Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said there is "no question" the world is a safer place with President Trump at America's helm.

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney said on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s foreign policy is making the world a “safer” and more stable place, according to The Hill.

Speaking with NBC News host Chuck Todd, the Wyoming congresswoman said, “There’s no question that the world is safer” under the Trump presidency.

"[We're] in a situation where American leadership has come back," she said. Cheney then blamed former President Obama for the loss of that leadership, saying under his watch, the military "did not get the resources it needed."

Trump withdrew from deals with other countries — namely the Iran nuclear deal — that “made us less safe,” Cheney said.

Todd pushed back on the congresswoman’s narrative, The Hill noted, asking “why India and Pakistan are closer to war and tensions are growing between Japan and South Korea if the world is ‘safer.’"

He suggested other presidents would not allow such tense situations to “fester” as Trump has, and wondered if this is why the president has blown through three national security advisers in his first term.

John Bolton, the third individual to hold the position, resigned last week — though he and Trump have disagreed over whether Bolton resigned or was fired by the president.

Asked if that situation bothers her, Cheney replied, "Bolton served the nation honorably in a number of positions, but the president has a right to keep around him who he decides.”

Thank you, Liz Chaney, for your support of President Trump. We are so blessed to have a leader with the solid determination as Trump. We have a great team within Trump's administration who are working on resolving the issues forced upon us by Obama and Hillary.

I am confident that with Trump's current level of perseverance and record-making manner of keeping promises made to America, that he will manage to surprise us in his magnitude of placing America within the range of leadership of which she is on familiar ground...or better. Trump's success in keeping his promises to America has been in spite of the current instability and arrogance radically demonstrated by our Leftist members of the House of Congress to undermine any accomplishment by our President.

I'm looking forward to that possiblity that time may not require the currently projected decades to reinforce strength of America as designed by our Framers.

Is there any evidence at all that Iran was responsible for the attack on the Saudi Oil Fields?

Israeli Intell said Iran was not seeking a nuclear weapon. The Israeli Defense Force said the Iran deal gave them a 10 to 20 year period before they could develop a Nuke.

If Obama bribed Iran he is the most brilliant con artist ever. He bribe Iran with their own money. That was money the US seized after the overthrow of the Shah.

Trump is truly stupid. Dick Cheney is a war criminal. Liz Cheney is contemptible.
