Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said Wednesday that she won’t vote to reelect President Trump if no progress has been made on the U.S.-Mexico border wall by 2020.
The Hill reports:
In a podcast interview with The Daily Caller, Coulter blasted the Trump presidency, saying it will have been a “joke” without the wall.
“Why would you [vote for him again]?” she said. “To make sure, I don’t know, Ivanka [Trump] and Jared [Kushner] can make money? That seems to be the main point of the presidency at this point.”
“They’re about to have a country where no Republican will ever be elected president again,” she added. “Trump will just have been a joke presidency who scammed the American people, amused the populists for a while, but he’ll have no legacy whatsoever.”
Her comments come as Trump battles with lawmakers over legislation to fund the government through the end of the year.
Trump previously threatened a government shutdown if a spending bill did not include $5 billion to pay for the border wall, but the White House backed down from those demands on Tuesday.
Democratic and Republican leaders are currently in the process of hammering out a deal on a stopgap measure to fund the government through Feb. 8, though the details have not yet been announced.
Coulter, who wrote a book titled “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” in 2016 before souring on the presidency, has criticized Trump for lack of action on immigration, including saying in August: “I’ve never seen such a bad dealmaker.”
