The Vermonter Independent was busy Wednesday night with Cheney's Tweet, which seemed to refer to Senator Elizabeth Warren's hopeful comments on nuclear weapons during the presidential debate on Tuesday in 2020.
Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said she supported the United States commitment not to use nuclear weapons as a precautionary measure because it "reduces the likelihood of someone miscalculating, misunderstanding someone."
Cheney, the third-in-command Republican in Parliament, asked Warren on Twitter
"what American cities and how many American citizens are you willing to use their policies to force the US to absorb a nuclear attack before we to fight back, to sacrifice? "
Sanders weighed on Friday and tweeted
: "Obtaining national security advice from a Cheney has already done irreparable damage to our country – we do not need any more."
Cheney then responded
on Sanders: "No wonder the honeymoon in the Soviet Union is fine with BernieSanders if the US is attacked first. (By the way, he seems to have dad problems … with my dad.) "
Sander's campaign pointed to the senator's tweet when he was asked to comment.
Warren had also said on Tuesday evening that the Trump administration is pursuing a nuclear approach to "further expanding the various ways in which we have nuclear weapons. The different uses are a risk to all of us."
In January She introduced a bill that prevents the US from using nuclear weapons in a conflict first.
This is not the first time Sanders and Cheney have poked heads over the foreign p's former vice president's olicy legacy, specifically in relation to the Iraq war.
"Rep. Liz Cheney, the daughter of Dick Cheney, yesterday attacked the fraud of socialism," Sanders tweeted in January
. "Really? I was unaware that it was the "socialism" that lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and involved us in a terrible war that we should never have begun. "
:" Yes, @SenSanders, son of Eli Sanders, socialism is a scam that steals power from the people and passes them on to the government, destroys human freedom and initiative, and destroys the economy (ask the Venezuelans).
"By the way – your Dick Cheney story is as flawed as your economic policy."
