President-elect Donald Trump is apparently losing his luster, according to conservative political commentator Ann Coulter.

Coulter, one of Trump's biggest supporters, made headlines throughout the campaign season for her controversial remarks on immigration policy, with some criticizing her for being racist and xenophobic.

Coulter, who has made it clear her staunch support of Trump was mostly contingent on his hard stance against illegal immigration, expressed that she wasn't so hopeful her candidate of choice would follow through on his promises. She sent out a tweet on Friday expressing her discontentment with Trump, who doesn't take office until January.

On the other hand, Coulter has been a regular critic of both Vice President-elect Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, both of whom are considered untrustworthy on immigration issues. When rumors first ciculated that Pence would be Trump's VP pick, Coulter tweeted:

Today, referencing an interview between Mike Pence and CBS anchor Scott Pelley — in which Pence indicated that he was ready to work with Paul Ryan on an immigration bill — Coulter commented, "it sounds like the big sell-out is coming."

She added, "If Trump sells out, it's not our fault."

See the tweet below:

Coulter made headlines throughout the campaign season for her racially charged remarks, including her comment that Trump would win in a 50-state landslide "if only people with at least 4 grandparents born in America were voting."

She also said in August 2015, "There’s a cultural acceptance of child rape in Latino culture that doesn’t exist in even the most dysfunctional American ghettos. When it comes to child rape, the whole family gets involved."

When Trump was rumored to be considering South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley for Secretary of State, Coulter tweeted:

But she has defended her remarks in the past, saying, "There’s nothing racist about anything I say. To be pro-American is racist?”
