President Trump officially unfollowed Ann Coulter on Wednesday after months of withering criticism she has leveled against him, primarily over the lack of progress on his promised wall along the Mexican border.
The unfollow happened at 7:40 p.m ET, without fanfare and was memorialized by the always watching “TrumpAlert” bot that follows the Trump family’s activity on Twitter in real time.
“At least he read the column,” Coulter told TheWrap in an emailed response to the news, with a link to her latest attack on Trump.
“His business is convincing people with lowbrow taste to give him their money,” she said. “Either Trump never intended to build the wall and was scamming voters all along, or he has no idea how to get it done and zero interest in finding out.”
“In the end, we’ll probably find out ‘wall’ was Trump’s ‘safe word’ with Stormy Daniels. It’s just something he blurts out whenever he’s in trouble,” Coulter added.
Though she has lately leveled ferocious criticism of the billionaire, Coulter ratcheted up the rhetoric to a new level on Wednesday after telling various media outlets that Trump’s unwillingness to shut down the government over the wall would not only doom a second term, but would probably make him unable to finish his first term.
“Outside of the Fox News Xmas party, he’s bleeding supporters and the barbarians are at the gates,” Coulter told TheWrap in an email. “The details about Stormy and Cohen … are creepy, even if not criminal. Trump voters are exhausted. If he gives them no reason to fight for him, they won’t.”
Dumping Coulter is a risky move for Trump as she represents his most die-hard supporters. Long one of his biggest backers, she has written two books in support of the billionaire and was once rewarded for her loyalty with a free membership to Mar-a-Lago.
