Ann Coulter Couldn't Be More Wrong - Trump Is No Wimp On The Wall

Trump help build the wall











The announcement that President Trump would sign a bill to temporarily reopen those parts of the government shut down in the dispute over funding the desperately needed security measures on our southern border brought forth uncalled for howls of protest from some of the President’s earliest supporters.

Ann Coulter ripped into the president on Twitter for cutting a deal with Democrats to temporarily end the partial government shutdown without funding for his border wall. “There’s no question but that Nancy Pelosi got the better of Donald Trump,” said Coulter, who later trashed the President as “the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States."

Coulter was not only completely over-the-top in her criticism of the President, she was dead wrong about who the biggest wimps are in Washington – and President Trump is not among them.

The biggest wimps in Washington are the Republican leaders on Capitol Hill, who are the real reason we find ourselves in the stand-off over funding the much-needed security enhancements to our southern border.

Conservatives who are frustrated with the President should never forget that it was former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who set up this post-election funding mess.

It was also establishment Republican leaders in the House who blew the 2018 midterm election and lost the majority to Nancy Pelosi and her Far-Left Democrats.

Trump is merely playing the hand Ryan and McConnell dealt him – and playing it well.

What’s more, a lot of the calls for Trump to keep the government shut are coming from our friends who just like the idea of shutting down parts of the federal government – it has nothing to do with the Wall or President Trump’s negotiating strategy.

Coulter and other critics of the President’s decision to sign the three-week funding bill have conveniently skipped over the fact that the deal requires lawmakers to form a bipartisan conference committee to begin negotiating border security.

The President met with a number of conservative leaders over the past week or so and they have universally reported to us that he has said unequivocally that the Wall is going to be built, but that he is going to play things out with Congress first.

This squares with what the President said when he agreed to the bill temporarily ending the shutdown; if the committee doesn't provide funds for a wall, he will declare a national emergency to end the gridlock in Congress and move to build one.

“This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!” he tweeted Friday.

“We’ll work with the Democrats and negotiate and if we can’t do that, then we’ll do — obviously we’ll do the emergency because that’s what it is. It’s a national emergency,” he told reporters at the White House earlier in that day.

The Pentagon has confirmed it is preparing options to build barriers on the southern border in the event that President Trump declares a national emergency there, the latest indication such a move is gaining traction within the administration.

"The Department of Defense is reviewing available authorities and funding mechanisms to identify options to enable border barrier construction," Navy Capt. Bill Speaks, a Pentagon spokesman said a couple of weeks ago. "As there has not been such a declaration made, it would be inappropriate to comment further on those efforts."

Naturally, Capitol Hill’s establishment Republicans are already starting to squirrel on the idea of a declaration of national emergency to build the wall.

Senators Grassley and Collins have come out against the idea and Senator Marco Rubio said on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” that he would oppose an effort by President Trump to declare a national emergency to construct a wall along the southern border, calling the prospect a "terrible idea."

As we see it, the case for an emergency declaration is incontrovertible and the President has both the authority and the justification for such an emergency declaration if Congress remains gridlocked.

Ann Coulter couldn't be more wrong - Trump is no wimp.

Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter has worn out her welcome. A perfect example of how Good is sacrificed at the altar of Perfect.

Why Have Faith in Trump on Wall?

Mr. Rasley, I sympathize with your position but I cannot agree; Trump was indeed forced into reopening the government (by Republicans, I am certain, who were probably ready to jump ship on the issue out of craven cowardice) but what cards are in Trump's hand now? They aren't going to allow him to shut the government down again, and if he tries to use a state of emergency an Obama judge will stop him within half an hour of his announcement. We can kiss the wall goodbye. And I fear Trump's Presidency too.

By the way, it's all RINO Republicans on the Commission. What do you think we will get from the likes of Roy Blunt, John Hoeven, Richard Shelby, Shelley Moore Capito? None of these people have the slightest desire for a border wall.

This is a complete capitulation on the part of the Trump and will likely end his Presidency.

I see no way Trump can win. He cannot shut the government down again. And he will fail if he declares a state of emergency. He should have closed the government when the Republicans were in power to force THEM. It's the GOP who have stuck it to Trump - and America.

I understand your desire to be positive, but we must not shrink from an unpleasant reality. Pelosi owns Trump now. Had he hung the shutdown around her neck it would have been different, but he gave up too early. It was a fatal mistake.

Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter is the wimp. She wasn't missing any paychecks. She is now a RINO of the worst kind. I will not listen to any thing she says anymore

Trumps plan

Coulter is very quick to jump the gun with any little thing she doesn't like However, despite it looking like he caved to Pelosi I believe Trump just pulled a stunt in order to expose the Wicked Witch and Schumer as completely dishonest. He knows that Pelosi will never go along with a wall because it will kill the democrats use of allowing illegal immigrants to vote which is very apparent. With the government open as Pelosi wanted she and Schumer will still not negotiate in good faith. They never had any intension to do so. So he will do what he said he would if that happens; he will pull the plug and will declare a national emergency using the two democrat obstructionists as the reason proving he made every effort to work with the democrats. This will make them look like the Anti-Americans they both are.
