Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie ripped President Biden on his prisoner exchange deal with Iran, arguing “you cannot give $6 billion to a terrorist state.”
“I wouldn’t have made this deal,” Christie said Monday in an interview on CNN’s “The Source” with Kaitlan Collins. “As much as I would’ve liked those Americans to be home, you cannot give $6 billion to a terrorist state.
In exchange for the release of five wrongfully detained American prisoners, the White House’s agreement granted clemency to five Iranians and issued a blanket waiver for international banks to allow the transfer of $6 billion of Iranian oil sail proceeds, frozen in South Korea, to a bank in Qatar.

Christuie going after Biden?
His funding will dry up if he keeps doing that.
So much for the Biden/Christie ticket.
This is odd, he went after Biden? Would need to see the interview because I’m sure he tied this into Trump.
Well at least he’s attacking a dem instead of another Republican so I’ll give Christie that . I believe it was Iran’s money so it’s not like we were handing them our tax dollars for ransom.
It would be more of a story if he succeeded in sitting in a folding chair.
Christie flattens folding chair. Yawn.
This is his (Build back Better) plan. So far we have build back better 1.The Taliban 2.The Iranian terrorist state 3.The corrupt Ukrainian Regime.
Way to go Dems!!
Who cares what Lard Ass Christie has to say. He needs to keep his mouth full of donuts or around obama’s ass.
Says: “you cannot give $6 billion to a terrorist state.”
Thinks: Do you know how may foot long subs I could get at subway for that??
The pedophile lost hundreds of pounds eating Subway sandwiches. Krispy Kreme wasn’t thinking about subs he was probably thinking about Big Macs
Apparently, sails are extremely profitable. /s
Fitting faux pas in an article about the fat, hypocritical rino.
But you can give 200 billion to a nazi one? And how much have we deliberately enriched Communist China?
ONLY TIME I AGREE WITH CHRISTIE
Why is he even chiming in??????
He is irrelevant.
Christie only said this to try and buffer his obvious 24/7 jihad against Trump.
He knows people are questioning his constant hate on Trump and no criticism of Biden.
Mehhhh.....peanuts compared to $80B in military equip left to Afghanistan Taliban.......
It kind of remind me the now almost forgotten Iran-Contra scandal, which damaged Ronald Reagan last years of presidency.
Olie North sold Iran some equipment, gave the money to Contra’s in Nicaragua and managed the release of some hostages in Lebanon. Real hostages, professors of American University in Beirut. The money involved was rather minuscular.
The left just got ballistic! Paying for hostage release, how un American?!
Now they are all praising the wisdom and skills of Brandon!
The media loves Christie the RINO, and he loves the media. It’s his only link to relevancy, when he spouts off, and it gets printed.
He’s not blaming Trump? Amazing.
