Cheney tells GOP to stop promoting white supremacyU.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, who has long attacked Republican Party leadership for following Donald Trump, went after GOP officials on Monday for racism in the wake of the Buffalo shooting.

"The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism," Cheney tweeted. "History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. @GOP leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them."

The tweet came two days after an 18-year-old man who had expressed fears of racial "replacement theory" shot and killed 10 people and wounded three others at a supermarket in Buffalo. Most of the victims are Black, including a security guard, store employees and weekend shoppers.

Cheney's frequent criticisms of the party has earned her a Republican primary challenger backed by Trump. House Republicans also voted last year to dismiss Cheney from her House leadership position.
