Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) vowed to wage a battle to the political death against former President Trump.
“Going forward, the nation needs a strong Republican Party,” she said at a defiant presser after the vote to remove her from leadership. “The nation needs a party that is based upon fundamental principles of conservatism and I am committed and dedicated to ensuring that that’s how this party goes forward and I plan to lead the fight to do that.”
A reporter asked the bitter lawmaker if she was prepared to stop Trump from running in 2024.
“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office. We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language,” Cheney said. “We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the Constitution. And I think it is very important that we make sure whomever we elect is somebody who will be faithful to the Constitution.”
Cheney reiterated her conservative credentials and said Trump would destroy the Republican Party.
“We cannot let the former president drag us backward and make us complicit in his efforts to unravel our democracy,” she said. “Down that path lies our destruction, and potentially the destruction of our country.”
“I will be leading the fight to restore our party and our nation to conservative principles, to defeating socialism, to defending our republic, to making the GOP worthy again of being the party of Lincoln.”
