Ann Coulter and many conservatives are not handling today well after their favorite President caved to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats on border wall funding.
President Trump announced in the Rose Garden today that he will sign a bill to open the Government for three weeks until Congress can come up with a deal to fund his wall at the southern border.
The deal Trump will sign is one that the Democrats offered him 35 days ago. The president calls himself a “deal maker” and “master negotiator” but shutting the Government down for one month and not paying 800,000 federal employees for this result is not “The art of the deal.”
In a serious of tweets, Ann Coulter now says Trump is the biggest wimp to ever serve as President of the United States.
Coulter also ranted about the “incompetent FBI” and their raid on Roger Stone.
“Sure feel safer today, with the feds taking Roger Stone off the streets. No need for a border wall now,” Coulter tweeted.
She continued: “Trump tweets about Roger Stone raid, “Who alerted CNN to be there?” Just think! If you were president, you could haul the FBI director’s ass into the Oval Office and ask him yourself.”
Ann Coulter did predict that President Trump would fold on the wall just a few weeks back, I don’t know why she’s acting so surprised today.
Trump is an entertainer, he calls many polls “Fake News” to fool his base but he knows how to read them and he reads them very closely. Polls show that he was always on the losing end of this shutdown.
Trump has also promised his base many times that Mexico would build a wall and they might even send a check. Americans were not willing to pay additional taxes to fund the wall on the southern border over a campaign promise.
President Trump and Republicans had two years of full control of Congress to fight for their wall, but they waited until Democrats took won the Midterms to bring this issue to the table.
Perhaps Trump caved because he wanted to change the narrative today because his friend and former advisor Roger Stone got arrested by the FBI.
