A lukewarm Republican has vowed to leave the party should Donald Trump be elected as the GOP’s presidential candidate in the 2024 election.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who voted in favor of Trump’s impeachment, expressed her latest attack on the former President while speaking on CNN on Sunday.
CNN reporter Daniella Diaz opened up Cheney’s comments by saying: “She had a lot to say to say indeed. One of them being a question being whether she would run for president in 2024 against former President Donald Trump. She, of course, dodged that question as she has continued to dodge that question since she lost the primary. She will not serve in the next Congress. But really notable, as you all said, that she said if Donald Trump wins the nomination in 2024, she will no longer consider herself a Republican. Take a listen.”
Rep. Cheney described a GOP supportive of Trump as “sick” and promised she would leave the party if it nominated him this upcoming election.
“I think that Donald Trump is the only president in American history who refused to guarantee a peaceful transition of power. And so the fact that my party in the months since then has refused to stand up to him I think, does tell you how sick the party is. I’m going to make sure Donald Trump is not the nominee, and if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican,” Cheney, who recently lost her reelection for the Wyoming house in early August, said of Donald Trump.
Cheney’s failed election was not close by any stretch of the imagination.
As National File previously reported:
Cheney, one of the most prominent anti-Trump voices in the GOP and vice-chair of the Jan. 6th commission, was defeated Tuesday by the Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman, by a shocking margin of 37 points.
In addition to leading the Jan. 6th commission over the past 18 months, Cheney was a loud advocate of American intervention across the globe, following in her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney’s footsteps.
During a Wyoming rally in May, former President Donald Trump told supporters that Cheney and her father loved “endless, nonsensical, bloody wars”, and were “warmongers.”
“The Cheneys are diehard globalists and warmongers who have been plunging us into new conflicts for decades, spilling American blood and spending American treasure all over the world,” the former President explained.
“That’s why Liz Cheney voted no on bringing our troops back home from Syria, where they didn’t even want to have us,” Trump added, referencing Rep. Liz Cheney’s opposition to troop reductions during Trump’s term.
