Former Rep Liz Cheney (R) criticized Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for his comments on the Ukraine-Russia conflict. DeSantis had suggested that the United States should not involve itself in the conflict, as it is not a direct threat to the country.
Cheney called DeSantis’ position “weakness,” saying it was “provocative” and would only embolden Russian aggression. She also criticized former President Donald Trump for his handling of Russia, saying that he had weakened American influence in the world.
Cheney has been a vocal critic of Trump and his supporters in the Republican Party and has been advocating for a return to traditional conservative values. The Ukraine-Russia conflict has been ongoing since 2014 when Russia annexed Crimea and began supporting separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine.
