Coulter Is Not The Die-Hard Trump Supporter She Used To Be

Political pundit Ann Coulter, an avid supporter of Donald Trump’s campaign last year, is among many conservatives who are becoming disillusioned with the president, according to The Huffington Post.

“Everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque,” Coulter said in an interview with The Daily Caller. The commentator and author suggested that conservatives stood by Trump because they thought he agreed with them on issues. “Boy, things don’t look good (now),” she remarked. “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 ... if he doesn’t keep his promises I’m out.”

Coulter slammed the administration for its struggles to pass legislation. “Where is the great negotiation?” she asked. “That budget the Republicans pushed through was like a practical joke. … Did we win anything?” Citing Trump’s failure to fulfill his campaign promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, Coulter accused the president and his team of being a “disaster so far.” She recently joked that people should send bricks to House Speaker Paul Ryan, to help get the wall started.

Coulter also criticized Trump for giving White House staff positions to his daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner. “Americans don’t like that. I don’t like that. That’s the one fascist thing he’s done: hiring his kids,” she said.

In her book “In Trump We Trust,” Coulter wrote that she had “blind loyalty” to the presidential candidate and that she “worshiped” him. She told The Daily Caller: “I have no regrets for ferociously supporting him. What choice did we have? I don’t apologize. ... He said all the right things and nobody else would even say it.” Coulter explained that she still believes in “Trumpism,” but is frustrated with Republican congressional leaders. “They are swine,” she said.

The Huffington Post noted that Coulter was a subject of controversy in April when she was forced to cancel speeches at the University of California at Berkeley because campus security officials expected large protests. The commentator had planned to call for more roundups of undocumented immigrants.
