The FOX Business Networkâ€™s Stuart Varney proposed that President Trumpâ€™s tweeting on issues like the transgender ban distract from accomplishing items on the Republican agenda such as health care reform and job creation.
Although â€œIn Trump We Trustâ€ author Ann Coulter agreed that the transgender ban tweet was a distraction, she viewed it differently, telling Varney: â€œIt was a good distraction for something I wasnâ€™t very happy with the president overâ€¦his tweets about the attorney general, the greatest member of the Trump administration.â€
According to Coulter, there was a political motive behind Trumpâ€™s transgender ban tweet.
â€œIn order to get the funding through for the wall, it was being held up by conservatives â€“ or I would of thought you know sane humans â€“ in the Senate who donâ€™t want taxpayers like you and me paying for these lengthy transgender operations, years of therapy.â€
Coulter then weighed in on the medical issues that used to prevent people from being able to enlist in the military.
â€œI mean, for Peteâ€™s sake, you canâ€™t get into the military, or used to not be able to get into the military, who knows now, if you had asthma, psoriasis, attention deficit disorder, but weâ€™re going to bring in people with an extremely peculiar and rare mental illness...and have the taxpayers pay for it.â€
Coulter believes the tweet was ultimately a win for Trump, saying, â€œTrump gets to go out against absurd political correctness and get funding for his wall, so I loved those tweets.â€
