When Donald Trump decided to respond to the recent chemical attack in Syria by President Bashar al-Assad, many of his supporters felt betrayed by his actions. One of the most vocal Trump supporters to speak out has been Ann Coulter, who doesn't appear willing to hold back her thoughts on the issue anytime soon.

Coulter on Trump

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump stood out among his Republican counter parts because he brought a different vision to conservative Americans. One area of focus was on foreign policy, especially when it came to the United States intervening in foreign conflicts and becoming the "world's police." While the former host of "The Apprentice" talked tough when it came to beefing up the military and defense, Trump also promised to pull the United States back from areas where they were actively involved.

After Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack on his own people earlier this month, killing close to 100 innocent women and children, Trump responded by ordering the military to fire off nearly 60 tomahawk cruise missiles at an airbase in Syria. While critics of the president were predictably negative in their response, it was the backlash from die-hard supporters of Trump that came as a surprise. During an interview on the April 12 edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Fox News, conservative author Ann Coulter decided to elaborate further on her frustration.

Joining Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night was Ann Coulter and she didn't shy away from speaking out about Donald Trump over his decision to attack Syria.

"It's very to explain this Syrian attack. It's certainly not a vital national security interest," Coulter said. "For that region of the world, Assad is one of the better leaders," she continued, before adding, "he's not even like a Sadaam Hussein murderous thug."

Doubling down

Not stopping there, Ann Coulter then continued to praise Bashar al-Assad.

"He helped us after 9/11, giving us intelligence," she pointed out, while noting, "it's a very strange thing that we've done here." Coulter went on to bash Donald Trump, stating, "I feel like it's such a departure from what Trump said on the campaign trail and in 2013 in his Twitter feed." Despite the backlash, Trump appeared to calm some of his supporters on Wednesday when he confirmed that his administration has no current plans to send troops into Syria, as the White House deals with push back from Syrian allies, like Russia and Iran.
