Coulter: If we’re not getting the wall, we may as well have an attractive dignified president
Ann Coulter on Wednesday slammed President Trump as less “attractive” and “dignified” than Vice President Pence and doubled down on her recent harsh criticism of the president by advocating replacing him with his second in command.
“If we’re not getting a wall, we may as well have an attractive, dignified Republican there. We’ll get better Supreme Court justices under Pence,” the prominent conservative pundit said on Newsmax TV’s Howie Carr show.
Coulter, who was a fervent advocate of Trump as a candidate and authored the book “In Trump We Trust,” has since become a critic of Trump due to inaction on campaign promises, especially his pledge to have Mexico pay for a border wall with the U.S.
Carr brought up a recent tweet in which Coulter said “who doesn’t want Trump impeached?” and asked if she still held the same position.
“There’s no modification of that,” Coulter said. “What faction would be against that now? I mean, if we’re not getting the wall, obviously Mike Pence would be better. It’s not like we weren’t aware of the massive personal baggage of Donald Trump.”
Coulter was one of several high-profile Trump supporters who blasted the president for couching his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to allow for Congress to pass legislation protecting people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
Trump recently sought to make a deal with top Democrats in exchange for their commitment to increasing border security, but reports indicated Trump agreed to not link border wall funding to DACA legislation.
“What did they chant at every rally for 18 months? ‘Build the wall!’ We thought he understood the urgency of this, but maybe we were wrong, maybe he doesn’t seem to understand that,” Coulter said.
