Former US President Donald Trump is writing down insults and asking aides to tweet them from their accounts following his permanent ban from Twitter for his involvement in the deadly Capitol riots, The Daily Beast reports.
One of the insults the former President wrote was aimed at the US representatives for Wyoming, Liz Cheney, who was one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach him after the Capitol riots.
Sources close to the former President told The Daily Beast that Trump "grumbles" about Cheney being "totally phony." The source also said he saw Cheney’s political fate as key to his hold over the GOP.
Trump has not been able to personally insult Cheney, the third most powerful Republican in Congress, over social media after his Twitter account with 88 million followers was removed.
Trump told allies that they can’t let her "get away with" this and that he wishes to ruin her political future, The Daily Beast heard.
In a closed-door GOP meeting, some Republicans called to remove Cheney as chair of the house of conference after voting to impeach Trump. The bid by Trump loyalists failed.
The poll was organised by Trump’s top 2016 and 202 campaign pollster, John Mclaughlin for Save American PAC and senior Trump adviser Jason Miller
Miller told The Daily Beast the congresswoman no longer had any "political pulse."
"It is notable that the Cheney camp hasn’t put out any numbers to refute what was found in the McLaughlin polling," Miller said.
Trump is now awaiting his impeachment trial after being accused of inciting an insurrection when he urged supporters to "fight" his election defeat before they stormed the Capitol.
