Trump’s refusal to concede defeat puts the United States in a dangerous “no man’s land”

Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) said on CNN’s “The Lead” on Monday that Donald Trump’s refusal to concede defeat in the 2020 presidential election puts the nation in a dangerous “no man’s land.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked about New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s new book, saying Trump plans to stay in the White House after the election.

Cheney said: “I obviously haven’t seen his book, but sometimes people say, ‘Well, you know, what happened wasn’t so bad because if Mike Pence had rejected a list of voters, the Supreme Court would have sorted it out. There are a lot of ways people say it wasn’t as dangerous as it really was. And when you hear something like that, I think you have to recognize that we were in no man’s land and territory that we had never been before as a nation.

She added: “When you think of, well, the Supreme Court would have solved the problem, you have to ask yourself, but who would have applied the court’s decisions? And if you have a president who refuses to leave the White House or says he refuses to leave the White House, then whoever stands aside and says someone else will take care of it puts- even the nation in danger. It is clear that when you were when we were confronted, everyone had to stand up and take responsibility. And I think it’s no surprise that those are the feelings he would have expressed. I think, again, that only affirms the reality of the danger.
