Coulter: ‘The People’ Want Trump For President
Ann Coulter spoke to me Friday night just before attending a dinner headlining Donald Trump in Los Angeles. She said Trump is now the one “the people” want to be President in 2016.
I confronted Ann with comments she once made about Trump in which she called him “a clown.” Ann replied that “now he is magnificent” and “we all make mistakes.” Ann also said that she’s happy Trump is pushing immigration to the forefront of the 2016 race, and she expressed her disappointment in Republicans who she said only get tough on immigration during an election cycle.
I also challenged her contention that, because of crime rates among undocumented immigrants in California, there is a huge problem with the undocumented. She uses one state to make a case, when nationally, the crime rate among the undocumented is not higher than among the general American population. She conveniently doesn’t include in her numbers border states like Texas and Arizona.
