Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) condemned former President Trump on Sunday, calling him “an enemy of the Constitution” over his recent statements about the need for the Constitution to be terminated over his unfounded claims of widespread election fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Cheney took to Twitter to write about how Trump believes that “all rules, regulations and articles, even those found in the Constitution” should be terminated in order for the 2020 election to be overturned. She added that his views since Jan. 6, 2021, had not changed and that “no honest person” could continue denying “that Trump is an enemy of the Constitution.”
Cheney has been a local critic of Trump within the GOP. She is also the vice chairwoman of the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, and was one of the first to call out Trump over his post on Truth Social.
The White House and even some GOP members have condemned these latest statements by Trump. Among them was Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), who said that now that Trump has called for the Constitution to be terminated, “not a single conservative can legitimately support him, and not a single supporter can be called a conservative.”
Trump has since denied suggesting the termination of the Constitution in a post on Truth Social, but that clearly has not made the situation or his critics go away.
