(The Hill) Donald Trump "panicked" when he said he was open to softening his immigration policies, according to conservative pundit and Trump ally Ann Coulter.
"It's just rhetoric but it's still annoying," Coulter told The Hill Wednesday night. "I think he panicked and he had to say [it] ... I don't think he is softening. I mean the big thing is the wall."
Coulter, a hardline opponent of illegal immigration and one of Trump's most prominent media backers, was speaking to The Hill at a party to launch her new book, "In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!"

In the book, Coulter writes that "there's nothing Trump can do that won't be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies."
