In December, I came across a Tumblr profile called “Trumpgrets,” which screen-capped the social media posts of regretful Trump voters. It was an interesting window into what now seems to be a growing contingent of Trump supporters who are disillusioned by the reality of a Trump presidency.
I found a similar profile, this time on Twitter. It’s much more thorough in the sense that it relays the tweets of on-the-fence Trumpsters in real time, by retweeting the sentiments as they come up.
“Retweeting everyone who regrets voting for Trump. DM if you want your tweet taken off,” the bio for @Trump_Regrets reads.
Below is a collection of tweets highlighted on Trump Regrets:
@realDonaldTrump You have lost my support with your shoddy rollout of executive orders. Please, Aim before you Shoot! Yikes!

@realDonaldTrump I supported you, but I also know right from wrong. Are you going to persecute all muslims for the wrong doing of a very few

@POTUS Being our champion should not mean acting in a fascist manner. I voted for you now I'm ashamed due to your ignorance of basic law.
