Ann Coulter predicts Trump will be the last Republican president

Two years after the release of her book In Trump We Trust, Ann Coulter no longer trusts President Trump.

The conservative commentator went off on Trump Wednesday for appearing to back off his demand for $5 billion to fund his proposed border wall; the White House said earlier in the day it's open to signing a spending bill extending current budgets until February, whereas Trump had previously threatened to let the government shut down if he didn't get the border wall funding he wanted.

As a result, Coulter told The Daily Caller that either Trump "never intended" to build the wall at all, or he has "absolutely no idea how to get it done." Either way, if the wall isn't built, she concludes his presidency will have been a "joke" and he will have "scammed the American people," ultimately leaving "no legacy whatsoever." And at this point, she thinks it's pretty unlikely the wall gets built, saying "increasingly few" supporters believe him when he promises to do so.

Coulter also said that she won't vote for Trump in 2020 if there's no progress on the wall by then, as there would be no reason other than so "Ivanka [Trump] and Jared [Kushner] can make money," which "seems to be the main point of the presidency at this point." But she's not even sure Trump will make it that far. "My prediction is his support will evaporate and Trump will very likely not finish his term and definitely not be elected to a second term," she said, also forecasting that "no Republican will ever be elected president again."
