Two of Donald Trump’s most high profile supporters may already be regretting their decision.
Both Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin criticized the president-elect on Friday, following months of staunchly supporting his election.
“Sounds like the big sell-out is coming. Oh well. The voters did what we could,” Coulter tweeted Friday. “If Trump sells out, it’s not our fault.”
Coulter appears to be angry over Trump backing off his campaign promise to build a wall around the United States as part of his immigration policy.
Instead, vice president-elect Mike Pence stated he and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan would be the ones spearheading immigration.
Coulter also expressed displeasure at Trump’s pick of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, a Republican who had publicly criticized Trump, as the next UN Ambassador.
“After Nikki Haley, I expect @realDonaldTrump’s next cabinet pick to be Obama,” she said on Twitter. “Both used State of Union address this year to attack Trump.”
Meanwhile, Palin is mad about Trump’s plan to keep air conditioning plant Carrier in the United States by giving the company a multi-million-dollar tax incentive.
“When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent,” the former Alaska governor wrote in an op-ed on the website Young Conservatives.
“Republicans oppose this, remember?” she continued. “Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is one big fail.”
Palin had been reported to be in consideration for an appointment as Secretary of Veteran Affairs — though the timing of this op-ed may diminish her chances of joining the Trump administration
