(DCWatchdog.com) – An infamous sore loser might be about to stage an “out-of-spite” run in the already crowded race for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination as former US Rep. Liz Cheney has declared she would work relentlessly to prevent former President Donald Trump from entering the White House again.
In an interview with the CNN program “State of the Union” on Sunday, former Wyoming Republican Rep. Cheney called the 45th president of the United States the “single most dangerous threat” to the nation.
At the same time, when discussing the possibility of her running for president in 2024, she didn’t rule it out, USA Today reports.
Last year, Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, lost the Wyoming GOP House primary to a pro-Trump candidate by dozens of points in the second-worst House incumbent primary loss in the last 60 years.
In the previous Congress, she was a member of the Democrats’ January 6 select committee.
In her interview, CNN host Jake Tapper brought up the likelihood of Trump being the Republican nominee again.
He inquired about what Americans could expect from another Trump presidency. Cheney responded directly, stating that Trump “cannot be the next president.”
“If he is, all of the things he attempted to do, but was stopped from doing by responsible people around him at the Department of Justice, at the White House counsel’s office, all of those things he will do. There will be no guardrails,” the former congresswoman declared.
“I think Donald Trump is the single most dangerous threat we face,” she said regarding the 2024 presidential race.
Tapper asked Cheney directly if she would become a candidate for the 2024 GOP nomination.
“I’m going to spend the next year between now and the election helping to elect serious people, helping to elect sane people to Congress… We’ve got to elect people who believe in the Constitution, and they take their responsibilities seriously in Congress,” Cheney explained.
She warned the “Trump folks” dispute the 2024 election results, meaning the House of Representatives could elect the president.
“We don’t want a situation where… Donald Trump has any possibility at all of prevailing under those circumstances,” Cheney said.
“But you’re not ruling out a presidential run?” the CNN host asked.
“No, I am not,” Cheney replied.
