Coulter blasts Trump over shutdown deal: ‘Biggest wimp ever to serve as president’

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter ripped President Trump over the news that he has agreed to end the government shutdown by accepting a temporary funding bill without money for his border wall, saying that Trump is now a bigger wimp than former President George H.W. Bush.

Coulter posted on Twitter shortly after Trump made the public announcement in the Rose Garden of the White House on Friday.

{mosads}Coulter has long been thought of as someone Trump looks to as a gauge of public support amongst his conservative base. She said last month — right before the shutdown began —that she would not vote for Trump again in 2020 without a border wall.

She published the book “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” in 2016 but has been critical of him recently, saying Trump’s presidency would be a “joke” if he gave in to Democrats by signing government funding legislation that didn’t include money for a border wall and warning him not to cave.

After previous remarks against Trump, Coulter pointed out that he unfollowed her on Twitter.

Earlier this month, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) asked Coulter to tell Trump “it’s OK” to fully reopen the federal government.
