After Christie asserted that Trump could not even defeat President Biden if they ran against one another in the 2024 presidential race, the past president and the former governor of New Jersey got into an online argument.
This happened on Sunday.
Trump and Christie Fall Out
Christie, who openly supported Trump in 2016 after abandoning his own presidential bid, but has since turned against the former president and outspokenly criticized Trump, made the 2024 prediction on ABC News.
This is where he currently contributes.
Trump, who announced his third attempt to run for president in November last year, retaliated against Christie’s comments on his platform, Truth Social.
Trump called Chris Christie “sloppy” and went on to describe him as the unsuccessful previous governor of New Jersey.
Trump said that Christie campaigned in New Hampshire for the Republican presidential nomination for practically the entirety of his final year in office.
Trump said that his presidential campaign was a total failure, much like his stint in office, in which he ended with an approval rating of just 9%.

He continued by saying Christie had supported him the next day and later advised Chris Wray to become the FBI director, which went up in smoke, and was then SALVAGED by ABC FAKE NEWS.
Regarding his former transition team leader, the former president exclaimed that he’d never wanted Christie.
Then on Sunday evening, Christie wrote on Twitter, rejecting the criticism and labeling Trump’s statement on Truth Social as a “new tantrum.”
I’m 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.

He said Trump’s latest temper tantrum is directed at him.
Then, Christie said when Trump asked him to prepare him for each and every general upcoming debate or even when Trump promised him three different cabinet positions, neither one of Trump’s claims today concerned him.
The former governor referred to the 2020 presidential election and said Trump is the only one to lose to Biden beyond Delaware and that the “defeat to Joe still stings.”
When Jonathan Karl of ABC News questioned Christie if Trump could beat Biden in the upcoming presidential race, Christie responded by saying that he did not think Trump could win.
Doubts Soar Over Trump
Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, a moderate Republican, concurred, by saying that while Trump might win the GOP nomination, he probably wouldn’t defeat Biden since the American people would fight back against a very extremist candidate.
He went on to say that in the game of politics, you win some and you lose some.
Trump is the only significant Republican contender to have declared his candidacy for president in 2024; however, several well-known Republicans are anticipated to do the same.
That’s as they see Trump to be weakened, following his defeat in 2020 and his support of several unsuccessful candidates in 2022.This article appeared in Conservative Cardinal and has been published here with permission.
