Donald Trump slammed “sloppy” Chris Christie after the former New Jersey governor declared he didn’t think the Republican candidate could beat President Biden in 2024.
“‘Sloppy’ 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,” Trump said in a Truth Social posting.
“Much like his term in office, where he left with an Approval Rating of just 9%, his Presidential campaign was a complete disaster.”
Trump added that he “never wanted” Christie as an ally and his career has only been “salvaged” by “ABC Fake News.”
That approval rating number wasn’t far off, as Christie left office as the least popular governor in his state’s history.

Trump’s tirade was in response to an ABC News interview in which Chris Christie said he didn’t believe the Republican candidate would emerge victorious in a rematch with President Biden.
Christie predicted the GOP would produce a large field of candidates willing to take on Trump for the Republican nomination, a notion that some would contend actually helped propel him to victory in a crowded field in 2016.
“Can Trump beat Biden?” asked ABC’s Jonathan Karl.
“I don’t think so,” replied Christie.
Recent polls have shown Donald Trump faring rather well against Biden should the two engage in a rematch of the 2020 presidential contest.
Trump, in fact, is now viewed more favorably than President Biden, Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, according to a Harvard Caps Harris survey conducted between January 18th and 19th.
The prevailing view amongst detractors like Christie is that Trump is simply too unlikeable to defeat Biden in 2024.
To the contrary, that same Harvard Caps Harris survey conducted between January 18th and 19th indicates he’d defeat the President by a wider margin than any other GOP candidate.

Christie Upset Over Trump’s ‘Tantrum’
Christie responded to Trump’s comments about him being “sloppy” on Twitter.
“I’m the target of Donald Trump’s new tantrum,” Christie wrote. “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,” he added. “That loss to Joe still stings.”

While it is true that Christie was once a close ally to Trump, he has recently pushed away from him in a manner he’d never push away at the buffet table.
Aside from seemingly being the world’s first unsuccessful lap band surgery recipient, he has a ton of baggage for those in the know in both New York and New Jersey – from Bridgegate to unwritten truces between he and ultra-liberal NY Governor Andrew Cuomo.
That said, Christie was one of Trump’s earliest supporters in the 2016 campaign, serving as an attack dog to help take down Marco Rubio during the debates.
And few remember that Christie was actually Trump’s first choice for Vice President in 2016, prior to being convinced otherwise by his inner circle.

Chris Christie is a has been and at the moment has nooo idea what he is talking about! Where the hell is Christies head? Is he living on the same inflation planet that the rest of US are living under the Biden Regime!? Oh please Christie don’t make it weirder than it is with the cuckoo democrats + socialist + elites + communist + fascist + Marxist and all the other mental disorders the democrat party has become.
All the polls have DeSantis ahead of Trump and Trump’s attacks on DeSantis have only hurt Trump.
Wait til the REAL campaign season starts and we have 3,206 GOP candidates blathering about each other. Lord help us, ol’ Joe might just pull off 4 more years. (gag)
President Trump needs to completely remove himself from the Democrat run Republican Party. The American people are leaving the Democrat Party and with the Ronna McDaniel fiasco the Republicans are withdrawing their support of the Republican Party. Are more and more Americans going to switch to the “Unaffiliated” (Independents) or are they going to start a new party that represents the American values? America is a divided country and it is time to reunite the people under a new party that is America First.
PRESIDENT TRUMP IS RELEIVENT TODAY. CHRISTIE IS A HAS BEEN ALSO RUN.
Chris Christie is a loser. He’s the literal “Boss Hog”.
