The former New Jersey Governor, who enjoys popularity among Never Trump Republicans and even many Democrats, answered Trump’s Truth Social rant. Christie said, “Keep it coming, Donald,” and continued taunting the former president.

Christie calls Trump to debate

Wolf Blitzer, a CNN host, asked Christie why Trump has not attended GOP debates yet. Christie swiftly responded, “If I had his record, I wouldn’t want to debate either.” According to the ex-governor, this is just one of the things Trump promised to fulfill but failed.

The GOP presidential hopeful explained, “He said he was going to balance the budget in four years as a businessman. He added $7 trillion to the national debt. Said he was going to build a ‘big, beautiful wall’ across the entire border of Mexico. He built 52 miles of new wall in four years.” There was more…

The list goes on

Christie continued, “He said Mexico was going to pay for it. They never did. He said he was going to repeal and replace Obamacare. He had a Republican Congress, he couldn’t get it done. Look, that’s not a record to be proud of.”

Christie, a former Trump ally, said, “He doesn’t want to face me” and elaborated, “I prepared him for the debates in 2016. I prepared him for the debates in 2020. He knows what that’s like. He doesn’t want the American people to see it. I do.”

The question of guts

“He doesn’t like when people stand up to him and call him out on the nonsense that he’s involved in,” Christie shared, and added, “If he had any guts, he’d get on the debate stage.”

Blame it on indigestion

Christie continued, “I guess he had a bad night last night, maybe at some bad Chinese food or something Wolf. Well, at 11:30 at night, a little indigestion decided to attack me.”

Rumor has it Trump gave Christie Covid during debate preparation

The former NJ governor ended up spending a week in the intensive care unit after Trump allegedly “gave” him Covid. Reports claim they were preparing for Trump’s debate during the 2020 elections.

Christie also slammed Truth Social

While other GOP nominees, sans Trump, are in the middle of preparing for the second debate, Christie took time to call out Trump and even slammed his social network. Christie told CNN, “Stop hiding behind your … failed social media site.”

Christie delivered, “He doesn’t like it when he’s taken out directly, and he’s confronted,” he said. “I’m the only one on that stage who is unwilling to raise my hand — beside [former Arkansas Gov.] Asa Hutchinson — and say I wouldn’t support a convicted felon for president of the United States.”

Christie’s message
