Trump and Christie shoot out after gloomy forecast for 2024

Former President Trump and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (right) sparred online on Sunday after Christie predicted that Trump would not be able to defeat President Biden if they ran against each other in the 2024 presidential election.

Christie, who endorsed Trump in 2016 after dropping his own presidential campaign but has since become a vocal critic of Trump, made his 2024 forecast Sunday on ABC News, where he is now a writer.

Trump responded to Truth Social. “Sleazy” 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. Just like during his tenure, when he left with a mere 9% approval rating, his presidential campaign was a complete disaster,” Trump tweeted.

“He backed me up the next day, later recommended Chris Ray to the FBI (how did that happen?), got burned, and then was RESCUED by ABC FAKE NEWS. I never wanted him!” the former president said of his former head of the transition team.

Christie responded later Sunday afternoon on Twitter, calling Trump’s “Truth on Social Media” post a “new hysteria” and denying the allegations.

“I have become the target of a new hysteria from Donald Trump. None of his lies about me bothered him today when he asked me to prepare him for all the general election debates or offered me 3 different cabinet positions,” Christie tweeted.

The former governor noted that Trump is “the only person to lose to Biden outside of Delaware” and added that “Joe’s loss is still painful,” referring to the 2020 presidential race.

Christie on ABC News’ This Week on Sunday said, “I don’t think so,” when network correspondent Jonathan Karl asked if Trump could beat Biden in the upcoming election.

Moderate Republican Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire agreed, arguing that Trump could secure the GOP nomination but probably couldn’t beat Biden because the American people were “out to fight back” a “very radical candidate.”

Trump is the only major GOP candidate so far to announce his 2024 race, but a number of other prominent Republicans are expected to join the race, with Trump seen as a weakened candidate following his 2020 defeat and the backing of a number of failed candidates in 2022. .
