Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Ex-Trump Official Quits GOP, Says Republican Party Is Now A Threat To America”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A former Homeland Security official in the Trump administration who later turned into one of the former president’s critics has quit the Republican Party, saying the GOP can’t be saved.

Miles Taylor, who was the agency’s deputy chief of staff and then chief of staff from 2017 to 2019, wrote on Twitter:

I'm done.I no longer believe the Republican Party can be saved. The vitriolic rhetoric is inspiring violent radicals.I'm quitting the GOP. And I hope more do the same.

“In the wake of the mass shooting in Buffalo on Saturday, it’s become glaringly obvious that my party no longer represents conservative values but in fact poses a threat to them — and to America,” he wrote.

Taylor was referring to the white supremacist who shot and killed 10 at a Buffalo grocery store and specifically targeted Black people.
