Moments after being voted in as House Republican Conference chair on Friday, Rep. Elise Stefanik told reporters that she supports former President Donald Trump and that Republican voters are unified in working with him. She made her remarks two days after Rep. Liz Cheney was removed from the same leadership post for refusing to support Trump’s false claim that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
REPORTER 1: Is President Trump the leader of the Republican Party?
- I believe that voters determine the leader of the Republican Party and President Trump is the leader that they look to. I support President Trump. Voters support President Trump. He is an important voice in our Republican Party and we look forward to working with him.
REPORTER 2: But how can you be unified, so long as you have some members who support the former president and some who don't?
- We are unified and I look to the voters across America. Republican voters are unified in their support and their desire to work with President Trump and we are unified as Republicans.
