Chris Christie doubles down on his plan to bring down Trump

Chris Christie opened up about his rhetoric about fellow presidential candidate Donald Trump in an interview on Sunday, calling the former president a “fussy kid” and a “loser.”

The former New Jersey governor appeared on CNN state of the union, where he tore up Trump’s recent statements about former administration officials such as John Kelly, one of Trump’s many chiefs of staff, and former Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

“Donald Trump – if you believe what he said when they left, that means he didn’t choose the best people and he doesn’t know how to choose staff,” Christie said. “If you believe what – about them what he said in the beginning, the great stuff, then this guy is the worst manager in the history of the American presidency. Either way, Republicans should listen to what he says. He is an irritable child when someone disagrees with them.

Christie further blasted Trump’s etiquette on a potential debate stage, reiterating his promise to treat the Republican National Committee’s pledge to back the eventual 2024 nominee “just as seriously” as when Trump refused to acknowledge him. during the first Republican debate in 2015.

“I will do what I have to do to be on this stage to try to save my party, save my country for being led by three-time loser Donald Trump,” Christie said, citing Republican performances in 2018, 2020 and 2022. “Loser, loser, loser.”

Yet even as he acknowledged Trump’s failures and promoted his quest to prevent the twice-indicted former president from winning a second term, he offered few concrete plans for his own potential presidency.

When asked by host Jake Tapper if he would push for a nationwide abortion ban, as some Republicans (including fellow Republican nominee Mike Pence) have demanded, Christie got over it. in the Senate and any national consensus he might find. “Let’s see what the states are doing here and see if they’ve formed a national consensus,” he said. “Because there’s no way to get 60 votes in the Senate for anything unless you’ve formed a national consensus.”

Unlike her competitors, Christie offered a different and positive view of gender-affirming care for children, which became a galvanizing issue for her opponents, seeking to condemn them. Christie has stipulated that parents should be involved in the choices children make, even if they are under 18, chastising some calls from conservatives to ban all forms of gender-affirming care. “The fact is, people under the age of 18 should have the support, guidance and love of their parents when making all the key decisions in their lives,” Christie said. “And they should in no way be excluded by the government.”
