Cheney attacks Trump again
Trump issued a statement Monday morning through his Save America PAC proclaiming that the presidential election “will, from this day forward, be known as THE BIG LIE!” Cheney didn’t like it, who hit back on Twitter less than an hour later.
“The 2020 presidential election was not stolen,” Cheney wrote. “Anyone who claims this is the case is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their backs on the rule of law and poisoning our democratic system.

Trump shuts down Cheney
Trump hit back in a personal statement.
“Liz Cheney is so low in the polls in Wyoming, and has so little support, even from the Wyoming Republican Party, that she’s looking for a way out of her congressional race. Based on all the polls, there’s no way she can win, ”Trump mentionned.
“She will either be yet another lobbyist, or perhaps embarrass her family by running for president, in order to save face,” he added. “This hawkish fool wants to stay in the Middle East and Afghanistan for another 19 years, but doesn’t look at the big picture – Russia and China!”
Cheney was one of ten House Republicans to vote to impeach Trump, for allegedly inciting the Capitol riot in January, a move that put her in hot water with many Tories.

Trump ‘beyond serious’ plans to run again
Much to his dismay, Trump has said he plans to run for president in 2024.
“First of all, it’s long,” Trump said last month. “The chances, the chances. What are the chances? Listen, I have huge numbers. No one ever got the numbers I have. No sitting president has approached.
“There is more popularity now than there was the day before the election because they see how bad things are at the border,” he continued. “They see what’s going on. They see that their guns are going to disappear – their Second Amendment. Their taxes are increasing. Regulations are exploding. Jobs will increase. “
