‘Con Man’: See Why Right-Wing Twitter Just Completely Turned On Trump

President Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters turned on him for working on a deal with Congressional Democrats to pass a bill allowing DACA recipients to stay in the country.

Trump agreed to a general deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass a bill protecting DREAMers in return for some sort of border security – but no border wall.

Trump earlier this month killed President Obama’s executive order protecting DREAMers – undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children – but urged Congress to pass a bill to protect the very same people whose lives he just endangered.

Many in the media assumed Trump would use the bill as leverage to demand Democrats vote to fund his ridiculous “big, beautiful” border wall. Instead, it appears the great negotiator caved immediately and agreed to the Democrats’ demands.

“The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built,” Trump insisted to his followers on Twitter after the deal was revealed.


“Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?” he tweeted. “Really! They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own – brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security.”

Speaking to reporters later, Trump insisted the wall will “come later.”

That is a rather large departure for a president who used the “wall” as a prop to rile up his most xenophobic supporters. “The wall will come later” is an abrupt change of tune for a guy who insisted the wall “just got taller” any time someone questioned his sincerity or value of a border wall.

Trump had already tampered his tone when discussing the wall since becoming president, particularly because he insisted Mexico would pay for the wall but clearly it would have to be the American taxpayers who foot the bill for a novelty item that will run in the tens of billions of dollars.

Trump also promised to end DACA. Many of his most xenophobic supporters cheered the move, as well as his promise to deport millions of undocumented immigrants.

While Democrats have long accused Trump of being a blatant liar with no true beliefs outside of self-promotion, the move to delay the border wall and allow DACA recipients to stay in the country apparently blindsided the president’s far-right supporters and they lashed out on Twitter.

Breitbart, which is run by former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, declared Trump “Amnesty Don.”

The Sean Hannity’s and Ann Coulter’s of the world lost what little they had left of their collective minds.

The Hannity’s and Coulter’s of the world defended Trump on every other broken promise, every gaffe, every horrific thing he did and admitting to doing because they believed he was with them on immigration. With the push to codify DACA and the eager dismissal of the border wall he touted for 18 months on the campaign trail, they just learned a lesson most of America learned two years ago – you can’t trust this guy on anything.
