Social media users launch #unfollowTrump movement after senator unfollows Trump

Critics of US President Donald Trump launched the #unfollowTrump movement on Twitter Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said he would unfollow Trump’s “hate-filled, racist, and demeaning” feed.

The hashtag #unfollowTrump began circulating on social media on Monday morning after Murphy appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to explain his decision to unfollow Trump’s @realDonaldTrump account, presstv Reported.

“Yesterday morning, I just decided I had had enough of starting my days with this kind of racist, hateful, demeaning negativity,” Murphy explained. “Obviously I’m in this business and I’m in the United States Senate to try and stop his hateful agenda from moving into law.”

The senator from Connecticut said that he gets “trapped” in a vicious cycle of immediately responding to Trump’s tweets.

After this, social media users started following Murphy’s lead, using the hashtag #unfollowTrump to announce that they would stop subscribing to Trump’s feed. Trump has a massive 62.4 million following on Twitter.
