Liz Cheney, the former Republican representative from Wyoming, has not dismissed the possibility of entering the 2024 presidential race. Despite the election process already progressing, Cheney hinted at a potential candidacy over the weekend during a televised interview.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Cheney discussed the ongoing election developments with host Jake Tapper. She articulated her stance on the current candidates and reaffirmed her commitment to opposing Donald Trump. “I haven’t endorsed anybody in this presidential race, certainly would never support Donald Trump,” Cheney stated.

The former congresswoman expressed grave concerns about Trump’s rhetoric, indicating the dangers she perceives in his continuous statements. “We know what Donald Trump will do, because he’s telling us every day,” she commented, alluding to her knowledge of authoritarian governments and warning of similar patterns in Trump’s behavior.

When probed by Tapper about her intentions regarding the upcoming presidential election, Cheney remained evasive but opened the door to speculation. “Are you still considering it, or would you rule it out?” Tapper asked, to which Cheney replied, “I haven’t made any decisions about it yet.”

Cheney, a vocal critic of Trump, emphasized her dedication to ensuring he does not return to power. Her comment, “I’m going to do whatever is necessary to defeat Donald Trump,” suggested that her decisions moving forward would be heavily influenced by the evolving political landscape and her opposition to the former president.

As the presidential campaign heats up, Cheney’s future involvement remains uncertain. Nevertheless, her latest remarks have left political observers and voters alike pondering the possibility of her stepping into the fray as the election cycle unfolds.
