Republicans have been at odds since January 6th when rioters stormed the Capitol. Subsequently, President Trump (R) was impeached for a second time for allegedly inciting the riot. Some of his Republican "allies" voted in favor of impeaching the President, one of those Republicans being is Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney (R)

Since then, Republicans who staunchly support the 45th President such as Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) have warned that Cheney does not accurately represent the “competing vision for America that puts America and American people first” during an interview with Sean Hannity on FOX News.

In making a distinction with Cheney, Gaetz referred to her as an “America Last” politician.

As a result, the Florida lawmaker assured that taking into account that “the media is against us as an institution on the political right,” it’s time for the “America First” Republicans to fight for the future of the party.”

He has argued that leftists want "to control ALL media" in the past, and he believes that having this level of infighting does not do well for the GOP's political future.

According to Gaetz, this means that Cheney should not have the leadership position she currently has within the party.

“I’m going to Wyoming on Thursday to offer a strong defense of the America First agenda that President Trump championed and that made our country better,” Gaetz asserted.

He also expressed that “the principal job of the Conference Chair is to carry the message of their fellow Republicans, and most of the members of the Republican Conference don’t believe that Liz Cheney speaks for them. So it is untenable for her to remain in the position of Conference Chair.”

Echoing in his remarks, Florida Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R) voiced his support in Twitter, simply expressing that members should “BANISH LIZ CHENEY FROM THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!”
