The Drudge Report appeared to mock the bipartisan relationship forged by President Trump and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday, calling the pair a "Dream Team" in a feature headline on the popular conservative news aggregation site.

Drudge, which staunchly supported Trump as a candidate in 2016, has joined other conservative outlets in increasingly turning more critical of the president in the past weeks.

The "Dream Team" headline shows Trump and Pelosi smiling in a spilt screen, a photo that will likely rattle conservatives not happy with the president's decision to work with Democrats.

Trump negotiated with Democratic leaders Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) twice in the past month on the debt ceiling and most recently on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Drudge's headline follows a steady stream of conservative criticism for the president on Wednesday and Thursday.

Fox News contributor and nationally syndicated radio host Laura Ingraham scolded President Trump early Thursday for what she said was his decision to work with Democrats on amnesty for nearly 800,000 immigrants who came to the country illegally as children.

"When does American working class w/out real wage increase in 15yrs & who send their kids to overcrowded public schools get amnesty?" asked Ingraham on Twitter.

In another tweet to her 1.71 million followers, she called a pledge for more border security "meaningless."

Breitbart News has also slammed the president using the hashtag "AmnestyDon," which became a top trending topic on Twitter in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

"Amnesty Don" is the headline of a Breitbart News story slamming the president for working with Democrats on the deal.

Buzzfeed on Thursday was also leading their site with a photo of Pelosi and Trump and the headline "The DREAM team," a play on words referencing DACA and the so-called Dreamers, or undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.
