WATCH: MSNBC Panel Destroys Trump Supporters With The Harsh Truth About Their President
On Wednesday, a group of MSNBC political journalists got together to discuss Donald Trump supporters who have shared regret for voting for him.
MSNBC interviewed a group of Trump voters in Pittsburgh, PA and they seemed genuinely horrified at how his presidency has turned out.
“Abject disappointment,” said one voter. “Extremely disappointed — because regardless of what he wants to get done, whatever that may be, he has got to be his own worst enemy. He couldn’t be any worse at achieving goals in politics.”
The responses show that Trump’s base is crumbling. People who voted for him are losing hope.
“He was the deal maker,” Politico’s Jake Sherman said. “This isn’t a partisan statement: He has not made a deal yet and we are eight months into his administration.”
MSNBC contributor Jeremy Peters summed up the Pittsburgh voters’ discontent with Trump by saying, “They thought they’d get Abraham Lincoln and they end up with Don Rickles. This should not be a surprise. I think that — you know, like I was trying to explain earlier, I think there’s — the polling shows that there’s no doubt a bleeding in his support among conservatives and Republicans. I think it’s a question of how much he can recover that.”
