The chairman of an Ohio county Republican Party resigned in protest on Monday after President Trump’s Helsinki, Finland, meeting and press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Chris Gagin said he cannot serve as the Belmont County GOP chairman any longer “as a matter of conscience.”

Gagin specifically cited Trump’s “policy differences” as a reason he resigned after the Putin summit.
