What does Trumpster mean?

Someone who supports Donald Trump

Trumpster is a term often used to describe a devoted follower of the former U.S. President, Donald J. Trump. It’s a common term seen on social media platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook, and can also be heard in direct conversations.

The term gained significant popularity in the summer of 2016, as Trump’s campaign for the Republican candidacy for the U.S. presidency picked up steam. It saw another increase in usage when Trump took office in January 2017 and then its usage decreased gradually. However, it saw a significant rise again towards the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 during the contested Presidential election results.

While Trumpster is primarily used by those on the left side of the political spectrum to criticize Trump’s followers, not all individuals on the receiving end of the term view it negatively. In fact, quite a few Trump supporters embrace the term in a similar vein to when they adopted the “deplorables” label, a term initially used by Hilary Clinton back in 2016.
