Outspoken right-wing columnist Katie Hopkins has caused yet another effortless storm on Twitter, shortly after Donald Trump announced plans for National Security to build a wall across the Mexican border. “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow,” tweeted Trump yesterday evening. “Among many other things, we will build the wall!”
The Daily Mail columnist Katie Hopkins has unsurprisingly welcomed Trump’s immigration policy with open arms by tweeting her support for the 45th President of the United States.
Trump – starts building a wall. Bans immigrants from 7 Muslim countries. THIS is what I am talking about. Trump gets things done #MAGA

In addition to her approval of Trump’s plans for the wall and Muslim immigration, she also took time to lambaste the people who took part in the Womens’ Marches in Washington D.C. over the weekend. “Feminism has to be better than this,” according to Hopkins. “Better than posters telling me your vagina is tough. Or ‘this p*ssy grabs back’.
Hopkins rose to prominence as a contest of the UK edition of The Apprentice, a show created by current US President Trump. She appeared in season three of the UK Apprentice that was fronted by Alan Sugar in 2007. Since then, her voice has been amplified ten-fold, particularly on social media platforms such as Twitter with the vast majority of people viewing her as a ‘troll’.
The fact that it was Trump’s show (albeit in a British guise) that gave Hopkins a prominent voice in today’s right wing media, it’s no surprise to see her voicing her support for the man that, despite his apparent sexist and racist views, gave Hopkins the TV and attention she so desperately seeks.
