Cheney Gives GOP an Ultimatum
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) says Republicans cannot be loyal to both former President Donald Trump and the U.S. Constitution, calling Trump a “domestic threat.”
“We are confronting a domestic threat that we have never faced before – and that is a former President who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our constitutional Republic,” Cheney said during a speech at the Reagan Library in California.
“And he is aided by Republican leaders and elected officials who have made themselves willing hostages to this dangerous and irrational man.”
Cheney urged Republicans to choose as “we cannot both be loyal to Donald Trump and loyal to the Constitution.”
The Congresswoman quoted former President Ronald Reagan, who said, “it is up to us in our time to choose and to choose wisely between the hard but necessary task of preserving peace and freedom and the temptation to ignore our duty and blindly hope for the best while the enemies of freedom grown stronger day by day.”
