Will the State of the GOP Race Change in WI?

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter is speaking out against Donald Trump's critics of his immigration policies and stance on abortion, arguing the Republican hopeful's ideas on immigration protect women from "Latin American rape culture."

Coulter made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC Tuesday, after Hardball host Chris Matthews asked her why multiple conservative radio hosts have spoken out against the GOP front-runner in recent weeks and months.

"I can't speak to them specifically, but what I do notice is the absence of substance," Coulter began her nearly minute and 20 second response. "I keep hearing that the anti-Trump people say 'well we think more deeply' and 'we don't fall for this demagoguery.'"

Trump found himself in hot water just last week when he said women should be punished if they receive an illegal abortion. His favorability among women, which was already low, began sinking even further after those comments. He later walked back his original statement.

"If Donald Trump was running for state legislature in the year 2060 after Roe v. Wade was overturned and happens to be in a place that will pass those laws, that's a relevant question," Coulter said. "I think I'd be a lot more upset that women are going to get a lot more abortions if we don't close our border with Mexico and bring in all of Latin American rape culture."

Her comments sparked backlash from viewers, but the Trump supporter made it clear Wednesday she wasn't backing down when she unleashed a plethora of tweets, spouting off claims of child sexual assaults in Latin America and pointing blame at the media for not discussing it.
