President Trump has responded to Ann Coulter over her criticism of how he is handling the border crisis. The president even gave her a nickname.

According to The Daily Wire:

On Saturday, President Trump sent out two tweets slamming political commentator and author Ann Coulter:

 

Coulter was previously a champion of the president, even writing a book prior to his election titled, "In Trump We Trust." However, her position on Trump has soured over the course of his first two years in office due to his failure to keep his signature promise, which was the construction of a wall along the southern border of the United States.

On Friday, Coulter tweeted: "Proposed topic for next week's column: Does Trump Want to Stop the Invasion?" This might have been the reason for the president’s tweet against Coulter.

On January 25, following a government shutdown that lasted a record 35 days, President Trump signed a spending bill that would fund the government for three weeks. On February 15, the president signed another spending bill that provided just $1.375 billion for border security, more than $4 billion shy of his prior demands.

President Trump has asked for over $8 billion in additional funding in the next budget, but it is unlikely the Democrat-controlled House will allow for it which could set up another shutdown.
