- Chris Christie said he would run against Donald Trump again.
- Christie made the remarks during a Monday interview with Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show.”
- Christie then took a slap at Trump: “We’re not talking about Dwight Eisenhower here.”
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has said he will run against former President Donald Trump again in an interview with The Daily Show on Monday.
“Of course,” the failed presidential candidate said in 2016 when Trevor Noah asked if he would run against Trump.
Noah then asked a crew member to put the camera on Christie’s face and asked him again, to which the former governor replied “Yes”.
Christie said he did not feel pressured to avoid running against Trump and threw himself into a grave after the former president.
“We’re not talking about Dwight Eisenhower here,” he said, referring to the former Republican president and former war general.
Christie ran unsuccessfully against Trump in a crowded primary field in 2016, but became a close adviser to the president during his one term, and even coached Trump for a presidential debate with Joe Biden during the 2020 election.
But since Trump was defeated, Christie has distanced himself from the GOP banner.
During the interview, Noah Christie grilled about his relationship with Trump.
Christie told Noah he can not support Trump if he continues to talk about the 2020 election being stolen.
“I can not support anyone who ends up saying ‘our democracy did not work’,” Christie said.
