Trump’s supporters now leaving him
Apr 07, 2017
Even if Assad had indeed used gas against an ISIS stronghold, what gives the US government the right to attack another sovereign country? Does Assad pose a threat to America? We police everyone else to keep them from attacking their neighbors, but we refuse to hold ourselves to the same standard.
If the president thought his approval ratings would rise by attacking Syria, think again. His core supporters are now leaving him. He has just lost the respect of his most ardent supporters. It makes me wonder how long his presidency will survive. If he is impeached, few will now come to his defense.
Many former Donald Trump supporters have turned on the President after his decision to retaliate against the Assad regime for its chemical weapons attack.
Nigel Farage, Milo Yiannopoulos Katie Hopkins, right-wing vlogger Paul Joseph Watson, Ukip leader Paul Nuttall and Ukip donor Arron Banks are among the Trump supporters who have been disappointed by their hero.
Mr Farage said: "I am very surprised by this. I think a lot of Trump voters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying 'where will it all end?'
Ukip leader Paul Nuttall said: "The U.S. bombing of Syria last night was rash, trigger happy, nonsensical and will achieve nothing. I hoped for better."
Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson said: "I guess Trump wasn't 'Putin's puppet' after all, he was just another deep state/Neo-Con puppet. I'm officially OFF the Trump train.
