The chief spokesman for the Florida Republican party resigned from his position today so he will no longer be forced to support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
From the Washington Post:
Wadi Gaitan, a former senior House Republican aide who focused on Hispanic affairs, becomes yet another high-profile Latino Republican official to leave his job because he can no longer tolerate defending and explaining Trump. The Republican nominee has spent much of the past year maligning immigrants, minorities and women, a strategy that helped him win the party’s nomination but that has led to historically poor approval ratings among black and Latino voters.
Gaitan is not done being a Republican nor is he going to support Hillary Clinton as far as we know, he’s simply done being a spokesman for Trump’s Republican party. Gaitan will continue to promote “free market solutions” by joining a conservative group backed by the Koch Brothers that reaches out to Hispanic communities.
It would be ideal if everyone vocally supported Trump’s opponent, but publicly abandoning him may be enough to get the job done. Trump cannot be allowed to win.
