(MSNBC) — Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Donald Trump “sounds like a liberal Democrat” following the billionaire’s recent claims that the George W. Bush administration lied to start the Iraq War and failed to prevent the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
“He sounds like a liberal Democrat to me, Bret, he’s wrong,” Cheney said in an interview Monday on Fox New’s “Special Report with Bret Baier.” ”He’s, I think, deliberately promoting those views in order to advance his political interests.”
Cheney is also not the first Republican to recently criticize Trump for his supposedly less-than-conservative thinking. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said during the Saturday debate that Trump will appoint liberals to the Supreme Court if elected. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush added to the fire in a speech Monday night in South Carolina when he said Trump sounded like liberal filmmaker Michael Moore during the Republican debate. Cruz and Bush have also recently put out five separate attack ads against Trump in South Carolina before the state’s upcoming Republican primary Saturday.
