Former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie (R), is the latest. “target” of former President Trump after stating during an appearance on ABC’s This WeekTrump is so “toxic”This “boring” Joe Biden won in 2020.
“Joe Biden’s president because Donald Trump lost. Joe Biden didn’t win, and Joe Biden’s never taken possession of that fact. So he continues to do what he did when he was running which he thinks was great, because ‘I won,’” Christie told ABC’s Jon Karl over the weekend.
“No, you didn’t win, Trump lost, and you can’t change who somebody is, Jon,”Christie said that Biden was still alive and well. “old”And “boring.”Christie claimed that Biden won the election last year because he was a good candidate. “running against someone … who was so toxic that he won anyway.”
Trump took to TruthSocial, hitting back against Christie, pointing to the former governor’s abysmal approval ratings as well as the failure of the 60-year-old’s presidential campaign and his recommendation of Chris Wray for the FBI.
“‘Sloppy’ Chris Christie, the failed former Governor of New Jersey, spent almost his entire last year in office campaigning in New Hampshire for the Republican Nomination for President,”Trump declared.
“Much like his term in office, where he left with an Approval Rating of just 9%, his Presidential campaign was a complete disaster. He endorsed me the following day, later recommended Chris Wray for the FBI (how did that work out?), went down in flames, and then was SALVAGED by ABC FAKE NEWS. I never wanted him!”He exclaimed.
Christie declared then that she was the “target of Donald Trump’s new tantrum.”
“None of his lies about me today bothered him when he asked me to prep him for every general election debate or offered me 3 different cabinet posts. He’s the only man to lose to Biden outside Delaware. That loss to Joe still stings,” Christie added:
I’m the target of Donald Trump’s new tantrum. He didn’t seem to be bothered by any of my lies today about me. He’s the only man to lose to Biden outside Delaware. It still hurts to lose Joe.

This is far from the first time Christie has publicly criticized Trump, asserting during a December appearance on ABC’s This Week that Trump was helping Democrats — not Republicans — win, pointing to former Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker’s loss.
And on the Donald Trump side, I mean, you know, we all remember, in 2016, he said, if he got elected, there was going to be so much winning and winning and winning and winning, they’d get sick of winning. We didn’t know that he meant to say the Democrats would win all the winning and not the Republicans. And that’s what he’s wrought. And Herschel Walker is his creation. And so he’s got to own the fact that Herschel Walker so vastly underperformed in a state as — as we saw earlier, every other Republican running statewide won, except for Herschel Walker. That tells us something. Bad candidate.
Christie also exhorted Republicans to dump “selfish”Trump at the midterms. Take a poll after Take a pollSome even show Trump as leading the hypothetical 2024 presidential primary by two digits. LeadingAdditionally, President Biden.
