There’s a growing group of Americans who are starting to regret voting for Donald Trump and he hasn’t even taken the oath of office yet. One has to wonder what these people were expecting. On the campaign trail, Trump flip-flopped on most of the major issues, including: abortion, immigration, his relationship with Vladimir Putin, a Muslim ban, defeating ISIS, the minimum wage, taxes, climate change, the Iraq war, the KKK, and nuclear proliferation. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that he’d change course on most of his policies after being elected.
A tumblr user has compiled the tweets of Trump supporters who are beginning to rethink their decision on a blog called Trumgrets. The blog gives Trump detractors some post-election solace and the joy of mumbling, “I told you so,” to themselves as they scroll.
Trump made a huge campaign promise to “drain the swamp” of Washington special interest groups and lobbyists after being elected. But the moment he was elected, Trump began stocking the swamp with Washington insiders and chose 17-year Goldman Sachs vet, Steven Mnuchin as Secretary of Treasury. 
As eager as the Democrats have been to give people healthcare, Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, has been trying to take it away. Reports show that Trump may turn Medicare into a voucher system, greatly reducing healthcare coverage for America’s seniors and the disabled.
Trump accepted a call from Taiwan’s Tsai Ing-wen, breaking a 37-year diplomatic silence and riling Chinese leaders.
Trump has gone back on his promise to prosecute former Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
Some people really thought he was going to build a wall and Mexico would pay for it.
Some Trump supporters are feeling general regret for supporting a lunatic.


  1. Trumpgrets is already a favorite of mine. It's an opportunity for gloating without guilt. Trumpanzees have richly earned their pangs of regret.

  2. I told you so will do no good now. It's time the Democrats stop crying, or calling Trump Hitler and put together a strategy to stop Trump legislation. With Sessions as AG and a certain conservative filling the empty Supreme Court seat, we will have to have a strong legal strategy.

  3. While I don't disagree on having a strong legal reaction to proposed Trumplislation, I have no problem calling a Nazi a Nazi when he acts like one. I'm planning on showing Trump the exact level of respect the right showed President Obama these past 8 years. :)

    1. Saying Trump is a Hitler shows your ignorance of history. You should be glad Trump is not a Hitler. Your priority should be spent on tactics to stop Trump and his legislation, not just posting hate, that's easy. Enjoy your hate.

  4. Perhaps we should mention your objections to calling them Nazis to the people yelling Seig Heil at the Trump rallies and to all the white nationalists and neonazis who openly back him. Or perhaps to Trump himself when he calls for rounding up segments of our population and for prosecuting journalists into silence.
