Prominent GOP Strategist Steve Schmidt Will Vote Democrat



Steve Schmidt, a prominent GOP strategist has denounced his affiliation with the Republican party and will vote Democrat in the upcoming 2018 mid-term elections. He joined a growing number of conservatives who are turning away from the Trump administration over the US’ immigration policy shift.

Schmidt had nothing nice to say about the GOP when he took to Twitter on Tuesday to slam Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy that is separating children from their immigrant parents.

In a Twitter thread, Schmidt attacked Republicans for refusing to take a stand against human indignities.

Schmidt then said the GOP is “corrupt” and “immoral.”

Schmidt added that the party has launched the “worst abuse of humanity in our history.”

“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,” Schmidt said.

Even as he prepared to vote Democrat, Schmidt summoned the words of Ronald Reagan to call out the GOP.

Schmidt continued his attack against the GOP on Wednesday morning:

“This Independent voter will be aligned with the only party left in America that stands for what is right and decent and remains fidelitous to our Republic, objective truth, the rule of law and our Allies. That party is the Democratic Party,” Schmidt proclaimed.

A growing number of Republican leaders are speaking out against the GOP. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced this week that he will not send National Guard support to the southern border because of Trump’s child separation policy.

Democratic Governor John Carney of Delaware echoed Baker’s actions:

President Trump and his administration have shown no desire to end their zero-tolerance policy with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen promising to uphold Trump’s policies. Nielsen also denied that current circumstances are equal to child abuse.
