“You have become the swamp.”

While it seems that most of President Trump’s ardent supporters aren’t going to leave him over his reported deal to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, some Trump supporters are enraged to the point where they’re burning their iconic Make America Great Again hats.
One video from a Twitter user named Luis Withrow features the former Trumper stating that because Trump has violated a number of campaign promises, he had “no choice” but to burn the hat.
“You have become the swamp,” Withrow declared. “Either drain the swamp, or you’ll never make America great again.”

Withrow then lit his Make America Great Again hat on fire and proceeded to stare into the camera and utter the words: “Your move.”
If only someone had warned them that Trump might renege on his campaign promises.
Many conservatives have long feared that Trump’s Democratic past and habit of flip-flopping might eventually derail his immigration promises. If his deal with Democrats is what it appears to be, it undermines the country’s sovereignty and will be an electoral boon to Democrats.
However, Trump did later tweet that chain migration can’t be included in the deal, which prompted Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review to point out that Trump can be pulled in a conservative direction if enough criticism is there.
Perhaps these Trump supporters burning their MAGA hats are on to something. If Trump begins to believe enough of his base will turn on him in 2020 if he continues to break his campaign promises, maybe he’ll think better about dealing with the Democrats on DREAMers.
