A good chunk of Donald Trump‘s base has taken to Twitter in order to vent their fury over the president’s reported new deal with Democrats.
Last night, indications suggested that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer made a deal where Trump would allow for protections to DACA recipients, and Congressional Democrats would say yes to new border security (except for the building of a border wall). Trump got on Twitter to dispute the notion of any deal and talk about how he’ll expand security barriers that already exist.
He also ran defense for DREAMers.
As it were, if you head on over to the MAGA side of the Internet, you’ll find quite a few people who are not very happy with how things are going.
At this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached? https://t.co/g1mMhmm8ng

.@seanhannity No. If true, blame Trump. GOP sucks, but if Trump caves on amnesty & the wall, that’s on him. Quit coddling him.
IF TRUE. https://t.co/ijbcAMYRYq

Has Trump betrayed the base on amnesty?

Of course, if Bill Mitchell is any indication, it’s possible that some of Trump’s base will see the president’s latest maneuver as a totally consistent, politically intelligent decision.
This is how Trump negotiates. It’s shocking to some since were not accustomed to strategic thinking from politicians.
