Long time Republican donor Leslie Wexner has abandoned the GOP because of Donald Trump.

According to The Columbus Dispatch, the billionaire L Brands CEO said in a speech last year that he was “ashamed” by Trump’s response to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., that erupted in violence and led to the death of a 32-year-old woman.

The 81 year-old Wexer has been a Republican since college and has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to Republican candidates and causes over the years. He is now an independent and says he“won’t support this nonsense in the Republican Party” anymore.
