Thirty former Republican members of Congress have published a letter against Donald Trump, NBC News reported.
"Sadly, our party's nominee this year is a man who makes a mockery of the principles and values we have cherished and which we sought to represent in Congress," they wrote.
Their letter constitutes the largest public announcement against Trump by previously elected officials from the Republican party.

Some of the members had previously announced their displeasure with the candidate, including Rep. Tom Coleman of Missouri, but nearly half of the signatories are doing so for the first time.
