down effects: lost business and revenue to private contractors, fewer vacations and school trips due to park closures, etc. That puts us at about $32 billion just for basic economic disruption.”
Whether Democrats are on board or not, Trump plans to push ahead with construction of the wall in the coming weeks.
