U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney appeared on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning to talk the Democratic National Convention, hours after she won the Wyoming primary election.
Cheney hasn’t been shy about her voicing her opinion about the Democratic presidential and vice-presidential candidates, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, respectively. Last week, she tweeted that Harris was a “radical liberal” who wanted to raise taxes and take away guns.
On the Wednesday morning appearance, Cheney said that if Biden and other Democrats won the general election in November, the country wouldn’t see an economic recovery.
“The economic policies that we have seen from President [Donald] Trump and from the Republicans in the House and the Senate over the course of last three-and-a-half years, the cuts in regulation, the cuts in taxes, those are the kinds of things that we have to see to bring the economy back again, to get people back to work,” she said.
“Socialism, which is the promise of Bernie Sanders and A[lexandria] O[casio] C[ortez], they have a chokehold on the Democratic platform, on Joe Biden’s policies going forward. They are the ones that will be setting the policy into the future. That would be an absolute devastation for this country.”
She added that Sanders, Ocasio Cortez and Biden were advocating for socialism while destroying the nation.
Cheney praised Trump’s work on illegal immigration during her Fox appearance, saying his border wall was important because Democrats wanted to use taxpayer funds to give free health care to illegal immigrants.
She also touched on former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s appearance at the DNC, criticizing his work on the Iran nuclear deal framework in 2015.
The representative ended her appearance with a critique of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party, saying Pelosi “failed to lead.”
“[Republicans] feel really good about our chances to take a message to the American people that we are the party that is going to bring back economic recovery, that’s going to bring back national security, defeat this virus, and get the economy going again,” she said.
