Coulter Rages After Trump Backs Background Checks

Talking Points Memo reports:

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter mocked President Trump on Friday for signaling support for negotiations in the House and Senate over stricter background checks for gun purchases in the wake of several mass shootings.

Coulter was an initial supporter of the president, even penning a book, “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” during the 2016 campaign, but has in subsequent years become a detractor of Trump on some issues, including border security.

Trump called for “intelligent background checks” Friday during a press conference with reporters as he left the White House, and tweeted that “serious discussions” were taking place in Congress over the issue.
