President Donald Trump rode a wave of populist anger all the way to White House. He packed stadiums with tens of thousands of individuals to which he made a litany of promises. He would fix the economy and “make America great again” by “draining the swamp.” Once taking power, however, Trump has turned an about face and done the exact opposite – and his supporters have noticed. There is so much discontent and buyer’s remorse amongst Trump supporters that a Twitter account named “Trump Regrets” has exploded with a flurry of activity where they list all of the reasons why they regret casting their vote for him.
In just two months the account “@” has gained international attention and a stunning 186,000 followers. The list of complaints are endless. Some regrets listed find Trump’s behavior unbefitting of a president, while others are outraged at his nonsensical policies. The best of the best can be viewed below:
