    Former New Jersey Governor and GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie joined a recent episode of the “Hacks on Tap” podcast, where he gave President Biden advice on how to beat former President Trump in their upcoming debates. Christie, a former Trump ally, was one of the loudest critics of the former president in this cycle’s primary. He told podcast hosts David Axelrod — the former senior adviser to former President Obama — and Mike Murphy, a Republican consultant, that he’d now give Biden similar advice he gave Trump before the 2020 presidential debates. “It’s the same advice I gave to...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said it was “stupid” of President Joe Biden not to reach out to him since he declared he was not supporting former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election. In an interview with the Washington Post‘s Leigh Ann Caldwell, Christie said that, while he would not be “voting for Trump under any circumstances,” he would also not be voting for Biden, citing his age.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) has not ruled out voting for President Biden while vowing to not back former President Trump as the two head toward a likely rematch in November. Christie was asked in an interview on Crooked Media’s “Pod Save America” podcast on Wednesday whether the choice between Biden and Trump matters in next November’s election as the two remain the front-runners of their respective parties. He did not commit to voting for Biden, suggesting that he would likely support a potential No Labels bid by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) instead.

    Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that former President Donald Trump being elected again posed “a national security risk.” Anchor Kristen Welker said, “We’ve got a new set of comments from former President Trump overnight. He basically is recounting a story, conversation he says he had with one of the NATO leaders about paying their fair share in the face of these threats by Vladimir Putin. Let’s take a look, and I’ll get your reaction on the other side.”

    ...During his interview with Stephanopoulos, Christie discussed his plans for the upcoming New Jersey Republican primary in June and the November general election. He stated that he doesn’t anticipate having anyone on the primary ballot to support and has no intention of writing himself in. However, he emphasized that he would not support Donald Trump under any circumstances in the November election... Christie also mentioned that No Labels had yet to approach him about being on the organization’s presidential ticket, despite previous statements from founding chairman Joe Lieberman. While Christie did not explicitly reject running under the No Labels banner,...

    Former GOP presidential primary candidate Chris Christie balked at endorsing current candidate Nikki Haley in a Tuesday interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “Look, imagine the position I’d be in if I endorsed someone who then turned around and endorsed Donald Trump,” Christie told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “I’m not gonna be put in that spot again, George. I made a decision in 2016, the only time in my political career, where I endorsed someone purely for political reasons, even though I had some misgivings.” “And that’s when I endorsed Donald Trump,” Christie continued. “And it was the biggest mistake I’ve...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said his hot-mic remark last month predicting GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley would get “smoked” in the race against former President Trump was a “complete mistake,” but he did not apologize for making the comment. In a preview of a “Good Morning America” interview set to air on Tuesday, Christie recounted the hot-mic moment that took place just minutes before he suspended his presidential campaign, when Christie was heard saying about Haley, “She’s gonna get smoked. And you and I both know it, she’s not up to this.”

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is sounding the alarm, claiming a second term for former President Trump would create a “huge personnel problem” in the White House. “​One, it’ll be a huge personnel problem of people who have no business being in senior positions in the federal government,” Christie told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos in a recent interview. “​And then secondly, I think we have to take him at his word.” “This is gonna be the vendetta presidency,” he added. Segments of the interview, which comes on the release of Christie’s third book — “What Would Reagan...

    Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley wrist-flicked the idea of former Gov. Christ Christie’s (R-NJ) endorsement on the eve of the New Hampshire primary. “At the end of the day, you don’t want all of those politicians’ endorsements,” Haley told the far-left NewsNation of Christie Friday. “That’s part of the problem. You want people who actually move the ball.” Haley added she has “plenty” of campaign cash to remain in the race. She added, “I don’t need” Christie’s endorsement.

    Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Thursday that he wants former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) to consider a third-party presidential bid with No Labels after Christie ended his GOP campaign. Lieberman, chair of No Labels, brushed off previous comments from Christie denouncing the group’s push for a bipartisan third-party ticket. “Look, earlier in the year when he was asked about No Labels, he basically said it was not an effort that had any chance of succeeding, but maybe the world will look different to him now,” Lieberman said in a SiriusXM interview with Michael Smerconish. “And I’d like...

The Associated Press said Christie could have been saying DeSantis was worried he would endorse former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.

    A new scandal erupted just days before the Iowa Caucus as former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was forced to address fresh revelations that his name had appeared over 50 times in newly unsealed Sizzler documents. In the records provided by the buffet-style steak, seafood, and salad bar restaurant, Christie's now-unredacted name appears dozens of times for violating a variety of buffet line rules. "Scandal is the politest word one can use to describe the Sizzler documents," said political expert Dr. Blake Rumsey. "They say he used to fill drink cups with blue cheese salad dressing and slurp it down...

    Presidential hopeful Chris Christie on Wednesday said that he would not pardon former President Donald Trump if he is convicted of crimes. During an appearance on The View, Christie didn't even let co-host Joy Behar finish the question when pointing out that opponents Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley had already pledged to pardon Trump, asking if he would do the same. “No, no, no, no,” Christie said. “As a governor, I issued pardons,” Christie explained. “And one of the things you have to do is look at the person. The person has to accept responsibility for what they...

    In a new campaign ad that doubles as a confessional, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tells voters he has "an admission to make." Why it matters: Christie, who's been particularly critical of Trump during his campaign, is trying to win over voters who, like himself, backed Trump in the past and now are wary or disillusioned. What he's saying: "Eight years ago when I decided to endorse Donald Trump for president, I did it because he was winning, and I did it because I thought I could make him a better candidate and a better president," Christie says in...

    Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie said Wednesday he would not vote for former President Donald Trump in November, breaking his debate pledge with the Republican National Committee (RNC), called the “Beat Biden Pledge.” The broken pledge and refusal to vote for the likely GOP presidential nominee appears to highlight Christie’s thirst to remain politically relevant, considering: Just two percent support Christie’s GOP primary bid, Fox News polling shows. He maintains a negative net approval rating (-55), according to the Wall Street Journal. “No,” Christie replied when MSNBC’s Mike Barnicle asked if he would vote for Trump, breaking his pledge with...

When asked about Haley’s Civil War remarks, Christie said, “Here’s the bottom line on this. Nikki Haley, as I defended her in the fourth debate, as you’ll remember, is a smart woman, and she knows better. Look, she’s been having this problem for decades in terms of her answer about this. If you go back to her running for governor in 2010, she said that...
