Ann Coulter Shreds Trump’s Wall Proposal: ‘We Voted for Trump and Got Jeb!’


After President Donald Trump announced his proposed immigration deal that would offer DACA protections to Democrats in exchange for wall funding, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter ripped the deal and said it would make a wall useless.

“There are a million things to trade for a wall: A higher federal minimum wage, an infrastructure bill, a solar panel bill,” Coulter tweeted. “Trade a wall for AMNESTY, and there’s no purpose to having a wall.”

After Trump shut down the government in a demand for wall funding, many suggested Coulter played a major role in pressuring the president into the gridlock. A Democratic lawmaker even jokingly asked Coulter to tell Trump’s he can open the government again.

“Dear @AnnCoulter — Please tell the President it’s OK to open up the government,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) tweeted earlier this week.

Coulter has gone so far as to say that Trump’s tenure in the White House would be a “joke” if he failed to build the wall — his key campaign promise.

“Trump will just have been a joke presidency who scammed the American people, amused the populists for a while, but he’ll have no legacy whatsoever,” the author said.

UPDATE: Trump officially announced his offer to extend protections for DACA recipients in exchange for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall. Coulter is not pleased.

“We voted for Trump and got Jeb!” she wrote on Twitter.

Have a tip we should know?
