The Republican representative for Wyoming, Liz Cheney, has assured that she is confident of continuing her fight against former President Donald Trump despite her recent defeat in the state’s primary against the magnate’s favorite, Harriet Hageman.
Cheney lost last week by more than 35 points, meaning that as of January 2023 he will lose his seat in the House of Representatives. However, he has insisted that he will do everything he can to “support” those who oppose those who deny the election results, alluding to Trump.
“I’m going to work against those people. I’m going to work to support their opponents,” Cheney said in an interview Sunday for ABC, in which he criticized the control that former President Trump maintains in the party.
“People keep believing the lie. He continues to believe what he says, which is very dangerous. Much of our party, including its leadership both at the state level in Wyoming and at the national level is very sick,” he has lamented.
Cheney, one of two Republicans along with Adam Kinzinger to serve on the special committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol assault, has launched renewed criticism of Trump-friendly House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Of the first he says that “he has been completely unfaithful to the Constitution” and of the second, considered one of the possible candidates for the presidential race among the Republicans for 2024, he has recalled that he is one of those who denies the results that gave the triumph to Joe Biden in the last presidential election.
In relation to the president of the United States, Cheney has confirmed that he spoke by phone with him after learning the results of the Wyoming primaries, in which they addressed “the importance” of putting the country before the party.
However, she rules out any approach to the Democratic Party since she feels “very Republican”, so much so that she and Trump came to coincide in 93 percent of the votes while their paths coincided.
“I believe in Republican policies. I believe in a strong national defense, I believe in lowering taxes. I believe in limited government,” stressed Cheney, who considers herself “the best candidate” for president of the United States, over the one who has set aside the Constitution, “to adopt a cult of personality.”
