Conservative political commentator Ann Coulter predicted in a Wednesday interview with radio host Mark Simone that President Donald Trump will ultimately relent on his demands for a border wall.
From Daily Caller:
“The president and I have had a little tiff,” Coulter stated, according to Mediaite. “For one thing, he actually did shut down the government — though don’t worry, he will fold in the end.”
She later added, “If he doesn’t build the wall, the next president will be a Democrat.”
The same day as the interview, Trump was scheduled to meet with congressional leaders in an attempt to come to a resolution to end the partial government shutdown. The shutdown is centered around the president’s demand for over $5 billion to fund wall that would be built along the southern border. The Democrats have offered $1.6 billion for “border security” on the condition that the money would not be used for a wall.
Last month, when the Trump administration moved to avoid a government shutdown over the wall, Coulter told TheDC, “Either Trump never intended to build a wall and was scamming voters from the beginning or he hasn’t the first idea in how to get it done and no interest in finding out.”
