WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump called conservative pundit Ann Coulter a “wacky nut job” on Twitter Saturday after continued criticism from Coulter over his inability to complete a southern border wall.
“Wacky Nut Job Ann Coulter, who still hasn’t figured out that, despite all odds and an entire Democrat Party of Far Left Radicals against me (not to mention certain Republicans who are sadly unwilling to fight), I am winning on the Border. Major sections of Wall are being built,” he wrote on Twitter, “and renovated, with MUCH MORE to follow shortly. Tens of thousands of illegals are being apprehended (captured) at the Border and NOT allowed into our Country. With another President, millions would be pouring in. I am stopping an invasion as the Wall gets built.”

“This is not Paul Ryan’s fault. It’s not Mitch McConnell’s fault. Trump ran AGAINST the GOP and won. Responsibility is 100% his,” she wrote on Twitter Feb. 15, the same day Trump declared a national emergency.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did damage control after Trump brushed aside Coulter’s criticism while declaring the national emergency.
“I don’t think Ann Coulter has any influence over this White House or influence over much of anything, to be honest. I don’t think she did before the president became the president, I don’t think she does now. I just don’t see her as being an influential voice in this country, and certainly not one in this building,” Sanders told Fox News host Dana Perino on Feb. 15.
Trump’s Saturday tweet claiming millions would be “pouring in” over the U.S.-Mexico border under another president came days after Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified before Congress. Illegal arrivals at the southern border are expected to hit 1 million by the end of fiscal year 2019, Nielsen told members of Congress in prepared remarks Wednesday.
The U.S.-Mexico border is nearly 2,000 miles long, and about 650 miles of barriers like fencing or walls can be found in certain stretches along the border. Trump secured about $1.6 billion for border protection, but it is “primarily for fortifying existing border fencing, not expanding the current wall,” reported NPR.
