Republicans claim to profess their loyalty to Donald Trump ahead of the November election.
But some are actively working behind the scenes to defeat him.
And Donald Trump was just betrayed by this top Republican and you won’t believe who it was.
One of Donald Trump’s most popular campaign promises was to end America’s involvement in endless wars in the Middle East.
Donald Trump set about making good on that promise by striking a peace deal with the Taliban that would end the 19-year-long war in Afghanistan and finally bring the troops home.
The President began laying the groundwork to announce he was bringing home at least 4,000 of the 8,000 troops remaining in Afghanistan until Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney – the number three ranking Republican in the House – teamed with Democrat Jason Crow to pass an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would hamstring the President’s ability to bring the troops home.
The Intercept reported that, “The imposed conditions are by no means trivial: for these troop reductions from Afghanistan to be allowed, the Defense Department must be able to certify, among other things, that leaving Afghanistan ‘will not increase the risk for the expansion of existing or formation of new terrorist safe havens inside Afghanistan’ and ‘will not compromise or otherwise negatively affect the ongoing United States counter terrorism mission against the Islamic State, al Qaeda, and associated forces.’”
Cheney is the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney and Donald Trump won the GOP nomination campaigning against the Bush/Cheney foreign policy of endless wars in every country in the Middle East.
But now with the election just four months away, Cheney is trying to exact revenge in helping Joe Biden defeat Donald Trump by denying the President the ability to fulfill one of his core campaign promises.
