Although âIn Trump We Trustâ author Ann Coulter agreed that the transgender ban tweet was a distraction, she viewed it differently, telling Varney: âIt was a good distraction for something I wasnât 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 Trumpâs transgender ban tweet.
âIn 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 donât 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.
âI mean, for Peteâs sake, you canât 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 weâre 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, âTrump gets to go out against absurd political correctness and get funding for his wall, so I loved those tweets.â
