At first she thought Donald Trump's seeming policy shift on immigration was a "mistake," but when the Republican nominee returned to his bold stance Thursday night, Ann Coulter praised the address as "magnificent."

Following the immigration speech in Arizona, Coulter took to Twitter to compare the billionaire's comments to former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, adding that it's "the most magnificent speech ever given."

Coulter, author of the new book, "In Trump We Trust," voiced frustration last month for Trump's apparent softening on his immigration reform plan that won him significant support in the GOP primaries, calling the shift a "mistake" and the peddling of "tired talking points."

In fact, in her book, she wrote that there is nothing Trump can do that cannot be forgiven, "except change his immigration policies." So when Trump seemed to return to his hardline stance Wednesday night in Phoenix, the ardent Trump supporter celebrated the speech.

She liked it so much, Coulter tweeted she may start watching the speech "every night before going to bed so that I will sleep like a baby."

The speech — and Coulter's remarks — came the same day Trump met with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. Trump said he did not discuss his call for Mexico to pay for the border wall along the southern U.S. border, a key tenet of the GOP nominee's platform. Nieto, for his part, said he insisted "at the start of the conversation" his country would not fund the wall.
