Ann Coulter Predicts That Kamala Harris Will Be the 'Next President'

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has a prediction for who will be elected U.S. leader in 2020—and it isn't President Donald Trump.

As far as Coulter is concerned, it will be Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California who will claim the top job in the United States come 2020.

Coulter made the prediction in an eviscerating column on her personal website, tearing into Trump over his failure to build his long-promised U.S. border wall.

Branding Trump a "gutless president" in a "wall-less country," Coulter accused Trump of "scamming voters" with his promise to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico and warned that "if he doesn't build the wall, he has zero chance of being re-elected and a 100 percent chance of being utterly humiliated."

The controversial commentator said that if Trump continues down his current path, he will "absolutely" guarantee "that the next president is a Democrat. And given today's Democratic Party, that president will be Kamala Harris."

Indeed, Harris's name has consistently been floated as a potential candidate for the 2020 race.

The Democrat topped CNN's recent monthly power ranking of U.S. Democrats most likely to get their party's presidential nomination in the next general election, pulling ahead of ever-popular Texas representative Beto O'Rourke.

While CNN said that "if O'Rourke looked like he was definitely running, we might have made him number one," the broadcaster said that with Harris appearing to "be moving methodically toward running," the California senator has earned the top spot.

CNN's ranking system is determined by analysts' projections based on current polling, historic trends and "lessons that the 2018 Democratic primaries have taught us."

Harris also led a field of potential 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls in a straw poll released Tuesday by She the People—a national network of influential women of color in politics—with the senator claiming more than 71 percent of the support.

The national straw poll, which was conducted between November 29 and December 13, surveyed 264 women which it described as "color leaders, campaign workers and managers, political strategists, organizers and activists," with nearly 50 percent of participants identifying as African American, 40 percent Latinx, 16 percent Asian and more than 5 percent as Native American.

In both assessments, Harris was followed by O'Rourke, with former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden holding the top spot, and fellow Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey holding the fourth.

Meanwhile, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren maintained the fifth spot in both assessments, with results only diverging over which potential candidate should hold the sixth spot.

In CNN's analysis, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders claimed that spot, followed by Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, while in She the People's straw poll, Sanders was placed one spot behind Stacey Abrams, who lost a controversial race against Republican Governor-elect Brian Kemp in the recent midterm elections.

While Harris has yet to confirm whether she plans to run in 2020, she has fueled much speculation with visits to states such as Iowa, where the first caucus of the 2020 presidential nominating contest would take place.

The California senator has said she plans to give the possibility of a presidential run some serious thought over the holidays and will make a decision then.
