Longtime GOP strategist Steve Schmidt announces he's leaving the party

“Today I renounce my membership in the Republican Party. It is fully the party of Trump.”

“This child separation policy is connected to the worst abuses of humanity in our history,” Schmidt wrote. “It is connected by the same evil that separated families during slavery and dislocated tribes and broke up Native American families. It is immoral and must be repudiated. Our country is in trouble. Our politics are badly broken.”

“The first step to a season of renewal in our land is the absolute and utter repudiation of Trump and his vile enablers in the 2018 election by electing Democratic majorities,” Schmidt added.

1. I have much respect for Steve,

And his standing up against trump and his loyalist. Now more need to do what's right in Congress and tell these loyalist no more,they to are done with them and their corruption , their lying, and their becoming pawns for trump and putin. I think if enough switched , like in the Senate retaking control over McConnell, this could be stopped or minimized what damage that's done to this country now , until the Nov. elections, and protect the upcoming elections from being corrupted again. There has to be many now feeling trapped in a party they can't represent or back because of who they've become. The republican party is done, now its up to them to do what's right for this country and align against trump by also switching, or they'll regret it. Thank you Steve for doing what's right for you , and for this country. we need more courageous people refusing to be corrupted by this current president.
