Juan Williams on Trump Sending Military to Border: He’s ‘Upset’ Ann Coulter’s Attacking Him

On Fox News’ The Five today, Juan Williams said that one of the driving reasons behind President Trump‘s recent immigration moves is clearly Ann Coulter.

The co-hosts were talking about President Trump‘s plan to send National Guard troops to the border. As Williams teed off on this move, Jesse Watters said, “The border patrol workers are the only government workers you don’t support!”

Williams brought up the FBI and CIA agents “belittled by this President” before making this point:

“What we have here is a President who is desperate. I think he’s so upset by Ann Coulter’s attacking him for his failure to build a wall or to gain funding for a wall that now he says, ‘You know what? Now I’m gonna send troops.'”

Kimberly Guilfoyle said it’s so ridiculous to call Coulter “Helen of Troy” and that the President “got so upset with Ann Coulter being upset” that he is sending the military to the border in response.

Williams countered that Coulter’s clearly a sign to Trump about what his base thinks.

And in case you’re wondering how Coulter feels about today’s news:
