Ann Coulter Slams ‘Republican Obstructionism’: They ‘Hate Trump Every Bit as Much as MSNBC Does’


Ann Coulter was one of the earliest and most passionate supporters of Donald Trump, even writing a book titled In Trump We Trust.

On Fox News’ Varney & Co. today, Coulter criticized Republicans for helping Democrats impede President Trump’s agenda.

Coulter, who has been critical of Trump for not being aggressive enough in starting construction of a wall on the southern border, believes that Congressional Republicans have done little to help the President in repealing ObamaCare or getting nominations through the Senate.

Coulter believes that resistance to the President is based, at least in part, not on disagreements in policy but simply on hatred of Mr. Trump.

“A lot of them really, really hate Trump every bit as much as MSNBC does and they’re slow-walking everything and they are not helping him,” she said.

Coulter specifically called out North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis for placing a hold on Trump’s nominee to head the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Tillis and other Senators have argued for more foreign workers saying that more H-2B visas are needed to fill jobs that American workers don’t want and necessary to fix “this problem facing small businesses across the country.”

She said Tillis wants “a bunch more cheap foreign workers for the Chamber of Commerce” and called for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to take action against “Republican obstructionism.”

It is no surprise that Donald Trump has not received complete loyalty and support from Republicans in Congress, as many establishment Republicans expressed their disapproval with the President from the beginning. It was the “populist” movement, and not the support of traditional Republicans, that propelled Trump to the White House.
