Former New Jersey Governor still laments that he did not do better in his 2016 presidential campaign.
Frankly, many Republicans are glad he didn’t because many of Christie’s actions while governor seemed to be more Democratic than Republican.
He favored many gun control bills, signed New Jersey’s bill to make it illegal for Christian counseling of gender confused individuals and he often came to the defense of Muslims over Christians.
In Christie’s mind, he believes he would have made a better Attorney General under President Trump, than Jeff Sessions turned out to be.
Christie stated that if he had been Attorney General that there never would have been a Robert Mueller investigation.
Fox News – Chris Christie details Trump campaign role, insists ‘there would be no Bob Mueller’ if he were AG, in Fox interview – Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie recounted his 2016 presidential bid, his friendship with President Trump and the tension between Trump aides during an appearance Saturday on FOX News’ “Watters’ World” with host Jesse Watters.
Christie also said “there would no Bob Mueller” had Trump selected him to be U.S. attorney general, referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his Russia investigation.
Promoting his new book, “Let Me Finish: Trump, the Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, and the Power of In-Your-Face Politics,” Christie recalled why he was among the first Republicans to endorse Trump for president after ending his own White House bid.
“He was my friend for 15 years at that point but also I campaigned against him,” Christie recounted. “I knew he was going to be the Republican nominee and my job, as I saw it, was to endorse him and to go in there and make him the best candidate he could be because we did not Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States.” …
In his interview, Christie also accused former Trump confidant Steve Bannon of making things up, which on at least one occasion, resulted in Christie not traveling with the Trump team to the second debate with Hillary Clinton.
Christie also said that it was Jared Kushner, Trumps son-in-law who was responsible for Christie being fired as chairman of Trump’s transition team.
The reason for the firing was revenge on the part of Kushner, because Christie had prosecuted Kushner’s father back in 2004.
Frankly, I wouldn’t truth Christie with any position.
