Ann Coulter thinks it’s a “mistake” for Donald Trumpto soften his stance on immigration.
Coulter has been one of Trump’s most fervent supporters, particularly for his strident stance on immigration. She said his recent indications that he could moderate on the issue sounded to her like “tired talking points.”
She appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball Tuesday evening, where Chris Matthews asked her to weigh in on recent remarks from Trump in which he admitted that he was considering “softening” his policies on immigration. “We’re not looking to hurt people,” Trump had said.
Coulter said Trump’s comments “sounded very consultant to me,” adding, “This could be the shortest book tour ever if he’s really softening his position on immigration.” Her latest book is entitled In Trump We Trust.
“I don’t think he is” softening, she added.
“I think this is a mistake. It sounds like it’s coming from consultants,” she said. “I’ve thought he’s made other mistakes, and I’ve given him constructive criticism when I think he makes a mistake. I think this is a mistake.”
For instance, Coulter was fiercely critical of Trump’s choice of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, a move she said was “Trump’s first mistake.”
