GOP Gov. Hutchinson Attacks Trump – Says Liz Cheney Shouldn’t Be Removed

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) went on CNN on Tuesday to argue that House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) should not be removed from her leadership position. He also attacked former President Donald Trump, claiming that he is “dividing” the Republican Party.

“I pointed out in our last segment it’s the former president, Donald Trump, who’s obsessing about the last election and can’t let go of the past and not look toward the future,” said host John Berman. “What would your message be to him, who the vast majority of his messages from Mar-a-Lago have been all been election lies?”

Whenever we do not have the president in power from our party, you have divided leadership — you have many different voices,” Hutchinson responded. “And former President Trump is dividing our party, and so it’s important that we not unite with someone who is dividing our party. Let’s talk about those ideas, let’s talk about the future, let’s talk about the differences with the Biden administration. That’s what builds our party.”

“And so I don’t believe Liz Cheney should be ousted for a vote of conscience,” he added. “I believe that we need to concentrate on more things that bring us together than to separate us, and going down and seeing former President Trump, to me, causes more division than anything else.”

Hutchinson Distances Himself From Trump

Hutchinson has publicly distanced himself from Trump in the past, urging the party to move on from the former president back in January.

“We got to make sure that we don’t divide our party,” Hutchinson said at the time, according to Newsweek. “I’m more troubled by someone going in and opposing Liz Cheney because she took a different position than many others in the party. That’s the kind of thing that tears our party apart, we need to not start primarying everyone because we don’t like how they handle things post-election.”

Hutchinson doubled down on this the next month, saying that Trump “should not define our future. We have got to define it for ourself.”
