Some in the Republican Party are still fighting to preserve the legacy and influence of Donald Trump.
No where is this more apparent than with the current GOP efforts to dislodge Rep. Liz Cheney from power after she made anti-Trump votes after the riots at the nation’s Capital.
“By ousting her, what we’re saying is, we are repudiating your repudiation of the Trump policies and the Trump agenda and her attacks on the president,” said Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs. “So, right now, John, if I were to say this, President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party. And when she’s out there attacking him, she’s attacking the leader of the Republican Party, and she’s attacking those of us who supported President Trump. She’s attacking the base of the Republican Party, who support President Trump. That is really the nub of this issue.”
Donald Trump got more good news from Biggs when he commented on whether the voters still support the former president:
They’re still supportive of President Trump. All the polling indicates that President Trump is still the titleholder. She can tell what her vision of the truth is, but she can’t do it as the leader of the Republican Party in Congress. And that’s what she was trying to do. And if she wants to say what she wants to say once she leaves, that’s great. If she has those opinions, that’s her business. That’s up to her — between her and her constituency. But when you take it out, and you’re acting as the person over all the Republicans in Congress, guess what? You have got to eat some of what your own personal feelings are for what 90% of our conference believes, and actually higher than 90%.
