The Democrat weighed in after Gaetz said during an appearance on Trump ally Stephen Bannon’s radio show that he would step down from Congress to defend Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial if asked to do so.

“Absolutely. If the president called me and wanted me to go defend him on the floor of the Senate, that would be the top priority in my life. I would leave my House seat, I would leave my home,” Gaetz said.

The Florida Republican added that he views the “cancellation of the Trump presidency and the Trump movement as one of the biggest threats” to his district.

Gaetz, one of Trump’s most vocal defenders in the House, has blasted Republicans who criticized the former president or voted to impeach him following the deadly riot on Capitol Hill last month.

House Republicans are set to meet Wednesday to discuss Cheney’s future in leadership. Gaetz told The Hill that the conference would consist of “those who want to drive out the populists, those who want to drive out the establishment and those who simply want peace.”
