Trump’s statement criticizes Trump for her “vitriol and awfulness” after she was revoked from the Republican leadership

The Republican U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who voted in favor of Trump’s impeachment, was removed from leadership status by the Republican House caucus on the morning of the 12th.

After Cheney lost her caucus leadership position, Trump issued a statement on the morning of the 12th, describing her as a “vitriolic, awful person. The former House Republican Caucus No. 3, Liz Chinnie, had been openly opposed to Trump’s election conspiracy theories, becoming a thorn in the side of the pro-Trump camp.

The pro-Trump Republican U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (D-NY) will replace him in the caucus leadership vacancy.

Reuters reported that the reformist faction led by Taylor had previously been supported by several heavyweight Republicans, including former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, former EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman, former Transportation Secretary Mary Peters, and former U.S. Rep. (Dent), Comstock (Barbara Comstock), Ribble (Reid Ribble), Edwards (Mickey Edwards) and others.
