Anti-Trump RINO Republican Rep Liz Cheney is now teasing she may run for president in 2024.
Cheney, who suffered a blistering defeat in her Republican primary last year, now thinks she has a shot at the White House.
“I’m not going to do anything that helps Donald Trump,” Cheney told NBC News anchor Lester Holt.
“I’ll make a decision about sort of what I do and what comes next later on this year,” she added.
“The way that I’m thinking about where we are and what has to be done is much less about, you know, what should I do in terms of am I going to be a candidate or not … and much more about stopping Donald Trump, whatever that takes,” she said.
Liz Cheney sidestepped the question when asked whether she would consider a run for president as an Independent if it could hurt Trump.
“What we’ve done in our politics is create a situation where we’re electing idiots. And so I don’t look at it through the lens of like, you know, is this what I should do or what I shouldn’t do. I look at it through the lens of how we elect serious people, and I think electing serious people can’t be partisan,” she said.
Cheney then said she was committed to helping elect other “good” candidates down the ballot and not any that are “aligned” with Donald Trump.
“We really need to make sure that everybody is active and engaged and involved, and I’m certainly going to be doing everything I can to support serious candidates,” Cheney said.
Last month, Cheney claimed Trump is not qualified to become president again, which drew backlash from conservatives.
Cheney expressed rage not long after Trump said he was “inclined” to “pardon” many of the Americans convicted during the January 6 Capitol riot in 2021
“Any candidate who says they will pardon January 6 defendants is not qualified to be President,” Cheney tweeted.
Civil Rights attorney Leo Terrell responded to Cheney: “You are not qualified to serve in Congress! That is why you lost by 60 percentage points!”
During the CNN-hosted town hall, Trump responded to pardoning the January 6 offenders.
“I am inclined to pardon many of them. I can’t say for every single one because a couple of them probably got out of control. But you know when you look at it, when you look at Antifa what they’ve done to Portland.”
When you look at Antifa and what they’ve done to Minneapolis and so many other places. Look what they did to Seattle and BLM; many people were killed. I’m not trying to justify anything. But you have two standards of justice in this country …
And then what they’ve done to these people, they’ve persecuted these people. And yeah, my answer is, if I get in … it will be a large portion of… And what they’ve done to so many people is nothing. Nothing! And then what they’ve done to these people is they’ve persecuted these people. And yeah, my answer is, I will most likely if I get in, I will say most likely it will be a large portion of them.”
