"Would you ever consider being the conduit to that third party?" Goldberg asked Cheney. "Because I don't know if the Republican Party as we knew it will survive this. Because if [Trump] ever gets in again we'll never have anymore elections — there will be no more. He will stop it, and he's very clear about that. He wants to be dictator for life. So I wonder would ever consider, please, would you?"

Cheney has yet to decide if she will throw her hat in the ring, but she explained "that the Republican Party itself is clearly so caught up in this cult of personality that it's very hard to imagine that the party can survive."

"Of course I am the one that had very little of it. Take a look at wars. I wasn't involved in wars. We beat the h--- out of ISIS. We won 100 percent. We brought our troops back home. Look at the violence we've had recently. You have a man who can't lead, you have a man who can't find his way off stage after making a speech. I think bedlam is Joe Biden. This is just a political ploy. ‘Trump is a dictator, he wants to be a dictator,'" he said.

Trump claimed he is going to work on two issues if elected: fix the border and "drill, baby, drill," and then he won't be a dictator anymore.
