Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to hammer George Will, after the influential conservative pundit said he was leaving the GOP.

George Will, one of the most overrated political pundits (who lost his way long ago), has left the Republican Party,” the presumptive GOP presidential nominee tweeted. “He’s made many bad calls.”

Mr. Will on Friday said he changed his voter registration earlier this month to “unaffiliated,” reported PJ Media.

“This is not my party,” he said at a Federalist Society luncheon, mentioning House Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision to endorse Mr. Trump as the cause of his departure.

He said conservative voters should not support Mr. Trump in the presidential race but should focus their efforts on trying to win back the White House in four years.

“Make sure he loses,” Mr. Will said at a Federalist Society luncheon. “Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House.”
