Appearing with Chris Wallace, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said she will not be stepping down after being censured by Republicans in her state. Cheney also argued that President Trump no longer has a role in the party as a leader.
Wallace asked Cheney ““Is this still the party of Donald Trump, and does Marjorie Taylor Greene still hold a solid place in that party?””
“We are the party of Abraham Lincoln. We are the party of Ronald Reagan,” Cheney replied. “We have to really take a hard look at who we are and what we stand for, and what we believe in. I think when you look at both his actions leading up to what happened on January 6th, the fact that he was impeached in a bipartisan fashion, the fact that he lost the presidency, the fact that we lost the senate. We have to be in a position where we can say we stand for principle. We stand for ideals.”
She continued “somebody who has provoked an attack on the United States Capitol to prevent the counting of electoral votes, which resulted in five people dying, who refused to stand up immediately when he was asked to stop the violence, that is a person who does not have a role as the leader of our party going forward.”
