Appearing on "Fox Business" on Tuesday, author and controversialist Ann Coulter criticized Republicans for allegedly helping Democrats hinder the Trump administration agenda. This includes, she said, President Trump's nominations before the Senate and the elimination of Obamacare. Speaking to host Stuart Varney on "Varney & Co.", Coulter expressed disappointment that Trump has encountered obstructionists within his own party.
“A lot of them really, really hate Trump every bit as much as MSNBC does and they’re slow-walking everything and they are not helping him," Coulter said of Capitol Hill Republicans. He called out Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC), who has placed a hold on Trump's nominee to direct the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Tillis and other Republicans want to see approval for foreign guest workers with the argument that H-2B visas (for example, for foreign-born engineers) to fill jobs that Americans supposedly do not want.
Coulter called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to take action against "Republican obstructionism" to Trump initiatives. She added that Tillis is seeking "a bunch more cheap foreign workers for the Chamber of Commerce." She then said that McConnell and other Republicans should be called out for the alleged obstructionism. Coulter has criticized the Trump administration in the past for not advancing on the promised border wall.
