On Saturday, President Trump sent out two tweets slamming political commentator and author Ann Coulter:
Wacky Nut Job @AnnCoulter, 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...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 9, 2019
....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. #MAGA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 9, 2019
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.
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.
