Rep. Liz Cheney, who was recently kicked out of the Republican leadership for criticizing Donald Trump, declared on Thursday that she would do “whatever it takes” to thwart the former president from winning re-election. Cheney has not ruled out running for president in 2024. On Thursday, Cheney said on a show that she believed it was her responsibility to keep Trump, 74, out of the White House and to strive to free the Republican Party from the former president’s toxic control.
Cheney has not ruled out running for president in 2024 And said “I’m going to do everything I can.”
“I’m going to do everything I can,” she proclaimed, adding that she wouldn’t become independent. When Cheney, 54, was unanimously ousted from her third-place position in the House caucus on Wednesday morning, tensions between her and her Republican colleagues reached a breaking point. The vote, which was anticipated for days, was a reaction to Cheney’s anti-Trump stance within the GOP, which included criticizing his attempts to undermine the legitimacy of the November election. Cheney stated on a show that Trump, who has hinted at a prospective 2024 presidential bid, “must never again go anywhere close to the Oval Office.” Trump referred to Cheney as a “bitter, nasty human being” and a “warmonger” as he welcomed her losing her position of authority.
What did Cheney tell Savannah about the elections?
Cheney told Savannah Guthrie on a show, “I won’t let a past president or anyone else dismantle democracy, whatever it takes.” She would still have a difficult time running against someone who enjoys strong support from the party’s grassroots. Trump faced competition from other Republicans for the nomination in 2020, but none even came close. The “biggest critical issue that we are facing right now as a country,” according to Cheney, is getting rid of Trump’s version of conservatism. She also believes his hold on the Republican Party is “extremely hazardous.”
Cheney announced that she intends to compete for re-election
She declared on a show that she intends to compete for re-election and that she is unconcerned by the prospect of a primary challenge from Trump’s supporters. It’s a personality cult, she declared. He “betrayed and deceived people.” Since the pro-Trump mob’s violence on January 6 in the U.S. Capitol, only a small number of prominent Republicans have opposed Trump. One of them is the Wyoming legislature and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney has received repeated criticism from Trump and his Republican friends since she and nine other House Republicans voted to impeach him following the uprising.
Cheney demanded an investigation into what happened on January 6
She has also been censured by her state’s Republican Party. Because, in their opinion, she would not get past Trump’s election lies, other conservatives progressively parted with her even though she had previously survived a Republican vote against her leadership. According to the news, Republican Rep. Dan Bishop of North Carolina remarked, “The notion that 5 percent of the Republican Party is going to destroy the influence of President Trump in the party never was conceivable.” “For the Republican Party, it’s not good. It’s detrimental to the nation.” Last month, Cheney demanded an investigation into what happened on January 6 in the manner of the 9/11 commission in order to ascertain who is to blame for the unrest that resulted in five deaths and numerous injuries while forcing lawmakers into temporary hiding.
Cheney declined to say if she believed Trump should be charged
Cheney declined to say if she believed Trump should be charged for his involvement in the disturbance on the show, saying the Justice Department should make that determination. However, she did tell Guthrie that anyone who did what Trump did “needs to be criminally investigated.” She also expressed dissatisfaction with other GOP leaders who have reached out to Trump or visited him at his exclusive Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida following the attack, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
What did Cheney say about Leader McCarthy?
Given what the past president did, “Leader McCarthy’s visit to the former president at Mar-a-Lago was truly astonishing,” Cheney added. I don’t understand why you would want to rehabilitate him because he incited an attack on the Capitol, an attack on our democracy. Trump continues to assert erroneously that he didn’t lose the 2020 election to President Joe Biden, making him “unfit” to ever take office again, according to Cheney. She asserted, “I believe the leaders of my party have chosen to accept the falsehood, have chosen to disregard it, and I believe that’s incredibly dangerous.” “In my opinion, we have a duty to speak out against it.” I’ll definitely keep doing that, she declared.
