Former Vice President Dick Cheney attacked ex-President Donald Trump as a “coward” and a prime danger to the United States in a brand-new project advertisement for his child,Rep Liz Cheney, days prior to her Republican main election in Wyoming.
“In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who has posed a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump,” the senior Cheney stated in a straight-to-camera advertisement, which was shared online Thursday afternoon.
“He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him,” stated Cheney, 81, who served for 8 years as vice president in the George W. Bush administration.
“He is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters,” Cheney stated. “He lost his election and he lost big. I know it, he knows it, and deep down, I think most Republicans know it.”
The 60- 2nd area, entitled “He Knows It,” will stumble upon Wyoming and online starting Friday, the Cheney project stated. The advertisement comes less than 2 weeks prior to the Wyoming Republican main, where the incumbent Cheney seems in difficulty.
Cheney is Trump’s most significant Republican critic in Congress and a leading member of the House choose committee examining him over theJan 6, 2021, Capitol riot. For her rejection to pull back from her criticisms of the previous president, she has actually been mainly ostracized by her celebration and condemned by Trump’s faithful base of Republican citizens.
Polls of theAug 16 Wyoming main program Cheney tracking her top Republican challenger, Trump- backed Harriet Hageman, by large margins. Hageman has actually echoed Trump’s incorrect claims that his loss to President Joe Biden in the 2020 election was “rigged” by prevalent scams.
Yet Cheney, unlike some other House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for prompting theJan 6 riot, has actually maintained her singing attacks on Trump over the “Big Lie.”
Her perseverance might have harmed her standing amongst some Republican citizens, however it has actually not hindered her fundraising efforts: She has actually far outraised her rivals while ensuring essential donors and fans that she will continue to hold Trump liable. Dick Cheney has actually been associated with these talks also, CNBC formerly reported.
“Lynne and I are so proud of Liz for standing up for the truth, doing what’s right, honoring her oath to the Constitution when so many in our party are too scared to do so,” Dick Cheney stated in the advertisement.
“Liz is fearless. She never backs down from a fight. There is nothing more important she will ever do than lead the effort to make sure Donald Trump is never again near the Oval Office. And she will succeed,” he stated in the advertisement.
“I’m Dick Cheney. I proudly voted for my daughter. I hope you will too,” he stated.
