Trump Scoffs at Ann Coulter: ‘Maybe I Didn’t Return Her Phone Call or Something’
President Donald Trump slammed Ann Coulter in a new interview with the Wall Street Journal published on Sunday.
“I hear she’s become very hostile,” Trump said about Coulter, who has taken jabs of her own recently at Trump.
The president added: “Maybe I didn’t return her phone call or something.”
On Friday, Coulter called Trump a “wimp” after learning the temporary shutdown deal did not include money for the wall.
“Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States,” Coulter wrote on Twitter.

Then, later the same day, she sent a six-word tweet aimed at Trump reading simply: “NO MORE WORDS! Break ground today.”

That Coulter tweet was in response to Trump’s claim — also in a tweet — that ending the shutdown “was in no way a concession.”
I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!

It is unclear if Trump actually saw all of Coulter’s disparaging tweets since apparently, he unfollowed her back in December after she declared his presidency a “joke presidency.”
