Conservative pundit Ann Coulter visited “The View” to discuss her support of presidential candidate Donald Trump and her disdain for illegal immigration and wound up in a brief verbal fracas with host Raven-Symoné.

“We’re bringing in millions and millions of people from very poor cultures, very backward cultures,” Coulter said, responding to a question about her new book “Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole.”

Atlanta’s Raven-Symoné challenged Coulter saying, “My mom taught me when I was younger, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Why do you think it’s important to mudsling?”

Responded Coulter: “I’m at least talking about policy. You have a position on what people’s names should be. You’ll insult people for their names. I’m talking about a government policy … that is harming our country.”

She was referring to Raven-Symoné’s recent remark about how she wouldn’t hire someone with a strange name like “Watermelondrea.”
