Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Liz Cheney Slams Trump For 'Despicable, Racist' Attack On Elaine Chao”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) slammed former President Donald Trump on Tuesday for his racist reference to Elaine Chao and his violent rhetoric directed at her husband, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

In a post last Friday on his social media platform, Truth Social, Trump referred to Chao as McConnell’s “China loving wife, Coco Chow!” and wrote that McConnell “has a DEATH WISH” because he supported Democratic-sponsored legislation.

Trump “could well cause violence against the Republican leader of the Senate,” Cheney said at a Syracuse University event, adding that his comments about Chao constitute a “despicable, racist attack.”

Chao, who is Taiwanese American, served as the former president’s transportation secretary but resigned in response to the Trump-fueled riot at the U.S. Capitol last year.

Cheney, the vice chairwoman of the House select committee investigating the attack on the Capitol, lost her primary in August. She criticized Republican Party leaders for not speaking out against Trump’s latest remarks.
