Veteran GOP strategist Steve Schmidt renounced his Republican Party membership on Wednesday and pledged to vote for Democrats in an effort to preserve "what is right and decent" in the United States.

In a series of scathing tweets, Schmidt blasted the GOP as "corrupt, indecent and immoral" and "fully the party of Trump."

"It is filled with feckless cowards who disgrace and dishonor the legacies of the party's greatest leaders," tweeted Schmidt, an MSNBC political analyst who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. "Today the GOP has become a danger to our democracy and our values."

Schmidt, who served as an adviser in the George W. Bush White House, strongly condemned the Trump administration's policy of separating families caught illegally crossing the border into the U.S.

"This child separation policy is connected to the worst abuses of humanity in our history," he tweeted. "It is connected by the same evil that separated families during slavery and dislocated tribes and broke up Native American families. It is immoral and must be repudiated."

Schmidt, who said in July that Trump had the "impulse control of a little child," joins a growing chorus of political pundits and lawmakers to rebuke the administration's practice of separating children from parents facing prosecution for illegally crossing the border.

"All Americans are rightly horrified by the images we are seeing on the news, children in tears pulled away from their mothers and fathers," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said. "This must stop. Now."

'They are deliberate efforts to undermine democracy and our faith in it. What Republican legislators just did in Wisconsin - passing bills to strip key powers from the governor-elect, Tony Evers, and other newly elected Democratic officials - is a total betrayal of the people of Wisconsin and our nation's democratic ideals. Michigan is passing a similar set of bills and North Carolina Republicans are accused of paying someone to steal absentee ballots and commit election fraud for a US House candidate.
