Liz Cheney has not recovered from her loss in the Wyoming primaries, which is understandable. All this while, she thought of herself as a reputable member of the GOP and even believed herself to be a worthy opponent of former president Donald Trump. It must have been shocking for her to realize that she has zero influence even within her party, unable to garner at least 30% of the votes.
However, how this same person who was just recently hit with reality suddenly chose to ignore it and go into complete denial is baffling. Of all people in America, why is this failed politician eying the presidential seat?
The representative to leave office soon has begun spreading the word that she might be going to the White House next. At the Texas Tribune Festival, Cheney added that she would be pissed if the former president emerged as the GOP’s candidate for the 2024 presidential elections.
The lawmaker even threatened that she would leave the party if Trump became the nominee. Someone close to this lawmaker needs to sit her down and tell her the harsh truth till she understands. So far, she has been holding on to the Republican party and not the other way round. With her recent ridiculous speeches and endorsements against the party’s candidate, no one validates her as a party member.
Cheney threatened the GOP, saying that they have to choose between her and Trump, which is the most ridiculous thing the lawmaker has ever said. She might as well leave the party immediately.
.@Liz_Cheney is so committed to Joe Biden and the Democrats that she just intentionally skipped an anti-police vote that Republicans could have defeated.
She clearly supports the Democrat war on police.
Go ahead and switch parties Liz before you’re out of office.

The lawmaker threatened, “I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he is not the nominee. And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”
She was also asked if she intends to run for the presidency in 2024 to ensure that Trump does not become the nominee. Cheney responded. “It’s not about me or making a decision about what I’m going to do. I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office.”

As Cheney lost her primaries, she suggested as she gave a concession speech that she might consider running for president in 2024, comparing herself to Abraham Lincoln. She recalled that he lost elections for both House and Senate, but he ended up winning the Presidential elections, and she could do so too.
Cheney also mentioned on TODAY Show that she was considering joining the next presidential race but was yet to make her decision. She said, “That’s a decision that I’m going to make in the coming months, and I’m not going to make any announcements here this morning. But it is something that I am thinking about, and I’ll make a decision in the coming months.”
