I did not leave the Republican Party. The Republican Party left its senses. The political movement that once stood athwart history resisting bloated government and military adventurism has been reduced to an amalgam of talk-radio resentments. President Trump’s Republicans have devolved into a party without a cause, dominated by a leader hopelessly ill-informed about the basics of conservatism, U.S. history and the Constitution.
"Trump is Killing the Republican Party" is from the July 16, 2017 Opinions section of The Washington Post. It was written by Joe Scarborough and narrated by Sam Scholl.
