Trump’s Irrational Actions Cost Him Support From His Right-Wing Wingnuts

Donald Trump is a man that speaks what people want to hear in order to gain popularity, it’s what got him elected in the first place. He appealed to a certain group of people, offering them the impossible.

One of the things Trump promised his supporters was that he was going to put “America first,” a logic that was made fun of by multiple European countries.

On Thursday night Trump ordered a military missile strike at a Syrian airbase, something that a few of his right-wing conservative followers didn’t like. In fact, they felt betrayed by their president.

Ann Coulter, a longtime Trump supporter and conservative media personality, took to Twitter to express her anger with the president. “Those who wanted us meddling in the Middle East voted for other candidates,” she tweeted.

“Trump campaigned on not getting involved in Mideast. Said it always helps our enemies & creates more refugees. Then he saw a picture on TV,” she wrote in another tweet.

Another right-wing conservative that stated he’s “officially off the Trump train” was Paul Joseph Watson, a right-wing radio host and contributor to the conspiracy website Infowars.

He tweeted, “guess Trump wasn’t “Putin’s puppet” after all, he was just another deep state/Neo-Con puppet. I’m officially OFF the Trump train.”

Right-wing blogger and filmmaker Mike Cernovich also took a hit at Trump.

“Today over 500,000 people have watched my videos and streams. 90% are @realDonaldTrump supporters, none want war with Syria. #NoMoreWars,” he wrote on Twitter.

But, Trump’s decision to strike the Syrian airbase wasn’t only looked down upon by his fanbase. The attack could further damage and complicate the United States’ relation with Russia, who is providing military support for Assad and is one of the Syrian government’s fiercest allies in its ongoing civil war.

The strike could have sparked huge consequences. Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, called the strike an act of “aggression against a sovereign state in violation of international law.”
