Pence Responds to Trump Criticism from Coulter, Tucker Carlson: We’re ‘Committed’ to Promises


Both Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson publicly slammed President Trump yesterday over his public meeting on immigration, and today Vice President Mike Pence responded.

To recap: Coulter called the meeting a “DACA lovefest” before later declaring it to be the “lowest day” of Trump’s presidency. Carlson, meanwhile, was stunned by what seemed like Trump abandoning one of the biggest issues people supported him on, asking, “What was the point of running for president?”

On Fox News’ The Story tonight, Martha MacCallum noted the criticisms from her colleague and Coulter and said, “Some of the President’s biggest supporters when it comes to immigration… were really––felt very betrayed by what the President said at that table yesterday, that he sort of gave the farm away on the issue.”

“They felt,” she added, “that the issue of the wall and creating a border that is impenetrable and sending people back who are here illegally was swept away with that discussion yesterday.”

Pence responded thusly:

“Nothing could be further from the truth. The President made that clear a little later in the day, that––this President, this administration, are absolutely committed to keep the promises we made to the American people.”

He emphasized that there will be “no DACA fix without a wall.”
