Liz Cheney: Trump ‘threatens to unravel our Republic’

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said in a post on X Thursday that former President Trump “threatens to unravel our Republic.”

“Take a few minutes today to read David McCullough’s speech: ‘The Glorious Cause of America.’ For 248 years, our freedom has survived. Now, its defense is up to us. We must defeat the former president who threatens to unravel our Republic,” Cheney, who’s emerged as a vocal Trump critic, said.

“We must not fail.”

Last Sunday, Cheney, who was one of 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach Trump in the wake of the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol and served on the panel investigating the incident, went after Trump for reposting a meme in which he indicated that the Wyoming Republican committed “treason.”

“Donald — This is the type of thing that demonstrates yet again that you are not a stable adult— and are not fit for office,” she said at the time in a post on X.

Cheney’s post came in response to a post from MeidasTouch, which shared a screenshot of the former president reposting a meme on Truth Social indicating that she should face prosecution via televised military tribunals.

Cheney’s PAC in early June made a subtle dig at the former president in an advertisement centered around D-Day.

“America deserves a president as good and steadfast as our nation, a president of character, driven by a noble purpose, one who honors the sacrifices of our troops,” Cheney said in the ad. 

“Not a man consumed by spite, revenge and self-pity,” Cheney, who lost her primary to a Trump-backed challenger, continued.

Steven Cheung, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign, said in response to Cheney’s latest post that she “has decided not to seek treatment for Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

“She lives a miserable existence befitting a loser of the highest order,” Cheung added in an emailed statement to The Hill.
