Rep. Liz Cheney stays in the news cycle for all the wrong reasons.
In a recent interview on Fox News Rep. Liz Cheney went on air and said she would not vote for Trump if he ran in 2024.
That didn’t sit well with President Trump and he responded almost immediately!
In his response, Trump was quoted saying ” So many people are looking to run against Crazy Liz Cheney — but we only want one,”.

Here’s Trump’s full response to Liz Cheney:
The Blaze covered both Trump and Cheney’s comments, see what they had to say:
U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the third-highest ranking Republican in the House, said that if former President Donald Trump ran again for president in 2024 that she would not vote for him, and Trump responded immediately.
“I think for us as a party, we’ve got to be the party of hope and aspiration, and we cannot embrace insurrection, we can’t minimize what happened on January 6th, and I think that all of us regardless of partisanship, have an obligation and a duty to the Constitution.”
“If Donald Trump were the 2024 nominee, would you support him?” asked Cavuto.
“I would not,” said Cheney without pause.
News of the admission from Cheney, who was one of the few Republican members of Congress to vote to impeach Trump after the U.S. Capitol rioting, apparently reached the former president, who released a statement against her about an hour later.
“[S]o many people many people are looking to run against Crazy Liz Cheney — but we only want one,” read the statement from Trump.
“She is so far down in Wyoming polls that the only way she can win is numerous candidates running against her and splitting the vote. Hopefully, that won’t happen,” he added. “I’ll make an Endorsement soon!”

The Washington Examiner got the scoop too:
President Donald Trump lambasted Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, two senior Republicans who voted in favor of impeaching or convicting him following the Jan. 6 riot.
Trump said it was “great news for the Republican Party” that Murkowski has considered not seeking reelection and that challengers have emerged for Cheney’s seat in Congress. He further added that he will be making “an endorsement soon.”
Trump’s statement follows Cheney’s Wednesday comment that she will not support him if he becomes the 2024 Republican presidential nominee.
“I would not,” the third-ranking Republican in the House said when asked whether she’d back Trump.
Cheney, alongside nine other GOP representatives, voted to impeach the former president after he was charged with inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection that led to hundreds of arrests, damage at the Capitol, and a monthslong lockdown. Murkowski, joined by six other Republican senators, voted to convict Trump of the offense.
For the first time in their political careers, many RINOS will face stiff competition in the upcoming primaries all thanks to President Trump’s Save America PAC.
