During a closing monologue during her new streaming show, Lahren blasted Trump for agreeing to end the longest government shutdown in U.S. history without funding for his proposed wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.


“I haven’t lost hope. I’m not jumping ship,” Lahren said. “But like hell I am going to sit back and say it’s OK just because I voted for him. He essentially gave Nancy and friends the key to the castle.”



Trump agreed last week to three-week funding legislation to allow time for border security negotiations with Democrats.

"Does he really think in three weeks Congress is gonna come up to some kind of a solution on immigration and fund the wall? They haven't been able to do that in over 20 years, but now these three weeks are gonna be magic?" Lahren asked.

Lahren ended her monologue with a challenge to Trump, calling on him to stand firm on his demand for border wall funding.

“Because Trump backed down, [Pelosi] won. She won the battle. Question is, will she win the war?” Lahren asked. “That’s all up to you,President Trump.”

Lahren joins a chorus of other conservative commentator who have been critical of Trump since he announced the agreement to end the shutdown.

Conservative author Ann Coulter  blasted Trump, calling him the “biggest wimp ever to serve as president.”
