Talking about her future, Cheney said she currently laments deciding in favor of Trump last November and didn’t explicitly preclude her very own official bid in 2024, conceding that her dad, previous Vice President Dick Cheney, might want to see her run however “he’s not evenhanded.”
“Right now, most of the Republican Party isn’t the place where I am,” she said.
