“It is not Democrats against Republicans, it is both Democrats and Republicans, it is Washington, D.C. against the people.” Ann Coulter, American Conservative Political Commentator
Ann Coulter, American conservative political commentator and author of popular titles including “In Trump We Trust” and “Resistance is Futile,” joined host Chip Franklin for a dynamic conversation about Trump’s controversial presidency and the entire institution of Washington, D.C as a whole.
The two, as expected, disagreed on several hot-button topics, including Russia’s role in election inteference, immigration policy and Trump’s conduct. Coulter believes we should be more concerned about Google than a digital invasion by the Eastern European country, that tougher borders are necessary and the commander-in-chief is, for the most part, honest with the public.
“I think he has told exactly two lies since he has been president. One is to claim bombing Syria was in America’s national security interest, and the other one is to say, which is really driving me crazy Chip, ‘We have already started the wall,’” Coulter said.
In spite of Franklin and Coulter’s different perspectives on the aforementioned matters, they were still able to find a surprising level of common ground. Both see the working class and middle class being left behind as a front-and-center issue that needs to be addressed now.
“The real rift in politics in America Trump exposed through his campaign, and for this we owe him a debt of gratitude,” Coulter told Franklin. “It isn’t Republicans versus Democrats, it is both the Republicans and Democrats against the people. They are serving the donors, they are serving Wall Street.”
She advised liberals get Trump on “the worst thing he has ever done” and leverage the fact that he has failed to follow through on his campaign promise to help the American working class rather than turning to “over-the-top attacks.”
