Who is Alyssa Farah? Ex Trump White House adviser says she won’t support him if he runs for president in 2024
Farah is supporting Liz Cheney against Trump's continuing claim that the 2020 election was 'rigged'
Former President Donald Trump’s White House adviser, Alyssa Farah, has declared that she is not going to support him in his 2024 potential presidential run. The 31-year-old reportedly left her ex-employer in December 2020, long before the Capitol riots that witnessed the death of five people, including a police officer. It has been said that the January 6 insurrection was the result of Trump’s false claim that President Joe Biden “won because the Election was Rigged”.
On Sunday, Farah had a conversation with MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan, where she spoke in favor of Liz Cheney, who has been ousted from the House GOP leadership after she denounced the 74-year-old's allegations that the election was “rigged”. “The GOP is careening down a strategically unwise path and morally reprehensible one, to be completely candid with you. Liz Cheney did the right thing. We shouldn't condemn people for simply telling the facts. Like, facts matter, she did the right thing. But that shouldn't be brave or heroic but just what our leaders do.”
She continued, “But there's a perception we care more about loyalty to the former president and wanting to gloss over the election and Jan 6. My unsolicited advice to my fellow Republicans would be the truth tends to come to the top. It's better to address it now, come to grips with what went wrong, and accept it. Because we're going to be dealing with in the midterms and 2024.”
However, the former White House Director of Strategic Communications and Assistant to the President noted that there is still some hope for the Republicans as Representative for New York's 21st congressional district Elise Stefanik is “moderate” despite her support for Trump. However, when Hasan questioned Stefanik’s “moderate” nature, while referring to her previous comment when she reportedly alleged that 140,000 Georgia voters were "fake" and that Biden actually lost in the state, Farah said she’s “not familiar with the comments”. She added, “I'm not familiar with the comments, so wouldn't want to comment further. But, no, that's absolutely ridiculous. We've litigated in states around the country and been thrown out. There's no there there.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Farah gave a piece of advice to the GOP by saying if they want to get hold of the White House, they should do it on the merits and policy. She also mentioned, “I will not support Donald Trump in 2024.”
Meanwhile, several people on Twitter have reacted to the interview as one user tweeted, “It’s always ‘former officials’ who tell the truth. Never current.” Another user stated, “But this woman supported Trump & his policies 100% - she is just as guilty as he is Amazing how these toadies and enablers change their tune once they leave the WH.” “no no no... these shitbags do not get to rehab their reputations now that their boss isn’t in power. The time to speak was at the beginning, not now that you have to polish up a resume,” the third added. A comment read, “‘As a brown woman’ she had problems with Trump’s racism. Brown woman? Yeah right.”
