Far-right commentator Ann Coulter was a strong Trump supporter in 2016, but with the President’s apparent step back from holding the federal budget hostage to his long-promised border wall, her support seems to be souring.
Coulter, a long time circulator of white supremacist and xenophobic rhetoric, didn’t mince words when expressing her dissatisfaction with the President’s decision.
She said in an interview with the Daily Caller that if the wall doesn’t get built,
“Trump will just have been a joke presidency who scammed the American people, amused the populists for a while, but he’ll have no legacy whatsoever.”
It sounds like she’s finally getting it.

What’s more, Coulter said she will not vote for Trump again if the wall doesn’t materialize, continuing:
“Nor will, I think, most of his supporters. Why would you? To make sure, I don’t know, Ivanka and Jared can make money? That seems to be the main point of the presidency at this point.”
For once, Democrats agreed with Coulter.
If Ann Coulter is unhappy then something good must have happened.

Great! Fewer votes for Trump is good news!

So what she's saying is – "I won't vote for a president who can't keep out these brown and black people"

Some thought Ann Coulter’s opinions were too irrelevant to care.
@AnnCoulter and this is news because??? Nobody cares about u or the wall.

Tell Ann we don't really care who she votes for or doesn't vote for. Why even write about her? I love how media continues to validate these type of people's opinions?

Who cares? #Coultergeist is trying to make herself relevant again

While most Democrats tend to agree with criticisms of Donald Trump, there was one point of contention on their part regarding Coulter’s words.
