"He's doing a lot of things to ruin people's lives ... all he's done is surround himself with crooks."

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota spoke with independent voters, all but one of whom voted for President Donald Trump in 2016, in October 2018 to discuss where they stood on support for the president about half way into his first term — and some expressed clear regret for having put their money on Trump.

Anthony Miles, who was drawn to Trump as a candidate due to his “outsider” status in politics, said he now views the president as “the dictator in the White House.”

“[I am afraid] of the dictator [referring to Trump] in the White House. He has no empathy for anything. He will never admit when he makes a mistake,” Miles said.

“He said the system was rigged, and he said he was going to be a new sheriff in town,” the former Trump supporter added. “And all he’s done is surrounded himself with crooks. How many people have been indicted who are in close cahoots with him?”

“I consider myself part of the religious right,” she said. “And now the values I see coming from the White House just don’t mesh up with what I believe.”

Lifelong Republican Stephanie Martin told Camerota that she is embarrassed by Trump’s behavior, which she said does not comport with her understanding of Christianity.

“I consider myself part of the religious right,” she said. “And now the values I see coming from the White House just don’t mesh up with what I believe.”
