Fans of US President Donald Trump have turned on him after reports Mr Trump has backed down on a decision to cancel the visas of 800,000 young people.

Mr Trump had previously announced he would cancel the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme, or DACA.

DACA has allowed immigrants who arrived undocumented in the United States as children to stay in the country. Mr Trump had announced his intention to end the program earlier in September. 

This angered many of Mr Trump's supporters, who rallied behind him during his campaign in support of his isolationist policies on immigration.

They're now using hashtags #amnestytrump and #burnmyMAGAhat and sharing videos of the destruction of Donald Trump merchandise.
