Ann Coulter says Donald Trump's national emergency is to "scam the stupidest people in his base for next 2 years"
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, a strong supporter of Donald Trump until very recently, has been very vocal about her irritation regarding the president’s inability to follow through on the border wall.
On the recent Trump emergency declaration, she said he was only doing so to “scam the stupidest people in his base in his base for 2 more years."
Coulter, who authored the book ‘In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!’ in 2006, turned against the President last month, after he unexpectedly agreed to reopen the government without any border funds.
Quoting the tweet of Conservative Review senior editor Daniel Horowitz, in which he wrote that “the goal of a national emergency is to end illegal immigration and cartel smuggling,” Coulter opined, “No, the goal of a national emergency is for Trump to scam the stupidest people in his base for 2 more years,” she tweeted.
Coulter seems to have lost all trust in the president, and wrote in a separate tweet, “The goal is to get Trump's stupidest voters to say ‘HE'S FIGHTING!’ No he's not. If he signs this bill, it's over.” She was referring to the bipartisan border deal that Congress has presented to the president to sign, and which contains much less money than what Trump had demanded for border security. "Unhappy" with the allocation, Trump declared the emergency in order to build the wall. However, the decision is facing legal scrutiny.

She is also currently, vehemently tweeting against the Trump governemnt, including retweeting comments about Jared Kushner being the president for all intents and purposes.
If we're going to have some doofus named Jared running our immigration policy, I'd prefer that it be that pederast from the Subway ads.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) February 15, 2019
This comes in the wake of Coutler’s radio interview with KABC's Morning Drive on Friday, wherein she said that "the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot." Trump had claimed earlier claimed that the conservative voice is "off the reservation.”
To this, Coulter said, “Thank God he’s relieved me of any responsibility for what he’s been doing. That was the biggest favor anyone could do [for] me today.” Trump made the comments about Coulter during a press conference, wherein he first claimed to not know who Coulter was, before saying that he has not spoken to her in over a year.
THANK YOU, Mr. President for admitting that your total capitulation on campaign promises has nothing to do with me. https://t.co/f8Yff96nfl— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) February 15, 2019
He said, "Ann Coulter, I don’t know her. I hardly know her. I haven’t spoken to her in way over a year. But the press loves saying, ‘Ann Coulter.’” Further he added, "Probably if I did speak to her, she’d be very nice. I just don’t have the time to speak to her. I would speak to her. I have nothing against her," he continued. "In fact, I like her for one reason. When they asked her right at the beginning, ‘Who’s going to win the election?’ She said, ‘Donald Trump.’ And the two people that asked her that question smiled. They said, ‘You’re kidding, aren’t you?’ Nope. Donald Trump. So, I like her."
“But she’s off the reservation,” Trump concluded. “But anybody that knows her understands that. But I haven’t spoken to her. I don’t follow her. I don’t talk to her.”
