Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has vowed to have a public confrontation with former President Donald Trump in the next couple of months.
Christie, who was a close ally of Trump during his presidency, has become increasingly critical of Trump in recent months. He has accused Trump of being a “bully” and a “liar.”
The former governor said this week that he will track down and publicly confront former President Donald Trump on the campaign trail over the next couple of months.
He made these comments during an interview over the weekend and said that he would start following Trump around the country if Trump continues to skip Republican Party primary debates.
Christie said this at a town hall in New Hampshire on Tuesday that he was working with his staff to come up with a plan to confront Trump because he was “pretty much hiding in the basement.”
“This is a guy who’s taking advantage of the fact that he lives behind the walls of private clubs and he has Secret Service protection,” he said. “So what we’re going to basically have to do is go to public events of his and try to confront him. If he won’t show up at debates, then that’s what we’re going to have to do. I mean, I don’t know how else to do it.”
Christie said what he would like to do is have “a press conference outside his house, but you can’t do that because he lives behind the walls of these private clubs and I wouldn’t be able to get into them.”
“You think I’m going to have a hard time finding Donald Trump? You think that over the course the next couple of months, I’m not going to find him and confront him someplace?” Christie said. “I was a prosecutor for seven years. It was my job to find people and confront them. So don’t worry about it, I’ll find him.”
Don’t worry. I’ll track him down. I’ll confront him. And we’ll expose his lies.
