North Carolina women who voted for President Trump in 2016 now say they are “embarrassed” by his behavior, according to a new study by Emory University.

Eleven out of 12 members of a focus group, which included five independents, four Republicans and three Democrats, criticized Trump on Wednesday night, with some describing him as “incompetent," "childlike," "a loose cannon" and "ignorant,” according to The Washington Post.

“I can’t imagine how they let him build a country club — let alone be in one,” said Annie Anthony, a Trump voter. “Because adults don’t behave that way. I’ve been surprised that a billionaire would behave the way he has.”


Anthony hinted that in the 2018 midterm elections she may be voting against some Republicans, saying, “I think the swamp is still full.”

Another woman who voted for Trump said the president is “rude and stressful” and that he has not followed through on his campaign promises.

Melissa Hight, a Trump voter, slammed Trump’s tweets as “childish” and said that he does not “facilitate working together.”

“I had high hopes, but he just goes about things in a way that gets everybody’s back up against the wall,” she said. “He hasn’t acted presidential at all.”

Anthony did commend Trump's showmanship during his Asia trip and said that he and first lady Melania Trump dress nice and “are looking good,” but she called Trump’s behavior “unpresidential.”
