I’m sure Ann Coulter isn’t alone. She, like many of Trump’s supporters, is a single-issue voter. She liked Trump for his stance on immigration and building a giant wall on the U.S.’s southern border.
And since Trump hasn’t been able to garner enough support in Washington to make the wall happen, Coulter is starting to lose faith.
The Daily Caller asked her in an interview Sunday, “So there’s no wall, and Obama’s amnesties look like they are here to stay. Do you still trust Trump?” Here’s how she answered:
Uhhhh. I’m not very happy with what has happened so far. I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But this isn’t North Korea, and if he doesn’t keep his promises I’m out. This is why we voted for him. I think everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque, it was the issues.
I hate to say it, but I agree with every line in my friend Frank Bruni’s op-ed in The New York Times today. Where is the great negotiation? Where is the bull in the china shop we wanted? That budget the Republicans pushed through was like a practical joke… Did we win anything? And this is the great negotiator?
A couple of things.
First, Trump just got elected. He’s barely out of his first 100 days. I’d say, as long as his supporters continue to put his feet to the fire and not forget, the wall will get built at some point in his presidency. But it might be a while considering the level of opposition in Washington against the President.
Second, this is the way it is in politics today. Rarely is there any actual progress made. Merely conserving the status quo is considered progress, because of how difficult it is to change things in D.C. for the better.
The Daily Caller asked her, “You said during the election and in columns that if there is no wall it’s the end of America.” Her response:
Trump was our last shot. I kind of thought it was Romney, and then lo and behold like a miracle Trump comes along. I still believe in Trumpism. I have no regrets for ferociously supporting him. What choice did we have?
We had no choice. Yeah, I mean, my fingers are still crossed. It’s not like I’m out yet, but boy, things don’t look good. I’ve said to other people, ‘It’s as if we’re in Chicago and Trump tells us he’s going to get us to LA in six days. But for the first three days we are driving towards New York. Yes, it is true he can still turn around and get us to LA in three days, but I’m a little nervous.’
