Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie might not have the name power he once did, but he's still somebody that Republicans would love to have in their corner.
Unfortunately for Donald Trump, Christie has already indicated he won't be supporting the former president once again in 2024.
The Republican from New Jersey said that he "just can't" back another Donald Trump campaign. He said:
You know, Donald Trump said a couple of weeks ago, ‘I am your retribution.’ Guess what, everybody? No thanks. No thanks.
"If I was going to pay somebody to be my retribution, I guarantee this, it wouldn’t be him," Christie said. "Here’s why it wouldn’t be him, because he doesn’t want to be my retribution. That’s baloney."
Not only is Chris not supporting Trump this time around, he thinks he knows how a different Republican could surpass Trump. Fight fire with fire and go after Trump at his own game. He added:
You better have somebody on that stage who can do to Trump what I did to Marco because that’s the only thing that’s going to defeat Donald Trump. That means you’ve got to have the skill to do it. And that means you have to be fearless, because he will come right back at you. So you need to think about who’s got the skill to do that. And who’s got the guts to do it? Because it’s not going to end nicely. No matter what, his end will not be calm and quiet.
