President Donald Trump’s supporters are still in his corner and nothing will shake their dedication to his agenda — even if his legislation hurts them.

In a panel discussion with CNN, agroup of Trump supporters agreed that they were all fine with the increase in troop levels in Afghanistan.

“This is what he said he was going to do,” said Bobby Viera, who criticized President Barack Obama for not doing what Trump is doing now.

Host Alisyn Camerota recalled Trump’s tweets attacking Obama’s troop increase in Afghanistan, wondering why it was bad for Obama to do it, yet a good thing for Trump to do it. Another supporter, Jimmy Dozier, explained that it was due to Trump’s consultation with his generals, while Obama ignored his generals, a talking point frequently pushed by the right.

“He can do what he wants!” one supporter shouted over the rest, excusing the president contradicting himself.

“Yes! He’s Trump!” another shouted out.

When asked about how Trump is handling North Korea, supporter Daphne Goggins simply laughed.

“Kaboom! What are we waiting for?” Goggins said. She said was she was pleased with Trump's show of strength.

Dozier agreed, saying that if Hillary Clinton were in office the stock market would not have been on the rise and alleged that North Korea would probably have already acted.

“Donald Trump is the biggest troll,” Viera said. He went on to say that both Democrats and Republicans are distracted by Trump's Twitter account while he’s getting things done. (Trump has yet to pass any significant legislation.)

Camerota addressed Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), who called on Congress to enact the 25th Amendment due to Trump’s apparent mental instability.

“President Trump is smarter than anyone in this room,” Dozier claimed. “He has made millions of dollars. He knows what he is doing.”

When it came to Trump’s response to the white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, none of the group were “troubled” by it.
