Former Vice President Dick Cheney, during an interview with a conservative radio host, accused President Obama of trying to destroy the country from within and said his policies are the work of someone looking to "take America down." 

Cheney spoke to "The Hugh Hewitt Show" on Tuesday, in an appearance to promote a new book he co-authored with daughter Liz Cheney on American foreign policy. He went on to call Obama “the worst president” the country has had.

“I vacillate between the various theories I’ve heard, but you know, if you had somebody as president who wanted to take America down, who wanted to fundamentally weaken our position in the world and reduce our capacity to influence events, turn our back on our allies and encourage our adversaries, it would look exactly like what Barack Obama’s doing,” Cheney said. 

Cheney, who has never held back in his criticism of Obama, said the president was leaving a “terrible burden” for the next president when it comes to Iran.

“This is a totally radical regime that is the premiere sponsor of state terrorism in the world, and Obama’s about to give them nuclear weapons,” he said. “It’s, I can’t think of a more terrible burden to leave the next president than what Obama is creating here.”
