Biden made the comment after visiting the restaurant 'Taqueria Las Gemelas' for a carry-out lunch on Cinco de Mayo in Washington, DC.

A renewed Republican drive to oust U.S. Representative Liz Cheney as a party leader for criticizing former President Donald Trump's false claims about the 2020 election intensified on Wednesday, as top Republicans including the former president voiced support for a Trump ally as her replacement.

Representative Steve Scalise, the No. 2 Republican in the House of Representatives, publicly endorsed Representative Elise Stefanik for Cheney's job as chair of the party's conference, which makes her the No. 3 House Republican. The move appeared to make certain a vote on Cheney's future, as early as next Wednesday.

Stefanik, a 36-year-old New York state Republican whose status in the party rose after she aggressively defended Trump during congressional hearings ahead of his 2019 impeachment, also has Trump's support.
