Liz Cheney Calls on Americans to Unite Against Trump

President Joe Biden called Liz Cheney on Wednesday after the Wyoming congresswoman and vocal critic of former President Donald Trump was defeated in her state’s Republican primary.

Biden reached out to Cheney, who earned the ire of the former president when she voted to impeach him over his role in the January 6, 2021 insurrection and her subsequent work on the congressional committee investigating the matter, according to a person familiar with the conversation.
