Donald Trump, 2016 candidate for President received another big endorsement and it comes from current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a former rival in the presidential race, who told gathered media in Texas today that “the only choice’ for the big job is Donald Trump.
He explained the process of this decision, taking a breath first. Christie informed the crowd that following the New Hampshire primary he returned home with his wife Mary Pat and they discussed the situation together with their family. Did they want to make a difference in this Presidential race or not? “I concluded, along with Mary Pat and the children support it, that we wanted to be with the person who we though could provide the strongest leadership for America and the person who could best make sure that Hillary Clinton never gets within ten miles of the White House. Once we made that decision, it [was] clear the only choice was Donald Trump. The best choice was Donald Trump.”
Senator Rubio ‘barely shows up for work’
Additionally Governor Christie said his family values Trump family friendship. Trump talked with Christie yesterday and the decision was made for Christie to come out to Texas and join him in meeting with voters in that state before the big primary contests on Tuesday next week. Christie had much to say regarding Senator Marco Rubio’s attacks yesterday at the Houston GOP debate carried by CNN, of course.
“I find it fascinating,” Gov. Christie told reporters, “that someone who barely shows up for work and [sits as] a United States Senator can [talk about] someone else being ‘unprepared.’ The fact of the matter is that Senator Rubio has shown himself over the course of time to be wholly unprepared to be President of the United States. I’ve said that at the time I was in the race and nothing has changed my mind now.”
Christie said the only two candidates on the stage in Houston Thursday night, who have actually made executive decisions, are Donald Trump and Ohio Governor John Kasich. The confidence Christie has is that Trump is “strong enough to take on the DC establishment,” he told the media gathered.
The New Jersey governor and former Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie’s endorsement of Donald Trump’s bid for the White House can be seen on various media. For video of the endorsement for Trump, see CNN posting.
Trump praised Christie, too
Trump also gave very high praise to Christie for especially regarding Rubio’s debate performance in New Hampshire. In that event, the Florida senator seemed stunned to receive criticism from Christie. Of that moment Trump told the media that he “thought [Rubio] was gonna die.”
For Christie in the future, his immediate plans are to “be a resource” for Trump and also to simply finish his term as New Jersey governor. That term in New Jersey ends January 2018. Then Christie added that he wants to go into private life and “make money like Trump.”
