Conservative commentator Ann Coulter had a warning for Republicans, who said they could work with Clinton: you’re traitors. In an interview with The Washington Examiner, they mention Rep. Steve King’s remarks while on the stump, where he said that he could work with Hillary Clinton, though he’s definitely voting for Trump in the general come November:
Any Republican who says he can work with Hillary Clinton is a traitor to the nation," she said. "It's finished."
Coulter, author of the new book In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!, told the Examiner the U.S. and the GOP are both "over" if Clinton wins.
"They're whistling past the grave yard," she said. "It's not just the GOP, it's the country. It's over. It was fun while it lasted but the country is finished. She and [vice presidential nominee] Tim Kaine have vowed to push through amnesty. … You grant amnesty, there will be a rush for a border. … It's over. It's over if she's elected. … Go to a Cubs game and see how many people are in the stands because when you can't win, nobody cares anymore."
Well, there may not be amnesty, but Trump does seem open to supporting earned legal status, illegals paying back taxes, and deporting ones with criminal records. You know, what Jeb Bush was advocating when he was running for president. It’s no shock that Coulter is unhappy with Trump’s possible pivot on immigration, an issue that catapulted him to frontrunner status and eventually nabbed him the Republican nomination. She said such a move would be a mistake. Still, if Trump loses, I doubt members on the Hill will worry about the wrath of Ann Coulter.
Frankly, I can see some outreach here. It’s not totally insane to work with the president on issues where you find agreement. I would be more vexed at those Republicans who have endorsed Clinton this cycle. Endorsing Lady Macbeth is move I can never understand.
Last Note: Here's what King said about Clinton, thanks to The Des Moines Register:
“I’ve sat across the table with Hillary Clinton eye-to-eye, and when you’re working outside of staff and outside of the press she is somebody I can work with,” King said during a speech at The Des Moines Register’s Political Soapbox at the Iowa State Fair.
