Conservative pundit Ann Coulter is predicting the end of Donald Trump’s hegemony in the GOP, saying the former president “is done.” “Trump is done,” Coulter, a onetime Trump booster turned critic, wrote in an email to The New York Times. “You guys should stop obsessing over him.” Reporting by The Hill

Coulter’s comments came in an article published in the Times on Sunday about the mounting tensions between Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) amid speculation of a potential showdown for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

What made her change her mind so quickly about former President Trump? After all, she did write a book “In Trump We Trust”, was she just riding the wave? There are so many questions to be asked about why she turned on former President Trump.

Coulter has been a vocal supporter of Trump throughout his presidency, even authoring a book in 2017 titled “In Trump we trust”. But the conservative commentator has recently grown critical of the president, blasting him for his “amnesty” policies on immigration and his failure to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

In 2019 just days from being a year old conservative media commentator Ann Coulter, The conservative media commentator has repeatedly antagonized the president for failing to erect a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border during his two years in office. “Trump proposes amnesty. We voted for Trump and got Jeb!”

   Ann Coulter tweeted: “100 miles of border wall in exchange for amnestying millions of illegals. So if we grant citizenship to a BILLION foreigners, maybe we can finally get a full border wall. Trump proposes amnesty. We voted for Trump and got Jeb!”   Reported 1’19/2021 politico.com

For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.

At its core, the dispute amounts to a stand-in for the broader challenge confronting Republicans at the outset of midterm elections. They are led by a defeated former President who demands total fealty, tolerates no criticism, and is determined to sniff out, and then snuff out, any threat to his control of the party.

That includes DeSantis, who has told friends he believes Trump’s expectation that he bend the knee is asking too much. That refusal has set up a generational clash and a test of loyalty in the de facto capital of today’s GOP, one watched by Republicans elsewhere who’ve ridden to power on Trump’s coattails. Already, party figures are attempting to calm matters.

Is Ann Coulter a rhino? Will we be seeing a showdown of DeSantis and Trump leading up to 2024? Will Ann Coulter start campaigning for DeSantis on her show? This is becoming one wild ride, which I think we will all be seeing sooner rather than later.

God Bless America, God Bless the Veterans
