.@Liz_Cheney is a conservative patriot who dutifully served our nation in the House of Representatives. Donald Trump should spend less time attacking those who disagree with him and more time bolstering the legal defense for his MANY criminal charges.

Humiliation in international affairs comes in many forms, often unexpectedly. It buried President Joe Biden on Friday, piling mortification onto his administration’s foreign policy cowardice.
