Another President Donald Trump termed Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney’s defeat decisive “wonderful” for America, in a Tuesday night post to Truth Social.
Cheney has been vocally against the ex-president, while Harriet Hageman won the Republican primary and is now endorsed by him.
“Congratulations Harriet Hageman for her decisive and great win in Wyoming”, Trump stated.
” This is an amazing result for America and a total rebuke to the Unselect Committee political Hacks and Thugs. Liz Cheney needs to be embarrassed about her actions and spiteful and sanctimonious comments towards other people. She can now disappear into political inertia where she will, I’m sure, be happier than right now. Thank you WYOMING!”
Trump posted a message about Hageman winning, before Cheney made his concession speech.
“Now, she can finally vanish into the depths political oblivion.” Trump said

Trump and Cheney were once allies. However, their relationship was strained after January 6 2021. Cheney is the House Select Committee’s vice-chair to investigate the riot. However, she and Adam Kinzinger remain the only Republicans in the group.
Cheney was first elected in 2017 and served as the chair of the House Republican Conference from 2019 to 2021 when she was removed from the position.
