Former Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney is not ruling out a run for the White House in the near future and plans to make a final decision in the coming months.

During a recent interview with The Washington Post, the anti-Trump Republican said she’s open to considering a third-party run for President, steering away from the already-crowded Republican primary field.

“Several years ago, I would not have contemplated a third-party run,” Cheney told The Washington Post. But “democracy is at risk” both at home and abroad, she said, citing former President Trump’s “continued grip on the Republican Party.” 

“We face threats that could be existential to the United States and we need a candidate who is going to be able to deal with and address and confront all of those challenges,” Cheney told the Post. “That will all be part of my calculation as we go into the early months of 2024.”

In October, Cheney refused to rule out a White House bid. She also said in her recent interview with the Post that she hasn’t ruled out voting for Democrat President Biden if he’s the 2024 nominee.

Cheney, who lost her 2022 midterm re-election bid, has repeatedly pushed against another Trump presidency. On Monday, Cheney issued a grim warning against supporting Trump.

“I hope that there are options and alternatives that reflect the important challenges that we’re facing, and that reflect leadership to meet those challenges, but that choice can never be Donald Trump because a vote for Donald Trump may mean the last election that you ever get to vote in,” she told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie on “Today.”

“And again, I don’t say that lightly, and I think it’s heartbreaking that that’s where we are, but people have to recognize that a vote for Donald Trump is a vote against the Constitution,” she continued.

She also said Monday that “there’s no question” that Trump would refuse to leave the White House at the end of his second four-year term if re-elected.

“He’s already attempted to seize power, and he was stopped, thankfully, and for the good of the nation and the republic,” she said. “But he said he will do it again. He’s expressed no remorse for what he did.”

She added that it’s “a very, very real threat and concern” that Trump will make himself a dictator if he wins the White House.

“I don’t say any of that lightly,” she said. “And frankly, it’s painful for me as someone who you know, has spent their whole life in Republican politics who grew up as Republican to watch what’s happening to my party, and to watch the extent to which Donald Trump himself has, you know, basically determined that that the only thing that matters is him his power, his success.”

    • Why do losers like her never see how utterly useless they truly are? She apparently thinks she is a hero to be celebrated for her work on that phony hollywood style Jan 6 production.

  1. Liz Cheney is another Hillary Clinton – can’t accept the fact that they are both losers. Neither would have ever achieved any fame or their former positions if it wasn’t for President Bill Clinton and Vice President Dick Cheney respectively. If either had any self-respect, they would fade away and find something meaningful to do with their useless lives. Their whole world revolves around me, me. Their ivory-castle existence is completely out-of-touch with what everyday Americans are enduring under Democrat rule. Their whole goal in life is to destroy President Trump and the U.S. Good riddance! Liz and Hillary, and take your bloated egos with you.

  2. Liz Cheney couldn’t get re-elected to congress what makes her think that she could even make a dent in President Trumps bid to get re-elected to the Presidency!!! She is a loser & in my opinion will never be elected to office as a republican ever again !!!

  3. Lezzie Lizzy can only run one thing…and that is her mouth. But seriously, she can even do that since she is looking more and more like a pig and not an elephant. However, she never was a real Republican elephant either. She has always been an Elitist Eastern liberal leftwing Globalist Soros loving OWG like her daddy.

  4. Why does anyone give her air time? She is no longer part of congress, always was a Democrat liberal in disguise. Newsflash Liz: No one cares what you think! Honesty has never been one of your traits!

  5. Is there no way to make that troll disappear? I’d like to see her and Chris Christy in a canoe going over the Niagara Falls.

  6. I hope she runs and puts ALL HER PERSONAL MONEY into the campaign.

    My understanding is Chris Cristy will be her Vice President

    Good luck to dem booth.
