Editor Bill Kristol on Friday took to Twitter to argue that President Donald Trump's departure from the White House is better for the conservative cause in America.

Kristol is editor-at-large for The Weekly Standard. Here are his tweets:

Long a Trump critic who floated running a third candidate in the November election, Kristol hammered the point home in his latest magazine column in light of the controversies engulfing the White House in the last week.

"It would also be nice if we could set aside worrying about our president and the distractions of our current politics in order to focus on the more serious challenges," he said. "But dealing with serious problems requires presidential leadership and serious decisions arrived at through political discussion."

After quoting Alexander Hamilton on the electorate's role in establishing good government, Kristol concluded:

"The temporary misfortune of a demagogue in the Oval Office, the broader problem of an unenlightened populism, the perhaps even deeper challenge of a blind and destructive progressivism — none of these excuses us from the urgent responsibility and inspiring opportunity to vindicate the capacity of mankind for self-government."
