Donald Trump lost some of his most loyal supporters on Friday when he decided to reopen the government without getting funds for his proposed border wall.
Right-wingers, furious with Trump, took to Twitter to share their distaste for the president’s decision.
“Trump is a broken man,” Mike Cernovich, a far-right figure known for touting the Pizzagate conspiracy theory in which Democrats allegedly ran a child sex ring out of a DC pizza restaurant, tweeted. “It’s over for him.”
Trump is a broken man. It's over for him.

Cernovich wasn’t the only right-winger to express their anger, multiple others shared the same opinion.
Here’s how Trump’s “former” supporters responded to him caving:
Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States.

I’ve been writing for weeks that if Trump caved without a border wall, he’d be giving Pelosi a win and conceding defeat. He’ll look weak to his base. The public vote of confidence from supporters right now is not necessarily their private sentiment.

Apparently a wall isn't as good as a cave

It's amazing that you would swear an oath and fail to uphold it.
Maybe not so surprising, actually. https://t.co/b4sUpvOnfA

Trump said he would not reopen the government without funding for a border wall. He did not get that funding – so why is he reopening the government?
