Former President Donald J. Trump has no shortage of critics, and on the list is Liz Cheney, Former Wyoming Republican Representative, who recently gave an explosive interview calling the 77-year-old the 'single most dangerous threat' to the United States. Cheney sat down with CNN's State of the Union host Jake Tapper to discuss her own presidential run and the future of America if Trump gets re-elected. Tapper questioned, "Donald Trump is likely to be the next Republican presidential nominee... It could happen. What would a second Donald Trump term look like?"

It's worth noting that Cheney has been one of the most vocal Republican critics of Trump. In fact, previously, her staunch disapproval of the ex-President even cost her a congressional seat. as per The Guardian. She was also the Vice Chair of the House Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. "There will be no guardrails. And everyone has been warned," she continued. "There could be no question that he will unravel the institutions of our democracy," Cheney added, per CNN

Her fiery comments on Trump's re-election came at a time when the presidential hopeful has ninety criminal charges for allegedly trying to overturn the 2020 election against Joe Biden. Although she asserted that the American people should do anything to prevent Trump from 'setting foot anywhere near' the Oval Office, what if he still makes it? Tapper asked, "If it came down to it, even though you disagree with Joe Biden on almost every issue under the sun, would you vote for him [Biden] than Donald Trump?" Cheney said we are 'gonna see what happens' and 'gonna see how things unfold.' She continued, "I think Donald Trump is the single most dangerous threat we face," while also talking about other candidates in the presidential race.

The host interrupted, "Would you be one of them?" Cheney responded, "I will definitely spend the year until the 2024 election helping elected candidates who believe in the Constitution and who take their responsibilities seriously to Congress." Tapper asked, "But you're not ruling out a presidential run?" "No, I'm not," Cheney concluded. She also emphasized she wouldn't take any step that would further help Trump gain more votes, for instance, going for an independent bid that would pull votes from President Biden.
