Ann Coulter: Trump’s amnesty deal is ‘worst day of his presidency’
President Trump is on a path to commit political suicide by agreeing to sign a clean amnesty bill, conservative pundit Ann Coulter tweeted.

The president revealed a surprising lack of negotiating skills for which he was called out by Coulter.
New York Times best-selling author and conservative columnist Coulter said “nothing” in Michael Wolff’s recent controversial book Fire and Fury could “hurt” President Trump as much as his statement on Tuesday that an amnesty for illegal immigrants would be a “bill of love”.
During a meeting at the White House on giving amnesty to some 800 000 illegals shielded from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme of the previous Obama administration, Trump called an amnesty deal a “bill of love”.
“This should be a bill of love, truly. It should be a bill of love, and we can do that,” Trump said.
“I really do believe Democrat and Republican, the people sitting in this room, really want to get something done,” Trump said.
But Coulter denounced Trump’s comments on amnesty as far worse than Wolff’s book, in which he says Trump is “worse than everybody thought”.
She tweeted: “This DACA lovefest confirms a main thesis of Michael Wolff’s book: When Bannon left. liberal Dems Jared, Ivanka, Cohn & Goldman Sachs took over.”
Trump’s announcement on amnesty is a clear U-turn from his campaign promises and pro-American immigration agenda, where he once said: “There will be no amnesty.”
President Trump said he would be willing to “take the heat” politically for a sweeping immigration deal, which could alienate his supporters.
He tweeted late on Tuesday that he still wanted “border security,” chain migration, and the diversity lottery to be part of the bill.
Another conservative analyst Mickey Kaus noted that this deal would be the end of a border wall. Democrats and Republicans have agreed that “the wall” and “border security” were interchangeable terms. Kaus said it was the “same sellout strategy” that had been tried before.
Coulter also appeared on The Larry O’Connor Show later in the day and said this is “the worst day of his presidency”.
