Representative Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.) recently compared Donald Trump’s false election claims to the rhetoric of the Chinese Communist Party, calling the former president’s mistruths “very dangerous and damaging.”

“When you listen to Donald Trump talk now, when you hear the language he’s using now, it is essentially the same things that the Chinese Communist Party, for example, says about the United States and our democracy,” Cheney said during an episode of The Axe Files podcast released on Monday.

“When he says that our system doesn’t work … when he suggests that it’s, you know, incapable of conveying the will of the people, you know, that somehow it’s failed — those are the same things that the Chinese government says about us,” Cheney added. “It’s very dangerous and damaging … and it’s not true.”

The congresswoman’s comments come nearly a month after she was ousted from her House leadership role over her repeated criticisms of the former president and his claims that the 2020 election was rigged against him. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) said Cheney’s attempts at “relitigating the past” served as a distraction from the party’s focus on moving forward and winning future elections.

Just after being removed from her role, Cheney pledged to “do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.” according to The Hill.

Representative Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.) replaced Cheney as House GOP Conference Chair.
