Ann Coulter Is ‘Not Very Happy’ With Donald Trump’s Job Performance

Commentator and author Ann Coulter is among a growing number of conservatives who are expressing disappointment with President Trump, The Hill reported.

Coulter, who previously praised the president in her book “In Trump We Trust,” lashed out at the administration on Sunday during an interview with The Daily Caller. She criticized Trump’s inability to fulfill one of his top campaign promises, to build a wall along the nation’s southern border and “make Mexico pay for it.”

Referring to the Republican speaker of the House, Coulter declared that “people should start sending Paul Ryan bricks to indicate how much we want the wall.” She explained: “I’m not very happy with what has happened so far. I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises This isn’t North Korea, and if he doesn’t keep his promises I’m out. This is why we voted for him.”

The commentator rejected the administration’s claim that its first 125 days in power have been successful. “Where is the bull in the china shop we wanted?” she asked. “That budget the Republicans pushed through was like a practical joke. ... Did we win anything? And this is the great negotiator?”

Coulter argued that the president has abandoned conservatives. “Trump was our last shot,” she told The Daily Caller. “I kind of thought it was (2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt) 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?”

The Republican majorities in the House and Senate are responsible for the lack of action, according to Coulter. “I do of course blame Congress most of all,” she said. “They are swine. They only care about their own careers. Who knows how much of it is corruption and how much of it is pure stupidity. They are the opposition party to Donald Trump.”

When asked to estimate the odds of the president making good on his campaign promises, Coulter replied that they are “someplace between 10 percent and 90 percent.” She added: “Right now I’m still rooting for him.”
