Ann Coulter’s fury with Trump growing daily — no punches pulled in latest rebuke

On Friday, The Blaze reported conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter posted a series of social media messages on her Twitter account criticizing President Donald Trump for failing to focus on shutting down the U.S.-Mexico border and choosing instead to prioritize issues Coulter feels should be pushed to the back of the line.

Coulter’s comments followed a speech Trump gave in Miami announcing changes to former President Barack Obama’s controversial policies governing U.S. relations with Cuba.

“I thought with Trump we’d finally have a president helping OUR country,” Coulter tweeted. “So far: Syria, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Italy, China, N Kor. Today: Cuba.”

“At least Cuba’s in our hemisphere,” Coulter wrote. “How long can it be before he gets to America?”

Right-leaning outlet Mediaite managed to get Coulter to comment on her Twitter tirade against Trump, and she didn’t hold back.

“It was a whole series today!” Coulter told Mediaite. “This jacka** is really ticking me off. And today … Cuba? F***ing Cuba? If he’d run a campaign promising to do everything he’s done in the last 6 months, he’d never have been elected.” [Quote edited for language.]

After the Mediate story was published, Coulter claimed on Twitter she didn’t intend for the quote about Trump to be published.

“I wouldn’t have cursed if I’d known [Jonathan] Levine now works at @Mediaite,” Coulter wrote. “Thought I was emailing a friend. Now you know I REALLY mean what I tweet.”

“I have half-naked photos of @LevineJonathan. (Very cute!) You’d think I could speak openly in an email to him,” Coulter wrote.

In May, Coulter penned a scathing rebuke of Trump’s failure to close the border after agreeing to pass a budget that did not include funding for a border wall.

“Apparently, Trump’s fine with no wall — and everything else in a bill straight out of George Soros’ dream journal — if only the Democrats hadn’t been so rude as to tell the public about it,” Coulter wrote. “When your main complaint is that the other side is gloating too much, maybe you’re not that great a negotiator.”

“Yeah, sure, it’s only 100 days in, it’s an artificial deadline, the media is dying to say Trump has failed and so on,” Coulter wrote.

“Except: Planning for the wall should have begun on Nov. 9, and a spade should have been put into the earth to begin building it the day after Trump’s inauguration,” Coulter added. “Now, it’s 100 days later, and we still don’t have the whisper of a prospect of a wall.”
