Recently, former Rep. Liz Cheney appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union,” where she claimed Joe Biden is providing better leadership on the international stage than former President Donald Trump. The interview centered around the recent violent conflict between Israel and Hamas.
Host Jake Tapper prompted the conversation by introducing comments that Trump made about Netanyahu. “He insulted the defense minister of Israel called him a jerk and praised Hezbollah and did it surprise you that Trump could say all of that about the prime minister while they were still burying dead?” he said.
Cheney responded, seemingly implying that Republican presidential candidates should be asked their opinions on Trump’s comments, presumably to attack the former president. “They were appalling comments. You know, you’re absolutely right, that there should a response, I think that every Republican member of Congress ought to be asked about think comments. Every Republican candidate for the presidency ought to be asked about this comments.”
The former Wyoming representative asserted that Trump is “not fit to be president” over Cheney’s allegations that he has mishandled classified intelligence on the global stage. According to Cheney, who many consider a RINO (Republican in name only) and traitor to her party, Trump advocated for America’s enemies.
She continued, “Donald Trump, that he reportedly shared Israeli intelligence with the Russians very early in his term. He also, as we know now from the indictments that we’ve seen from Jack Smith, shared high lit classified military documents relating to a military action potentially against Iran. He shared that with Mark Meadow’s ghost writers and political consultants according to the indictments. So if you think about not only is he out there advocating for and complementing America’s adversaries and terrorist organizations that slaughter innocents, he also seems to have shared very highly classified intelligence information both ours and the Israeli’s, in fact, with adversaries. So I think it is simply the latest example of why Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.”
When Tapper inquired who Cheney thought would be a better international leader between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, she insisted it was “certainly Biden.” It isn’t clear if Cheney considered the slew of foreign policy disasters that have occurred under the Biden administration, such as the catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan, the handling of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, and the weak stance taken on America’s adversaries on the global stage.
The American Tribune also recently reported on comments made by Cheney where she attacked Jim Jordan and former President Trump. The former representative even suggested she may consider a presidential run in 2024.
“What we’ve seen is a result of the leadership decisions that Kevin McCarthy made back after the 2020 election and certainly after January 6. Looking the other way in the face of the kind of assault on our democracy that we’ve seen from Donald Trump and his allies in the house, including Jim Jordan. elevating those members, frankly, some of whom are white supremacists. Some of whom are anti-semitic, and a number of whom were involved directly in the attempt to seize power and overturn the election,” she said.
