Responding to the increasing alliance between former President Bush and RINO Liz Cheney from Wyoming, former President Trump issued a fierce comment reminding Americans of the past devastation that the Bush-Cheney alliance has caused.
Cheney, one of the GOP’s loudest critics of Trump, is the daughter of former VP Dick Cheney, who was one of the creators of the Iraq War policy created by Bush.
Bush announced this week that he would be helping raise money for Liz Cheney, who is getting targeted by Trump-backed GOP member Harriet Hageman in a primary battle next year. Former Bush adviser Karl Rove is also supporting Cheney.

In a comment on his website, Donald Trump savaged the whole group.
“RINO former President Bush and his flunky Rove are supporting warmongering and very terribly polling, Liz Cheney,” Trump said.
“Bush is the president who got us into the Middle East quicksand and, after spending trillions and killing almost a million people, the Middle East was in worse shape even after 21 years than when he started his stupidity,” Trump stated.
“It ended with Joe Biden’s very embarrassing and the worst withdrawal in history, from Afghanistan, a complete surrender, leaving $85 Billion dollars of military equipment and many young lives lost,” Trump said.

Trump continued on to say that he had earned gratitude from the Cheney clan during his White House.
“Bush did not have the bravery to give a pardon to his VP’s Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby, even though Cheney begged him. He would not do it, and they didn’t speak for years. I didn’t know Scooter, but I gave him a complete pardon — not because they requested, but because I thought he deserved it. He suffered a lot. Former VP Cheney called to effusively thank me. Now he’s siding with his daughter who is so terrible for Wyoming and the U.S. that she is at record lows in the polls,” Trump said.
Trump was pointing to his 2018 pardon of Lewis Libby, who was charged with obstruction of justice, perjury and issuing false comments in connection to the investigation into leaks about the identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame.
