President Trump today branded former ally Ann Coulter a “Wacky Nut Job” — less than a month after insisting he did not follow the conservative commentator and blamed journalists for exaggerating her influence over White House decision-making.

Coulter is an immigration hard-liner and a big supporter of Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but she has been critical of Trump because the wall has not yet been built.

Coulter, who once wrote a book entitled “In Trump We Trust,” tweeted early this morning that the people who voted for Trump aren’t getting what they want.

 

 

She tweeted Friday questioning whether Trump actually wants to stop “the invasion,” referring to people entering the country at the southern border.

 

 

Coulter in recent months has emerged as one of Trump’s most vehement antagonists among right-wing media figures who urged the administration not to cede ground to Democrats in negotiations for funding the construction of a border wall separating the U.S. and Mexico.

She is scheduled to speak at a public affairs luncheon on Monday in Palm Beach, Florida — near the site of Trump’s expansive Mar-a-Lago resort, where the president is in residence until Sunday.

This evening, addressing “Wacky Nut Job” Coulter, Trump responded he’s “winning on the Border” and that major sections of the U.S.-Mexico border wall are being built and renovated with more to come.

He also tweaked “certain Republicans” for being “sadly unable to fight.”

 

 

 

 

Trump in February declared a national emergency that allowed him to divert funding allocated to other projects to put toward a border wall after signing a House spending bill that offered him significantly less money than he wanted for the wall.

After Trump declared the national emergency, Coulter responded with, “The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.”

During a February news conference in the White House Rose Garden to announce his decision to invoke emergency powers, Trump insisted that conservative media figures “don’t decide policy,” singling out Coulter and praising Fox News personalities including Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson, as well as radio host Rush Limbaugh.

“Ann Coulter, I don’t know her. I hardly know her. I haven’t spoken to her in way over a year. But the press loves saying ‘Ann Coulter.’ Probably if I did speak to her she’d be very nice. I just don’t have the time to speak to her,” Trump said.

Trump also said Coulter was “off the reservation,” adding: “But anybody that knows her understands that. But I haven’t spoken to her. I don’t follow her. I don’t talk to her. But the press loves to bring up the name Ann Coulter.”
