The awkward moment reflects the stark divide in GOP leadership in a post-Trump era.
Reporter: "Should Trump speak at CPAC?"
Republican House Leader (Top House GOPer) McCarthy: Yes he should
Reporter: "Miss Cheney?"
Republican Liz Cheney: "That is up to CPAC, but Trump has no place in our party or our country"
McCarthy instantly ended the press briefer and they left. Liz Cheney is under fire on social media for attacking Trump and the party. The GOP continues to create a 50/50 divide. Many political scientists are now saying, if they do not unite before 2022, they will lose more seats and the party may even create a new one for Trump.
