‘Donald Trump not trigger-happy Republican of old’. Interview of Ann Coulter on Russia Today.
In the Republican debates this year, every Republican aside from Trump wanted to start wars in the Middle East, as well as Russia.
Immigration is the big issue this time around:
RT: Are you comfortable where Trump stands on immigration? Will he deport 11 million illegals in the US?
AC: Well, there are a lot more than 11 million, as I explained more fully in my last book. There are probably at least 30, 40 or 50 million. They will be subject to deportation if they get arrested, if they go into collect government assistance. Obviously the criminals that aren’t being deported now will be deported. He’ll build the wall. Nobody has said it’s going to be done the first week, the first year, even the first term…
RT: Why do you think Trump is leading by 20 per cent with independent voters?
AC: I think it really is the people against all the pundits. Trump is not going to carry Washington DC; he is probably not going to carry the Upper East Side of Manhattan. But he’s popular with ordinary people, and ordinary people of all races. I really like that he is getting away from the ‘ethnic identity’ politics into more of the ‘economic identity’ politics. He keeps saying, as he did in his immigration speech last week, which is the most important, and it is amazing that this is a stunning position to take. The loadstar of the immigration debate will be: “Is it good for Americans?” All of New York City went mental, but I think most voters are saying: “Yeah, why shouldn’t it be? It’s just government policy.”
