Trump Just Turned His Back On His Supporters And Now They’re Terrified

This election is in the books and to the horror of us all Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States of America. Believe it or not, Trump’s own voters are just now discovering that he might actually go through with what he said he was going to do.

Obviously we’re not talking about cleaning all the corruption that is going on in Washington, but the part where he said he’s going to do away with Obamacare – which millions of his supporters have.

The Urban Policy Institute predicts that based off a “partial repeal plan previously passed by Republicans in Congress, 30 million people would lose insurance, 82 percent of them would be in working families and 56 percent would be white. Among adults who would lose insurance, 80 percent don’t have college degrees.” This basically includes much of Trump’s supporters.

VOX.com’s Senior Editor Sarah Kliff had a talk with a few of these Trump supporters to see what they thought about Trump doing away with Obamacare. To her surprise, she found anxiety in most of their responses.

Trump voter Debbie Mills told Kliff that “I don’t know what we’ll do if it does go away. I guess I thought that, you know, [Trump] would not do this. That they would not do this, would not take the insurance away. Knowing that it’s affecting so many people’s lives. I mean, what are you to do then if you cannot . . . purchase, cannot pay for the insurance? ”

Mills apparently didn’t take Trump seriously, and supported him for “other reasons:” “I guess we really didn’t think about that, that he was going to cancel that or change that or take it away. I guess I always just thought that it would be there. I was thinking that once it was made into a law that it could not be changed.”

It’s fair to say that Trump has turned his back on his fans and is doing nothing to help them out. This also brings up the question – why did they vote for him in the first place?

Trump supporters will come to learn in the next 4 years that their decisions to make him our leader will come with serious consequences.
