Conservatives fired back and called the trend “vile.”
Charlie Kirk wrote “The fact that “The Wrong Trump” is trending after the President‘s brother died tells you everything you need to know about the left. They don’t care about people—they only care about power. Pray for the president and his family.”
Mike Cernovich wrote “This is the far left. They aren’t hiding their extreme views. They want you all dead. “
Carmine Sabia wrote “When Hillary Clinton’s brother passed I offered prayers. When Rep. John Lewis and Elijah Cummings passed I offered prayers. When Robert Trump dies people trend “Wrong Trump.” Sad.”
