Ann Coulter suggested vigilante violence in response to President Donald Trump’s apparent flip-flop on immigration.
The right-wing provocateur appeared last week on the Fox Radio program hosted by Todd Starnes, where she called for the president’s removal from office one way or another, reported Right Wing Watch.
“We have made as clear as you can possibly make it, we want less immigration,” Coulter said. “Stop dumping the third world on the country.”
She said the president had been elected because of his harsh anti-immigration policies, which she helped shape, and she called for action by “Second Amendment people,” as Trump termed gun advocates during the campaign.
“If he continues down this path, well I guess there are three options,” Coulter said. “There’s the organizing the death squads for the people who ruined America, because there will be no more hope.”
She paused a moment before offering two other possible options.
“I guess the other possibility is to, well, I don’t think anyone would mind him being impeached,” Coulter added. “What’s the faction opposing that? And then at least we’ll get Mike Pence. But in terms of saving America, maybe a third party.”
Coulter made strikingly similar remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2014, where she warned Republicans not to support immigration reform.
“If you pass amnesty that’s it, it’s over, and then we organize the death squads for the people that wrecked America,” Coulter said three years ago.
Trump’s new chief of staff Mark Meadows already facing damaging leaks from White House staffers
President Donald Trump's new White House chief of staff is already in hot water after just a couple of weeks on the job.
Mark Meadows, who resigned from Congress in late March to begin work in the White House, quickly pushed out legislative liaison Mike McKenna and then replaced press secretary Stephanie Grisham -- and other aides could soon be on their way out, reported Bloomberg.
The North Carolina Republican has also ruffled feathers by calling Republican governors who have resisted issuing stay-at-home orders and asking them to do so immediately, according to two people familiar with the calls.
Trump’s hopes for a rapid economic recovery are likely a pipe dream: economists
President Donald Trump is hoping to reopen the American economy in May and quickly get back to the low unemployment rates that he used to justify his claim that he'd created the "best economy" in history.
However, economists who spoke with Vox think that Trump's vision of a rapid V-shaped economic recovery amid the COVID-19 pandemic are simply a pipe dream.
"The very best case scenario is we rapidly bounce back and we get close to something where we were before," said Jesse Edgerton, an economist at JPMorgan. "Personally, I think that’s highly unlikely. The shock from the virus is going to trigger a broader economy-wide recession."
Trump tells 10,000 religious leaders they ‘have to’ help him get re-elected: ‘We have to have victory’
President Donald Trump in a private conference call on Wednesday with 10,000 leaders from his most-devoted base, the religious right, in the middle of a global pandemic, urged them to help him win re-election.
“We have a very, very powerful year coming up because you know what lies ahead,” Trump told the faith leaders, as NBC News reported. “And we have to do it. People of faith have to do it. We have to have victory.”
Rev. Johnnie Moore, a member of Trump’s religious right inner circle, says both the President and Vice President were on the call, which presumably was made from the Oval Office.
