They’re fired! Donald Trump has officially left the Republican Party, changing his voter registration to “unaffiliated.” An aide said that Trump switched “in order to preserve his right to run for president as an independent if he’s not satisfied with who the Republicans nominate.” The aide added that Trump was “disgusted” with the GOP’s handling of the payroll-tax-cut extension.
