Even if former President Donald Trump wins the GOP nomination in 2024, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) will not support him, according to an interview Christie had with Axios.
Christie explained he wouldn’t vote for President Joe Biden or the former President in 2024, suggesting both men were “too old” and “out of touch with what’s going on in the world right now.”
The former New Jersey Governor was once a staunch ally of Trump’s, helping him prepare for debates with Biden in 2020, but distanced himself from the former President following the January 6 Insurrection.
Christie has since gone on to criticize Trump for his role in the deadly Capitol riot and his leadership since that day.
When questioned if he would help Trump again in 2024, Christie responded, “I can’t help him. No way.”
He added that he “just can’t” support Trump in 2024, referencing the former President’s Waco, Texas, rally on Saturday, where he played a video of the “January 6 choir at a rally,” describing Trump’s actions as inappropriate for a President.
Christie also explained his support for Trump in 2016 stemmed from his belief the then-GOP Candidate would win the Republican nomination and didn’t want Hilary Clinton to become President.
Christie confirmed that he had “concerns about [Trump] in 2016, noting he’d have concerns about any candidate other than himself.
When Christie endorsed Trump in 2016, he had initially run in the GOP primaries before he dropped out.
The former New Jersey Governor also revealed on Sunday (March 26) that he would decide about entering the 2024 GOP primary in the “next 60 days.”
