US Republican Liz Cheney (R-Wyo), who happens to be the third-highest ranking one in the House, said on Wednesday, April 14, that if former president Donald Trump ran for office again in the 2024 elections, she would not vote for him.

Cheney made the comments at the end of an interview on Neil Cavuto’s show on Fox News. "Well, look, Neil, I’ve been very clear about my views about what happened on January 6th, about my views of the president’s culpability, I obviously voted to impeach him, I think that it was the gravest violation of an oath of office by any president in American history,” she explained, according to USSANews.

“I think for us as a party, we’ve got to be the party of hope and aspiration, and we cannot embrace insurrection, we can’t minimize what happened on January 6th, and I think that all of us regardless of partisanship, have an obligation and a duty to the Constitution," she said. When asked whether she would support Trump if he were the 2024 nominee, Cheney said bluntly and without pause: “I would not."

Cheney was one of the few Republicans to vote to impeach Trump after the riots at the US Capitol in January this year. Her response seems to have gotten Trump's attention because he issued a statement against her just about an hour later. “(S)o many people many people are looking to run against Crazy Liz Cheney — but we only want one,” the statement from Trump read. “She is so far down in Wyoming polls that the only way she can win is numerous candidates running against her and splitting the vote. Hopefully, that won’t happen,” he added. “I’ll make an Endorsement soon!” he said.

Many netizens took to Twitter to celebrate Cheney's comments. "Kudos to @Liz_Cheney! Few GOP politicians are brave enough to say this," said one. "Liz Cheney appears to be able to describe what Trump did on and leading up to Jan. 6 in plain, clear terms. If other Republicans are looking for some leadership on this," said another. Another user noted: "House Republican Liz Cheney — who voted to impeach Trump a second time — raised $1.5 million for her re-election campaign during the first three months of this year, in a new record for her political career." However, not all were pleased. One user said, "Liz Cheney is a shill for defense contractors and a disgrace to the party of Lincoln, Teddy R, Eisenhower, Reagan, and Trump."

"Liz Cheney says she won’t support Trump in 2024. It costs her nothing to say this because she knows Trump won’t somehow magically be a candidate in 2024, no matter how much the media hypes the notion. The media really has spun up a fictional alternate universe for ratings," the Palmer Report tweeted. "Liz Cheney, whose father along with Bush started the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, raking in billions for Halliburton and other oil and private military contractors, wants the war (and their profits) to continue. How shocking," tweeted another.
