Kirsters Baish| It seems that President Donald Trump has had to deal with more criticism than any other President our country has ever seen. His administration and family is constantly being attacked. The overwhelming majority of mainstream media coverage of his presidency has been negative. Liberal protesters have fought him at every turn. The fact that we are in the age of social media has a lot to do with just how much backlash Trump has received. Liberals these days seem to throw logic away, dubbing themselves as “NeverTrumpers.” Well, one NeverTrumper changed his mind about Trump after hearing of all the things he has accomplished in just a year and a half in office.
Conservative Tribune writes:
There are a number of different strains of NeverTrumpism. There are some who believe that Trump is too far right, or not far enough, or some combination of both that make him an unsavory Republican. There are those who think that he’s not presidential enough or that his blunt manner of speaking ought to disqualify him from the office. And then there are some who — let’s face it — don’t like the very corporeal threat to the establishment that a president who didn’t come up through the political ranks poses. (Looking at you, Mr. Kristol.)
The NeverTrump movement has caused many problems in the Republican Party. It’s not just a problem for the 2020 presidential election, but it could also be an issue in this coming November’s midterm elections in the House and the Senate.
You’re probably wondering what these NeverTrumpers think of him now that he’s accomplished so much. TheBlaze reported that Fox News made their way to the presidential campaign-style rally in Tampa, Florida last week, and there, they were able to talk to a former NeverTrumper, who explained what made him change his mind.
The man, who remains unidentified, spoke to Griff Jenkins. He explained that he did not vote for Trump, even though he was a Republican. He didn’t feel, at the time, that Trump would be a good candidate to stand up for conservative values.
He has since changed his tune. Take a look:
"I was worried he wouldn't be a good Republican and, honestly, he's changed my mind a lot."

“I was worried he wouldn’t be a good Republican and, honestly, he’s changed my mind a lot,” the man explained.
He continued, “The best thing he’s done in my opinion is the tax cuts and the Supreme Court pick, and if he keeps doing a good job, I will — so I didn’t vote for anybody in this very last election, but this time around I probably will vote for him.”
Jenkins saw the man after the rally. He explained that he was impressed by what took place.
The man stated, “I agree with him, we need to make America strong again. We need to make America great again.
He continued, “And, I like most of what I heard, so coming from a guy who didn’t like him to liking him now, I — that’s a step up, right?”
Border security was a big topic in Trump’s Tampa speech.
“Every day, the brave men and women of ICE are liberating communities and towns from savage gangs like MS-13 that are occupying our country like another nation would. We want maximum border security and respect for our heroes, ICE, Border Patrol and law enforcement,” President Trump said.
Trump also touched on his infrastructure project. He explained that “a lot of people don’t know it, but we’ve already started the wall. We got $1.6 billion and we’ve started large portions of the wall, but we’re going to need – even the way we negotiate, we’re going to need more and we’re going to get more and we may have to do some pretty drastic things, but we’re going to get it.”
