Chris Christie, the former Republican governor of New Jersey, is firm that he is “not going to defer to anyone” and says he is not going to wait and see if former President Donald Trump will run for office before making plans of his own for the 2024 general election.
For much of Donald Trump’s presidency, Chris Christie was close by his side. For his efforts, the former governor of New Jersey contracted a bad case of COVID-19.
These days Christie frequently appears on cable news programs to deliver Republican talking points. He is also on a bit of a rehabilitation tour after being so closely aligned with Trump.
Just a few months ago, Chris Christie was helping Donald Trump prepare to debate against Joe Biden. It’s been a strange couple of months for the former New Jersey governor since then.
Christie contracted a case of COVID-19 that was seriousness enough that he had to be hospitalized. And after Christie recovered, he saw his friend Donald Trump pardon Charles Kushner.
For a few weeks during the 2016 presidential primary, Chris Christie was willing to say that Donald Trump wasn’t qualified to be president. After the former New Jersey governor dropped out of the Republican nomination race, though, he quickly fell behind Trump.
Donald Trump and Chris Christie’s relationship can best be described as strange. The duo were friends for a long time, up until the 2016 Republican primaries. The two frequently insulted each other during the debates.
Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Donald Trump have long been friends. They had a bit of a hiccup during the 2015 Republican presidential nomination process.
Christie said that Trump was completely unqualified to be the president. Trump said much worse about Christie. But soon after dropping out, Christie fully back Trump.
Donald Trump is polling horribly in nearly every swing state. And the president is even doing poorly in states that he is expected to win. A new Quinnipiac poll released on Tuesday showed Trump trailing Biden by 3% points in Georgia.
Donald Trump has removed Brad Parscale as campaign manager for his reelection bid. His replacement is Bill Stepian, a central figure in the “Bridgegate” scandal.
Stepien worked for former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie until the Republican distanced himself from Stepien in the wake of “Bridgegate” – lane closures of the George Washington Bridge as political retribution.
Donald Trump was afraid to face his wife following the leak of the infamous Access Hollywood tape. A new book about the First Lady outlines the fall out in their relationship.
Trump’s comments about women on Access Hollywood became an issue during the 2016 election. The then Republican candidate told a TV host in 2005 that he could “grab them by the pussy.”
According to Christie, who many thought would become either Trump’s running mate or chief of staff, Trump avoided hiring good people who would guide him correctly and help him overcome his destructive impulses. Christie said that Trump needed people around him who were knowledgeable about how the U.S. government functions, but in most cases he didn’t get that.
Over the last July 4 holiday, in an infamous moment inspiring public outrage, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was captured on film enjoying a public beach with his family. His family were the only ones on the beach, as the beach had been closed to the public because the state, due largely to a Christie veto, had failed to pass a budget, preventing funds from being disbursed to public parks.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tried to defend Donald Trump Jr. and Donald Trump, but when he was pressed by MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace, it showed why no one would go on television to defend Trump.
You know things are going bad in Trumpworld when the unpopular New Jersey governor tries to distance himself from the president's team.
From one-time presidential front-runner to a disgraced – soon-to-be former – Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie sure has come a long way.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was caught on camera taking time out from dealing with a government shutdown to sunbathe on a state beach that had been closed to the public during the July Fourth holiday weekend.
New Jersey's government shut down on Friday at midnight after legislators failed to pass a budget before the July 1 deadline amid a political standoff. Linda So reports.
During a press conference, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie defended James Comey while claiming that he wouldn't have let Mike Flynn into the White House, much less given him a job.
Gov. Chris Christie has changed his tune on special prosecutors. The Republican from New Jersey has gone from demanding one to investigate Clinton to arguing that a special prosecutor is unnecessary to investigate Trump.
Trump's presidency, with its emphasis on law and order, is trying to sell us the idea that a repressive society is a free society.
