Conservative commentator Ann Coulter railed against Donald Trump on Tuesday after the White House suggested that the president wanted a comprehensive immigration reform bill from Congress.
Coulter supported Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, partially because of his hardline stance on immigration. At a White House briefing Tuesday, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump wanted to see Congress come up with a broad immigration bill that addressed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, among other things.
"This is something that needs to be fixed legislatively and we have confidence that they’re going to do that," Sanders said, adding that more than just small tweaks were needed.
Coulter blasted the president on Twitter, claiming he was walking back on his campaign promises.
