Donald Trump has made a lot of promises. He said at the Republican National Convention that he alone was Americans’ voice, and also uttered the unusually un-American phrase of “I alone can fix it.”
In his inaugural address, Trump said with even greater aplomb, “I will never, ever let you down.” However, his prospective swamp monster-infested cabinet and childishly petty obsession with inauguration attendance numbers suggest otherwise, and Trump voters have noticed.
In fact, many Trump voters have already disputed his unbridled narcissism with tales of buyer’s remorse, and their anger and regret has been catalogued in an ironic Twitter dose of schadenfreude for the election’s #NeverTrump-ers: @Trump_Regrets.
The anger and disgust Trump has provoked from his own supporters throughout these early days of his presidency would be more enjoyable if it weren’t coexistent with a truly Trumpian assault on our public government and democracy—although it is nice to see Trump set records with his unprecedentedly low approval ratings for a brand new president. With such an unpopular beginning, Trump is on track to go down as one of the worst presidents in history, and his voters’ remorse is pushing him further ahead of the pack of bad presidents.
Allow me to share with you some of these Trump regrets:
