In an interview with FNC's Dana Perino, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders dismissed the idea that Ann Coulter had any influence in the White House. Coulter, the author of "In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome," strongly denounced the president's decision to sign a compromise border security bill and declare a national emergency on Twitter and in a radio interview on Friday.
Pres. Trump on Ann Coulter, right-wing commentator who has been critical of the president's actions on immigration: "I don't know her. I hardly know her...I just don't have the time to speak to her."— ABC News (@ABC) February 15, 2019

Now you know: Trump's "national emergency" ruse was always just a way to fool the rubes in his base. https://t.co/o38xLsJ5Ch— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) February 15, 2019
No, the goal of a national emergency is for Trump to scam the stupidest people in his base for 2 more years. https://t.co/6DQSkqxV8h— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) February 15, 2019
This is not Paul Ryan’s fault. It’s not Mitch McConnell’s fault. Trump ran AGAINST the GOP and won. Responsibility is 100% his.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) February 15, 2019
"I don’t think Ann Coulter has any influence over this White House, or influence over much of anything, to be honest. I don’t think she did before the president became the president. I don’t think she does now. I just don’t see her as being an influential voice in this country, and certainly not one in this building," Sanders said.
