A House Republican press conference Wednesday brought on awkwardness and showed the sharp divide between House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (WY) and Minority House Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA) as they were both asked whether former President Trump should speak at CPAC. Below is the short clip.
Reporter: “Do you believe former President Trump should speaking at CPAC?” @GOPLeader: “Yes he should…” @RepLizCheney: “That’s up to CPAC… I don’t believe that he should be playing a role in the future of the party or the country.” https://t.co/9DOkQaGr9a pic.twitter.com/n2J71yk2mx— The Hill (@thehill) February 24, 2021
A reporter asked, “Do you believe former President Trump should speaking at CPAC?”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded simply by saying, “Yes he should…”
Following the pause, Liz Cheney, who has been a vocal anti-Trump figure in Congress and voted to impeach the former president, had a much different statement. Cheney said, “That’s up to CPAC. I have been clear on my views about President Trump and the extent to which following January 6th I don’t believe that he should be playing a role in the future of the party or the country.”
Minority Leader McCarthy joking ended by saying, “Well on that high note, thank you very much.”
As you can see there is a divide among the Republicans as some want Trump banished from the party while many others of the GOP want him to remain the leader or at least involved in the GOP.
Cheney voting to impeach former President Trump caused Trump-aligned Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to go to the Wyoming State Capital to rally against Cheney and her policy. Hundreds of people showed up and she seems to be widely unpopular among her Republican constituents.
RINOs seem to be in exile as the America First Republicans are rising in power and support, while the neoconservatives like Liz Cheney are seemingly becoming very unpopular.
