Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said Wednesday that she would not support former President Trump if he ran again in 2024.

Fox News’s Neil Cavuto directly asked Cheney, the third-highest ranking Republican in the House, if she would support Trump in 2024 on his show, Mediaite reported.

“I would not,” Cheney responded. 

Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans to vote for Trump’s impeachment after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Cheney told Cavuto that Trump’s actions leading up to the riot “was the gravest violation of an oath of office by any president in American history.”

“We can’t embrace insurrection. We can’t minimize what happened on Jan. 6,” she added.

Trump previously went after Cheney after her impeachment vote, urging Republicans to vote her out of office. 

“So hopefully they’ll get rid of her with the next election,” Trump said. “Get rid of ‘em all.”

Cheney said after her impeachment vote that Trump does “not have a role as a leader of our party going forward.”

Trump has neither ruled out nor confirmed that he would try to run for the presidency again in 2024.

Cheney, who is gearing up for reelection in 2022, has raised a considerable amount of money despite calls from Trump to get her out of office, raking in $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2021.
