Tweeting at the top of her lungs.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced on Thursday that President Donald Trump will sign a bipartisan spending bill to prevent another shutdown while also declaring a national emergency in a last-ditch effort to erect a wall at the southern border.

McConnell reportedly urged the president not to invoke his emergency powers but is standing by him anyway.

“I had an opportunity to speak with President Trump and he, I would say to all my colleagues, has indicated he’s prepared to sign the bill,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. “He also [will] be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time. I indicated I’m going to support the national emergency declaration.”

Watch below:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed the president’s intentions in a statement Thursday afternoon.

β€œPresident Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action – including a national emergency – to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” the statement read. “The president is once again delivering on his promise to build the wall, protect the border, and secure our great country.”

When the news of Trump’s plans reached right-wing pundit Ann Coulter, she took to Twitter to express her frustration, assailing her fellow Republicans for “selling out our constituents.”

“GOP motto: NEXT TIME!,” Coulter thrashed on Twitter. “We’re selling out our constituents this time — but we’ll get to our promises NEXT TIME. We thought Trump was different.”

“NATIONAL EMERGENCY WON’T HELP,” Coulter exclaimed a few minutes later. “IT’S OVER IF HE SIGNS THIS BILL!”

Happy Valentine’s Day, Ann.

Coulter flushed her loyalty to Trump late last year over his failure to fulfill his campaign promise of building a Mexico-funded border wall.

Ironically though, Coulter may be onto something, as Democrats in the Senate have vowed to challenge the emergency declaration.
