Listen as Larry spoke with Ann Coulter, author of In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!, regarding President Trump’s bipartisan meeting on immigration.
During the interview, O’Connor asked for Coulter’s immediate reaction to the meeting:
O’Connor: Ann, what do you make of your President. He trusts the people in that room. He will sign whatever they come up with.
Coulter: I think it was the worst day in his presidency so far and particularly with this Michael Wolff book out, I mean, it confirms all of the worst things White House staff told Michael Wolff about Trump. That it’s all about him, he cares about his press, he’s trying to distract from the book, and weirdly ends up confirming it, he seems to have no grasps of the details, he agrees with whatever the last person who speaks has said… I mean when he agreed with DiFi on a standalone Dreamer bill, and you know, the hardcore tough on immigration guy in the room has to be Kevin McCarthy, who use to be ‘open borders’ Kevin McCarthy, to point out to the President that no what DiFi just said was that she wants just a Dreamer bill and nothing else and no border security… He shouldn’t talk about immigration unless Stephen Miller is there to follow up on everything he says. But I mean if this goes through, sorry for you and your kids, you have a job talking about politics it will be irrelevant and the nation your children will live in is one I am glad I will not be around to see.
O’Connor also asked Coulter if she felt betrayed by President Trump’s latest thoughts on immigration reform:
O’Connor: Ann, you were the earliest, most passionate and frankly most effective, advocate for then candidate Trump, do you feel betrayed by this today? Do you think that the President has betrayed the people who supported him and has he betrayed his own promises?
Coulter: Ah, yes. Yeah..I mean it’s a slow train coming. I’ve been warning against this since he was first putting together his transition team which would consisted of his son-in-law, his daughter, half of Goldman Sachs… Do you know Donald Trump has more employees from Goldman Sachs than any other President?
O’Connor: I had not heard that.
Coulter: It’s unbelievable. Nobody voted for this. I mean the big response to Steve Bannon this week has been, ‘Nobody voted for Steve Bannon…” I agree with that, I completely agree with that, they voted for Donald Trump. But I’m pretty sure they didn’t vote for Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump either and as Michael Wolff described in his book, Bannon wasn’t one with more on a lot of stuff, I didn’t like his Tea Party stuff but as Michael Wolff described in the book, the end of Bannon meant this was a family affair. That was not what anybody was voting for.
Author and conservative commentator Ann Coulter denounced President Trump’s apparent willingness to make a deal to allow so-called DREAMers to remain in the country.
Trump met at the White House on Tuesday with top Democrats and Republicans, prodding them to come to an agreement on a border wall and a fix for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients as part of comprehensive immigration reform.
Coulter called out Trump for seemingly wavering on a wall and for expressing a willingness to work with Democrats on DACA. [Read More]
