(ConservativeHub.com) – On May 7, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said that a possible Trump-Biden rematch in 2024 could have negative effects on the GOP.
While talking to host John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM’s “Cats Roundtable,” Christie expressed concerns about the possibility that “we’re heading” towards a possible rematch between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden. He proceeded to state that following his win in the 2016 presidential election, Trump has only lost elections. First, he lost the House during the 2018 elections, and then the Senate and White House two years later. He added that even in 2022, the GOP had underwhelming results which further showed that Trump does not appear to be in a position to deliver wins.
He continued to argue that Trump’s goal is not to improve the country itself but rather to make himself appear better. According to The Hill, Christie is considering joining the 2024 presidential race himself, and has demonstrated a desire to become a candidate who could oppose Trump.
This is not the first time that Christie has criticized Trump. The Hill reported that earlier this week, he questioned Trump’s comments indicating he might not do primary debates. He claimed that Trump was scared of going on the primary debate stage because he fears falling behind in the race. He added that Trump was afraid to go up against people who were serious in such a setting.
During the interview, Christie also pointed out that it was only possible for the frontrunner to be brought down if someone went directly up against him. This relates to Christie’s previous criticisms of GOP candidates and their general attempt to avoid directly criticizing Trump out of fear of driving away Trump’s base.
