Even Trumps most ardent supporters say that the President caved in agreeing to reopen the government even though he did not receive any funding for his planned border wall.
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter called Trump the biggest wimp in the history of the office following his concession on Friday.
Coulter, an immigration hawk and early Trump supporter, reacted with swift fury to Trumps announcement on Friday that he would reopen the government for three weeks without any commitment from Congress to fund a southern border wall.
Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States, Coulter wrote on Twitter.
Bush, who died in November aged 94, was widely ridiculed in office for going back on his read my lips vow not to raise taxes.
Among the hardest core of Trumps base, many had expected the President to push forward with declaring a national emergency in order to build the wall, a proposal he had floated for weeks.
Thursdays deal to reopen government came as a shock to this group and a potential blow to Trumps reelection chances.
Taking to Twitter, Trump defended his move and insisted that an emergency declaration was still on the table if Democrats in Congress do not cut a deal to fund the border wall before the three week deadline.
Ann Coulter, seen on Real Time on Friday night, lashed out at Trump for making a deal to reopen the government without securing any funding for a border wall
Couler declared that Trump backing down from his wall demand to end the shutdown made him an even bigger wimp than George HW Bush, who famously reneged on a tax promise
I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, its off to the races! Trump wrote on Friday night.
He continued to battle base backlash on Saturday morning, writing: 21 days goes very quickly. Negotiations with Democrats will start immediately. Will not be easy to make a deal, both parties very dug in. The case for National Security has been greatly enhanced by what has been happening at the Border through dialogue. We will build the Wall! 
In her interview with HBOs Bill Maher on Friday, Coulter said that all of her concerns about Trump would be forgiven if the wall gets built.
Just keep your promises and Im right back in your camp, she said.
Otherwise, speculation has circulated that Coulter might mount a primary campaign against Trump.
Asked about the possibility by Maher, Coulter joked: Im against women working, so I cant.
