Thousands of people have taken to Twitter to explain why they stopped supporting the Republican Party using the hashtag #ILeftTheGOP.
The topic was among the top trends on Monday morning as users posted their reasons for leaving the party, with many placing the blame on President Donald Trump.
The hashtag took off after columnist Cheri Jacobus tweeted that she left the party in 2016 as they nominated Trump and asked others to share when they "cut the cord.".
Radio host and comedian Dean Obeidallah said: "Trump is the GOP and GOP is Trump.
I was a college republican, local committee member, & worked on local, state & national campaigns for republicans.
#ILeftTheGOP because of Trump....this isn't the party I voted for anymore....idk if I will ever go back.
Not to mention, impeachment continues to backfire on Democrats and fire up voters toward President Trump and the Republican movement. »
