Former Vice President Dick Cheney attacked President Donald Trump, calling him the greatest “threat” to the republic in a new video statement.
“In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump,” Cheney stated as he scowled into the camera.
“He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence, to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him,” Dick Cheney said, reffering to Trump.
“He’s a coward, a real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters,” the former vice president continued over patriotic music.
“He lost his election, and he lost big. I know it, he knows it, and deep down, I think most Republicans know it.”]
Cheney, who Democrats once hated, is now seen as a wise statesman in the battle to stop Trump from returning to the White House.
Cheney left office with an astonishingly low approval rating of just 13 percent, according to The Atlantic.
Cheney is also viewed as the central orchestrator of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which cost thousands of lives and destabilized multiple regions.
However, according to Cheney, Trump, who started no new wars under his presidency, is now the devil incarnate.
Cheney and his daughter, Liz, were among the few Republicans to attend a ceremony commemorating the first anniversary of the January 6 riot, where they linked arms with leftists as former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
