    Christie Met With Boos At Event After Criticizing Trump

    Published on

    Former New Jersey Republican governor Chris Christie, who entered the 2024 presidential campaign earlier this month, was met with boos and chants of “Trump, Trump, Trump” at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Policy event after criticizing the former president.

    Christie stated in his speech that former President Donald Trump was the reason he decided to run for office.

    “Why am I running for president of the United States? I’m running because [Trump’s] let us down. He has let us down because he’s unwilling — he’s unwilling to take responsibility for any of the mistakes that were made,” said Christie at one point to a crowd that was silent at the time.

    “Any of the faults that he has, and any of the things that he’s done,” he added, as some in the audience began to grumble audibly.

    “And that is not leadership, everybody. That is a failure of leadership,” Christie, who was a member of Trump’s 2016 presidential transition team, continued as some began to boo.

    “And I— you can boo all you want, but here’s the thing. Our faith teaches us that people have to take responsibility for what they do. People have to stand up and take accountability for what they do,” Christie continued, garnering some applause along with the boos.

    “I cannot stand by, and as soon as I’ve started to be critical. After all of that, they offered me White House Chief of Staff, now what he does is call me names. And belittle me,” he said.

    Since November, when he was the first to declare his candidacy for the Republican nomination, Trump has led the Republican presidential field. And while Trump may continue to face legal challenges in New York and Georgia, according to a significant new presidential poll for 2024, these cases do not appear to have harmed him politically.

    In fact, the perception that he is a political target may aid him ahead of a possible 2020 rematch with President Joe Biden.

    According to the most recent Harvard-Harris poll, there has been a significant increase in support for Donald Trump, indicating that he may have a path to victory in 2020 if he secures the Republican nomination. The poll results indicate that Trump continues to maintain a formidable presence despite numerous legal challenges, while also maintaining a sizable lead over his Democratic rivals.

    Trump’s 47 percent approval rating, which surpasses Biden’s 40 percent, gives him a 7-point lead over the vice president.

    The survey also evaluated hypothetical matchups between Trump and prominent Democrats. Trump, for example, received 50% of the vote, while Vice President Kamala Harris only received 39%.

    As for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has not yet declared his candidacy but is expected to as early as this week, the results showed him in a dead heat with Biden at 42 percent apiece, which was the same outcome as a potential DeSantis-Harris matchup. CONTINUE READING…
