Donald Trump’s staunchest supporters are turning against the president following news that he cut a deal with top Democrats to protect the children of undocumented immigrants. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced the agreement Wednesday night.
High-profile Trump supporters like columnist Ann Coulter despaired.
“You promised to make American dreams come true,” Fox host Lou Dobbs tweeted. “Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible,” Rep. Steve King of Iowa said.
Trump first denied the agreement on Wednesday night, but by Thursday morning seemed to be defending it.
Soon, #AmnestyDon began trending. Breitbart is claiming credit.
Wednesday night’s deal with the Democrats is the second time in a week Trump has skirted the GOP to bargain with the left.
