Cheney blasts Marjorie Taylor Greene’s call for a ‘national divorce’ between liberal and conservative states

Former Representative Liz Cheney, R-Vio., on Monday denounced Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., who called America a “national divorce” and “undermining the federal government” for separating red and blue states. Said. ,

In a tweet in response to Green, R-Ga., Cheney said the far-right lawmaker’s comments were “unconstitutional.”

“Our country is governed by the Constitution,” Cheney Tweeted, “You took an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Secession is unconstitutional. No member of Congress should advocate secession, Marjorie.”

Cheney’s tweet comes hours after Greene tweeted his controversial statement.

“We need a national divorce. We need to secede from red states and blue states and shrink the federal government,” said Greene, R-Ga. wrote, “Everyone I talk to says the same thing. From the issues of the sick and hateful wake culture the Democrats’ seditious America shoved down our throats to the final policies, we’re done.

Green, an ally of former President Donald Trump who supported the January 6, 2021 Capitol attack, previously suggested calling for a “national divorce” in 2021.

During his final term in Congress, Cheney faced backlash from fellow Republicans after he publicly denounced Trump over the Capitol attack. She served on the House committee that investigated the attack and remained an outspoken critic of the former president’s false claims of widespread election fraud during the 2020 presidential election.

Green’s latest demand is among a series of incendiary comments that have drawn backlash. Greene was removed from his committee assignments in the previous Congress after comments that focused on the performance of Democratic lawmakers. (He was appointed to the Oversight and Homeland Security committees at the start of the new Congress last month.)

Greene is set to be Trump’s running mate in 2024, NBC News reported last month, and he has recently made an effort to rebrand himself as a politician who can bridge the divide in the GOP.
