Former President Trump fired back at Liz Cheney and endorsed Wyoming GOP chairman Frank Eathorne’s reelection bid Thursday. He cited Eathorne’s censure of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) as his main reason.
“Perhaps, most importantly, Frank has Censured the incompetent Liz Cheney, who couldn’t care less about our brave soldiers overseas, and who is willing to fight ridiculous, endless wars instead of preparing for the Big Time enemies that may someday soon face our Country,” Trump said in a statement.
“Frank Eathorne continues to fight for our America First Policies as GOP Chairman of the Great State of Wyoming. He is highly respected by everyone, fighting for your Second Amendment and continually growing the Republican Party,” Trump said.
“Frank has my Complete and Total Endorsement for his re-election. He will never let you down!” Trump added.
The other day Cheney ripped Trump saying she would not support him in 2024 if he ran. From Yahoo:
Rep. Liz Cheney appeared Wednesday on Your World With Neil Cavuto Wednesday where the Wyoming Republican stunned the host with her blunt rejection of even the possibility of supporting former President Donald Trump if he were to be the GOP nominee in 2024.
“If Donald Trump were the 2024 nominee, would you support him?” Cavuto asked. “I would not,” Cheney replied without hesitation. Cavuto appeared to gather his thoughts before responding with a slow, “OK.”
Cheney has been vocal about her belief that Trump played a large role in causing the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, one of the few Republicans to do so, and voted to impeach him because of it. On Wednesday, Cheney doubled down.
“I’ve been very clear about my views of what happened on Jan. 6, about my views of the president’s culpability,” Cheney said.
“I obviously voted to impeach him. I think that it was the gravest violation of an oath of office by any president in American history, and I’m gonna continue to make sure people understand that.”
Trump has slammed Cheney, along with any other Republican who shares her beliefs, and Wednesday was no different.
In a statement following the interview, Trump called Cheney “crazy” and said he’d “soon” endorse a primary challenger.

It was a main argument used in July by pro-war House Dems & their key ally, Liz Cheney, to try to block Trump's withdrawal plan from Afghanistan:https://t.co/iT5GB3WPc1
