Throughout Donald Trump strange run for president he has sent not so coded messages to white nationalists. He has retweeted messages from white supremacists and pandered to their views by promising to build a wall to prevent illegal immigration and ban Muslim immigration. Last week, he brought on Steve Bannon, head of Breitbart to be CEO of his campaign. Breitbart has become a hotbed of white nationalist views in recent years.

But there might be trouble in paradise. Some white nationalists are beginning to turn on Trump as he has tried to soften his views on mass deportation.

A poster on Stormfront called AnnCoulterLover said he was frustrated with Trump’s new views.

“I was hoping that when Trump was president we were going to get rid of all the beaners, and now he’s talking of changing his mind?” said AnnCoulterLover.

“Trump becomes more like the RINOs with each passing day,” said a poster called Verbundete. “He’s talking about a ‘fair’ approach to illegal immigration and working with amnesty advocates to create his new immigration plan when really there’s nothing more fair than deporting those who come here illegally. Also notice that he’s been talking about the wall and Muslims less and less on the media and at his rallies.”

Other Trump supporters have also expressed dissatisfaction with the reality TV star. In a focus group organized by Republican pollster Frank Luntz, they said they were disappointed by his “erratic behavior.”
