Former President Donald Trump last week criticized Chris Christie’s weight. The former New Jersey governor has now reacted to Trump’s comment.
Christie who had previously been allied with Trump has said that his recent claims that the President can declassify documents just “by thinking about it” are ridiculous, as the idea of never having to do something but rather just having to think about it would be so much easier for everyone. He also mocked the idea that a potential candidate for the 2024 elections would think that they have nothing to do during the job, but could just think about things.
Trump posted a photo of Christie preparing his meal on his Truth Social platform. This was widely believed to be a jab at Christie’s weight.
This criticism came after Christie said that the Justice Department did not have a choice but to raid Mar-a-Lago and find the classified documents found at Trump’s estate.
Christie, who originally ran against Trump in 2016, was one of the first Republicans to endorse him.
In his book, Christie also claimed that he had made transition plans for Trump which were then thrown out after Trump had become the president. He also wrote that he had been hoping to hear an offer for the vice presidency or attorney general position, but no such offers came through.
Still, throughout Trump’s presidency, the two maintained a relatively good relationship. Following the 2020 election though Christie’s criticisms of Trump increased.
The former governor is another potential presidential hopeful in 2024 although he has never made any comments on the matter.
