Skip to comments.Former VP DICK CHENEY: I Will Support GOP Nominee

Former Vice President Dick Cheney will support Donald Trump, he told CNN Friday, an important move as the presumptive Republican nominee is encountering intense resistance from senior members of his own party.
Cheney told CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel that he has always supported the GOP nominee and will do so this year as well.
The announcement makes Cheney one of the few Republican Party elders to announce their support of Trump and comes a day after House Speaker Paul Ryan told CNN he is just not ready to back Trump.
Former President George W. Bush, who Cheney served, said this week he would skip this summers Republican convention where Trump will be formally nominated. Former President George H.W. Bush and John McCain and Mitt Romney, the GOPs 2008 and 2012 nominees, also dont plan to attend the convention.

Cheney’s daughter is running to succeed the retiring U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-WY. That explains Dick’s stance.
That and Dick Cheney was/is NOT a Bush/Establishment lapdog.
If she is anything like her father, Liz Cheney would be a great congresswoman. Dick Cheney is what I would call a practical, commonsense conservative, very level headed.
The GOP is showing its true colors
All the jerks I have voted for Ford,Dole, Bushes, Romney,McCain
The only good one Reagan
What happened to the I will support the nominees pledge
GOP is done if Hillary wins
I only came to this story for the comment section. to see how angry the leftist are about seeing the words “Dick Cheney.” to add their their insult, President Black Muslim Christian Pastor Imam Hussein Obama golfing buddy is Dick Cheney CEO and the leftist cannot make the connection. how stupid are they
We always knew Cheney was the good one.
I, like many others have done work for the government. Of all the people I would fear showing up at my doorstep at 3 am, even to this day... Dick Cheney would be number one.
I bet the guy is still up on where most if not all of his “operatives” and “functionaries” were located, working and associating with.
The Bushes should be very concerned that Cheney has agreed to support Trump... and should be very very concerned, if he gets “called in” for a consultation with the new ‘nominee apparent’ of the Republican party.
This also indicates to me that it is already known that barring divine intervention... Trump is going to win.
Cheney should egg Trump to go after goofy Colin Powell.
Too bad he couldn’t dissuade W from all that new spending, or persuade him to go harder after Fannie and Freddie.
Trump already designated Elizabeth Warren as “goofy.” He called her goofy Warren today.
The true DoD bulldog has spoken!!

See ya, don’t wanna be ya!
Uniparty losers, all of them.
Donald Trump on Elizabeth Warren: ‘Who’s that, the Indian?’
Thank you, Dick.
Well, Dole just endorsed Trump.
