WATCH: Liz Cheney REACTS to Trump’s cancelled meeting with the Taliban, but not like you’d expect…

Tonight Liz Cheney was on Special Report to discuss Trump’s secret meeting with the Taliban at Camp David. She got everyone’s attention this morning when she tweeted this:

I completely agree with her. The Taliban have no place on American soil whatsoever.

She discussed this on Special Report with Bret Baier:



I must say I feel like Cheney was pulling her punches. She is right to be glad that Trump cancelled the meeting, however it was clear she didn’t want to criticize Trump directly for planning the meeting in the first place. And this after she said that we can’t trust the Taliban and that they have no place here.

If Obama had planned suggested bringing the Taliban to Camp David, Republicans, including Cheney, would have been no less than scathing in response. But I get it. Trump is so outspoken against his critics that Republicans don’t want to start a war with him and his more dedicated Trump supporters, especially going into an election year.

Trump today said that it was his own idea to meet with the Taliban at Camp David, that he took his own advice:

Like Cheney, I’m very glad Trump made the right decision in the end. But there really should have never been a meeting in the first place and had it happened, I suspect Republicans like Cheney might have been more vocal in criticizing Trump for it. And rightly so.
