Trump Blasts 'Loser RINO' Liz Cheney, Vows to Endorse Her Primary Challenger
President Trump says he will meet with Republicans running against Rep. Cheney
President Donald Trump has released a new statement hammering "loser RINO" Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and vowing to help unseat the congresswoman.
Trump said Tuesday he is planning to meet with a number of Cheney’s primary opponents next week as he plans to endorse one of her challengers in the race.
Cheney is one of Trump's most vocal critics and one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach him following the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
In response, Trump is vowing to do everything in his power to oust the Wyoming Republican from her at-large seat.
"Paying close attention to the Wyoming House Primary against loser RINO Liz Cheney,” Trump said in a statement.
"Some highly respected pollsters tell me she’s toast in Wyoming after siding with Crazy Nancy Pelosi and supporting the Democrat Impeachment Hoax."
"And that’s just the beginning!" Trump warned.
"This is a ‘hot’ race with some very interesting candidates running against her.
"Remember though, in the end we just want ONE CANDIDATE running against Cheney.
"I’ll be meeting with some of her opponents in Bedminster next week and will be making my decision on who to endorse in the next few months.
"JUST ONE CANDIDATE. Thank you!”
The Senate vote took place after Trump had already departed from office.
While 57 senators voted to convict, that figure fell short of the threshold required for a conviction, and Trump was acquitted.
Cheney, an outspoken Trump critic, was removed from serving as House Republican Conference Chair in May and Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York was chosen to fill the slot following Cheney's ouster.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has named Cheney as one of the lawmakers who will serve on a select committee tasked with investigating the Jan. 6 episode.
Cheney and GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois were the only Republican lawmakers to vote in favor of establishing the committee.
Kinzinger was also one of the 10 House Republicans who voted in favor of impeaching Trump earlier this year.
Cheney, whose father is former Vice President Dick Cheney, has served as Wyoming's lone U.S. House member since 2017.
"The people of Wyoming are gonna have a very clear choice between somebody who is loyal to the Constitution and somebody whose claim is loyalty to Donald Trump, and I'm confident that people will make the right decision," Cheney said on Tuesday, according to The Hill.
