Unimpressive Moves: MAGA Supporters Fume After Trump Made These Three Massive Blunders

by Jessica

Former President Donald Trump has managed to upset and alienate a significant portion of his base within a mere 48-hour span.

From claiming credit for the COVID-19 vaccine to opposing a potential TikTok ban and even praising an underwhelming Republican response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address, Trump’s actions have raised eyebrows and sparked backlash across his loyal MAGA following.

As reported by Newsweek on Saturday, March 9, the first misstep came when Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to quote Biden’s remarks on the COVID-19 vaccine and then proceeded to take credit for accelerating the vaccine’s introduction during the pandemic.

“YOU’RE WELCOME, JOE, NINE MONTH APPROVAL TIME VS. 12 YEARS THAT IT WOULD HAVE TAKEN YOU!” the former president wrote, a statement that drew scathing criticism from many of his supporters who had previously opposed the COVID-19 shot and federal vaccine mandates.

Commentators and media personalities within the conservative sphere were quick to express their outrage, with some accusing Trump of betraying the very principles he had championed during the pandemic.

“The amount of anger I have over this can’t be quantified in words,” wrote Tracy Beanz, editor-in-chief of conservative outlet UncoverDC, while others questioned Trump’s motives and allegiances.

As if that wasn’t enough to rile up his base, Trump then took a stance opposing a potential TikTok ban in the United States, a move that directly contradicted his own executive order from 2020 demanding ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns the popular social media platform, to divest its U.S. assets.

Trump’s apparent shift in opinion drew criticism from prominent figures like Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who called the decision “a big mistake.

But the former president’s missteps didn’t stop there. In a final blow to his supporters, Trump took to Truth Social to praise Senator Katie Britt’s widely mocked response to Biden’s State of the Union address, describing her performance as “GREAT” and “compassionate and caring.”

However, many of his followers saw things differently, with some calling Britt’s speech “embarrassing” and criticizing Trump for his apparent endorsement of a lackluster rebuttal.

The backlash from Trump’s loyal base has been swift and unforgiving, with supporters expressing their disappointment and frustration across various social media platforms.

Some have questioned the former president’s judgment, while others have accused him of betraying the very principles that once rallied them to his cause.

As the fallout from these blunders continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how Trump will address the growing discontent within his ranks.

Will he double down on his controversial stances, or will he attempt to regain the trust and support of those who once stood by him unwavering?

Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: the road ahead for the former president appears to be paved with obstacles and challenges, many of which may have been self-inflicted.
