President Trump said he’s not sure what he did to draw the ire of conservative commentator Ann Coulter, who called him a “wimp” after he signed a bill that would reopen the government but does not include funding for his border wall.
The New York Post reports:
“I hear she’s become very hostile,” the president told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Sunday. “Maybe I didn’t return her phone call or something.”
Trump last Friday signed legislation that would end the 35-day partial government shutdown for three weeks while negotiations continue over his demand that Congress authorize $5.7 billion for the wall.
Coulter in a tweet accused him of caving in to Democrats.
“Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States,” she wrote last Friday.
Coulter, previously a staunch ally who even wrote a book called “In Trump We Trust,” said in an interview Friday evening that Trump lied when he pledged during the 2016 presidential campaign that he would build a wall and Mexico would pay for it.
“He promised something for 18 months, and he lied about it,” she said on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
