“I was never going to support Joe Biden, and I do regret the vote,” Cheney told ABC News on Friday. “It was a vote based on policy, based on substance and in terms of the kinds of policies he put forward that were good for the country. But I think it’s fair to say that I regret the vote.”
Four months after the election, Trump and Republican lawmakers proceed to unfold “the big lie” that the 2020 election was stolen.
“The 2020 presidential election was not stolen,” Cheney tweeted last week in response to a Trump assertion calling the November outcomes “fraudulent.”
Cheney was additionally one in all 10 Republicans who voted to question Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 assault on Congress. Earlier this week, Republican lawmakers tried to rewrite historical past on the rebel on the U.S. Capitol by portraying the rioters as victims.
“We have to recognize what it means for the nation to have a former president who has not conceded and who continues to suggest that our electoral system cannot function, cannot do the will of the people,” Cheney instructed ABC News.
