‘He Was So Disparaging To Them’: Trump Constantly Mocked His MAGA Supporters In Private, Pence Aide Says

Donald Trump reportedly mocked his own supporters behind closed doors

According to Olivia Troye, a former aide to ex-Vice President Mike Pence, Donald Trump frequently ridiculed his MAGA supporters in private. Troye, speaking on The View, noted that Trump’s tone towards his followers was consistently derogatory.

Sunny Hostin, a co-host on The View, referenced a recent Morning Consult poll indicating 61 percent GOP primary support for the former president. She questioned Troye about the enduring loyalty to Trump and its implications for the party.

Troye expressed her dismay at the current state of the Republican Party, stating that it diverged from her vision and its historical identity. She criticized Trump for portraying himself as the champion of his supporters while, in reality, having little in common with them. Troye, drawing from personal experience in closed-door meetings, highlighted Trump’s disparaging remarks about his own supporters, a sentiment she finds troubling.

“Well, I think it speaks to an unfortunate state of the Republican Party,” Troye remarked. “It is certainly not the party that I want it to be and not the party that I believe it has been in the past.”

“I think he has done a great job of sort of marketing himself as the champion for all of these people who are behind him in this movement,” she explained. “But, like, we’ve sat in these meetings. What is so frustrating and angering to me is he has nothing in common with any of his supporters and I detest the way he speaks about them.”

The way he spoke “was so disparaging to them,” she lamented.

Reflecting on her own family members who still support Trump, Troye acknowledged their disappointment in her critical stance. She emphasized her dislike for Trump’s behind-the-scenes comments about his supporters. This accusation isn’t isolated, as Trump had previously been accused by Michael Cohen, his former fixer, of mocking his Christian followers during the campaign.

Despite such revelations, Trump maintains a significant lead in the race for the Republican nomination. Most recent polls showed him with 61 percent support, leaving other potential candidates far behind. Ron DeSantis garnered only 12 percent, with figures like Vivek Ramaswamy, Nikki Haley, Mike Pence, and Chris Christie trailing in the polls.
