I didn’t vote for this
Nigel Farage, Milo Yiannopoulos Katie Hopkins, right-wing vlogger Paul Joseph Watson, Ukip leader Paul Nuttall and Ukip donor Arron Banks are among the Trump supporters who have been disappointed by their hero.
Mr Farage said: “I am very surprised by this. I think a lot of Trump voters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying ‘where will it all end?’
“As a firm Trump supporter, I say, yes, the pictures were horrible, but I’m surprised. Whatever Assad’s sins, he is secular.”
He said Britain should not get involved in any further strikes, commenting: “Previous interventions in the Middle East have made things worse rather than better.”
Other Donald Trump supporters have been more forthright in their comments.
Ukip leader Paul Nuttall said: “The U.S. bombing of Syria last night was rash, trigger happy, nonsensical and will achieve nothing. I hoped for better.”
Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson said: “I guess Trump wasn’t ‘Putin’s puppet’ after all, he was just another deep state/Neo-Con puppet. I’m officially OFF the Trump train.
“It’s been fun lads, but the fun is over. I’ll be focusing my efforts on Le Pen, who tried to warn Trump against this disaster.”
American right-wing commentator Ann Coulter, who campaigned for Donald Trump, wrote: “Those who wanted us meddling in the Middle East voted for other candidates.
“Trump campaigned on not getting involved in Mideast. Said it always helps our enemies & creates more refugees. Then he saw a picture on TV.”
EVERY Trump supporter needs to see this Ivanka’s advisor Dina Powell — now Trump’s Nat’l Security Advisor — close to Jarrett, Hillary
@POTUS fulfills another campaign promise to the American people w/ confirmation of #JusticeGorsuch to the #SCOTUS https://t.co/fRnEt9ZHCT
