People who voted for Donald Trump have expressed regret over their decision.

The billionaire beat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the November election to become President-elect.

But a number of U-turns on everything from promising to prosecute Ms Clinton, to a pledge to build an “impenetrable and beautiful” wall across the border with Mexico, have left some supporters furious.

A number of users took to Twitter to vent their anger.

Mr Trump performed a number of U-turns within days of winning the election, including rowing back on his proposed ban on Muslims entering the US, and repealing Obamacare.

In November, the 70-year-old disavowed his alt-right and neo-Nazi supporters, despite being hailed as a champion of the far-right.

After repeatedly encouraging "Lock her up!" chants during his campaign rallies, Mr Trump sparked a fierce backlash when he admitted it was "just not something that I feel very strongly about".

Donald Trump named Time Person of the Year

Members of a Reddit thread titled "Hillary For Prison" were left particularly enraged.

In a spectacular U-turn on his biggest U-turn, Mr Trump has appointed a climate change denier as his environmental chief, just weeks after admitting there was "some connectivity" between humans and global warming.
