Cheney Says She Could Vote Biden In Next Election

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY)  said she would not vote for former President Donald Trump, adding that she may vote for President Joe Biden instead.

Cheney, a fierce critic of the former president, made the revelation during Wednesday’s broadcast of ABC’s The View.”

“If it came down to Biden v. Trump, would you vote for Biden?” the View Co-host Joy Behar asked the former lawmaker.

“I’m not going to endorse anybody today. And I think that, again, we don’t know exactly what the choice will be. I’d say that I will never vote for Donald Trump,” Cheney said. “There are some conservatives who are trying to make this claim that somehow Biden is a bigger risk than Trump. My view is, I disagree with a lot of Joe Biden’s policies. We can survive bad policies. We cannot survive torching the Constitution. I think post-2024 election, we’re going to see just a huge tectonic shift in our politics.”

The former GOP lawmaker also took a swipe at the Republican party, adding that the GOP is caught up in a cult of personality that it can not survive.

“I think that the Republican party itself is clearly so caught up in this cult of personality that it’s very hard to imagine that the party can survive,” Cheney said. “I think increasingly it’s clear that once we get through 2024, we’re going to have to have something else, something new. I believe the country has to have a party that’s based on conservative principles and values — where we can engage with the Democrats on substance and on policy.”

Cheney, who was part of the January 6 Select Committee, has been vocal about her opposition to Trump winning the 2024 election. The former lawmaker on Sunday told CBS’s “Face the Nation” she believes the former president engaged in insurrection and should be disqualified from ever holding office.

“If you look at the Select Committee’s work, we made a criminal referral with respect to the part of the 14th amendment that talks about providing aid and comfort to an insurrection,” Cheney told host Margaret Brennan. “I certainly believe that Donald Trump’s behavior rose to that level, I believe that he ought to be disqualified from holding office in the future. It’s working its way through the courts. And in the meantime, and in any case, we have to be prepared to ensure that we can defeat him at the ballot box, which ultimately I believe we’ll be able to do.”
