In yet another example of the dissension in the Republican ranks, President #Donald Trump has broken from the GOP and cut a deal with the Democrats on a debt ceiling increase, DACA, and other government-related issues. In response, long-time Trump supporter and conservative author, #Ann Coulter, has responded and she is not too happy [VIDEO] with the commander in chief.

Trump and the Dems

When Donald Trump kicked off his campaign for president [VIDEO], he did so by piling on all 16 of his Republican primary opponents. The former host of "The Apprentice" even took time to give many of the other challengers a special nickname.

Whether it was "Little" Marco Rubio, "Low Energy" Jeb Bush, or "Lyin'" Ted Cruz, Trump ripped into anyone he had could to make his case as the best choice to become the GOP nominee. Despite the negative stigma attached to him, Trump was able to weather the storm and become the nominee for the Republican Party. Fast forward just months later and Trump would go on to defeat Hillary Clinton to become the new president, much to the chagrin of the higher ups in the party who believe the billionaire real estate mogul would be bad for the brand. Now after eight months in office, Trump has clashed with his own party on several issues, which was highlighted during a deal he made with Democrats over the debt ceiling and more, as reported by Mediaite on September 6.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump met with leaders of both the Republican and Democratic Party to discuss various issues, with the government spending and the debt ceiling being at the top of the list.

As expected, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell were hoping to keep Trump on the conservative side by avoiding any spending increase, but the president broke with his own party. With all Republicans opposed, Trump joined forces with Democratic leaders in #Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in agreeing to a short-term three month debt limit increase. In addition, Trump appears to have backed off his plans to end DACA, which was also discussed during the meeting.

After the news was made public, Donald Trump made a statement and spoke fondly of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, while ignoring GOP leaders. "Chuck and Nancy would like to see something happen and so do I," Trump said.

Coulter revolts

Despite being a big time supporter of Donald Trump during the election, Ann Coulter has broken from the president on multiple occasions since his inauguration.

The latest issue Coulter has had with Trump has been his plans on immigration, causing the right-wing firebrand to lash out on Twitter earlier this week. Less than 24 hours after her last tweetstorm, Coulter once again ripped into Trump for making a deal with the Democrats, with a special focus on backing down on DACA.

"Possible 2020 slogan: "I broke my promises, betrayed my friends & used my office to help my family, but, hey -- at least I'm not Hillary!" Ann Coulter tweeted. With Coulter and others on the far right starting to question Trump's ability to lead as president, he's facing just a 35 percent approval rating in the most recently released polls.
