Trump Supporters Turn On Him After Hearing What Deal He Was Making With Dems

President Trump is alienating some of his supporters by reaching across the aisle.

Particularly, some former supporters are up in arms at Trump suggesting that he will scrap his plan to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration initiative, according to the Daily Mail.

Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump vowed to crack down on illegal immigration. He promised his fans he would build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, prevent Muslims from entering the United States, and deport all undocumented immigrants. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently announced that the administration would phase out DACA over a six-month period.

However, the president has since indicated he will back DACA if Congress takes action to make the program comply with the Constitution. “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!” he tweeted last week.

Trump supporters also are upset about his negotiations with Democratic congressional leaders. Funding for the wall apparently is not part of the DACA deal that the president has been discussing with Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the top-ranking Democrats on Capitol Hill, according to The Associated Press.

Some Trump voters are using the hashtags “#AmnestyDon” and #bummyMAGAhat” to lash out at the president. “MAGA” is a reference to Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.” Conservative Congressman Steve King of Iowa tweeted: “If AP is correct, Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible.”

Luis Withrow, 16, posted a video in which he accused the president of having become part of “the swamp” that the candidate pledged to “drain” in Washington, D.C. Withrow and others wrote that they had burned their red hats bearing the MAGA logo.

“So far, he’s pretty much reversed his stance on immigration by keeping DACA and not building a real wall, intervened in the Middle East, sold weapons to the Saudis, stayed in NATO, stayed in NAFTA, and so much more that I could just go on and on about,” Withrow told BuzzFeed News. “I’ve been reconsidering support for a while, but the DACA deal just sent me over the edge. I still support him as the president, but I think that he needs to have it drilled into his head that we’re his base and that we matter.”

Another Twitter user wrote: “When @realDonaldTrump lets the swamp monsters in and shows the base the door … the base fights back.” The Huffington Post reported that some former Trump backers are calling for his impeachment. “You broke my heart,” one of them wrote, adding that the president “better look forward to retirement in 2020.”

However, National Public Radio reported that Trump is not losing all his admirers. Dick Gabriel of Iowa predicted that the president’s actions on DACA will not “break up the base because I think those that are be behind him will be behind him permanently.” Another Trump supporter from the Hawkeye State expressed hope that Trump will be “able to get more done with Democrats.” Jeff Kaufmann, who chairs the Iowa Republican Party, proclaimed: “We will absolutely stand behind President Donald Trump. He is our president and we are proud of him.”
