The chief spokesman for the Florida Republican Party, who is Hispanic, is leaving his job and joining a conservative organization — reportedly over his differences with GOP nominee Donald Trump.

Wadi Gaitan, a former senior House Republican aide who focused on Hispanic affairs, will be joining the LIBRE Initiative, a grass-roots organization backed by the industrialists Charles and David Koch.

"I'm thankful for my almost two years with the Florida GOP, however, moving on gives me a great, new opportunity to continue promoting free market solutions while avoiding efforts that support Donald Trump," Gaitan said in a statement, BuzzFeed News reports.

BuzzFeed reports unnamed sources claimed Gaitan, the son of Honduran immigrants, was fed up with supporting efforts to elect Trump.

"His job was getting difficult with the indefensible things being said about immigrants," one unnamed source tells the news site.
