Could Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney be considering a presidential run against Donald Trump? During an interview with ABC News’s Jonathan Karl, the Congresswoman lamented that the Republican Party can’t survive under the leadership of Donald Trump.
“Can the Republican party survive, in the way you’ve known it, if Donald Trump is again chosen?” Karl asked.
“It can’t survive if he’s our nominee,” Cheney said. “I think that he can’t be the party nominee, and I don’t think the party would survive that.”
She added, “I believe in the party, and I believe in what the party can be and what the party can stand for. And I’m not ready to give that up. Those of us who believe in Republican principles have a responsibility to lead the party back to what it can be, and to reject so much of the toxin and the vitriol.”
Karl then asked if the Congresswoman has ruled out running for president in 2024 in an attempt to keep Trump from becoming the Republican nominee.
“I haven’t made a decision about that yet.” she said. “And I’m obviously very focused on my re-election, I’m very focused on the January 6th committee. I’m very focused on my obligations to do the job I have now. And I’ll make a decision about ’24 down the road.
