Christie Backstabs Trump

Chris Christie Keeps Options Open for 2024 Vote, Excludes Trump 🗳️

Chris Christie, the former Governor of New Jersey, has openly stated that he won’t be supporting Donald Trump in the upcoming November election, leaving the door open to possibly endorsing President Joe Biden or another candidate. During a conversation on the “Pod Save America” podcast by Crooked Media, Christie expressed his hesitance to commit to Biden, hinting at his interest in a potential third-party campaign by Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) under the No Labels banner.

Christie emphasized the uncertainty of the final electoral lineup, dismissing Bobby Kennedy Jr.’s candidacy as inconsequential while spotlighting the No Labels initiative as a significant movement poised to offer an alternative unity ticket. “The only certainty I have at this point is my resolve not to vote for Trump,” Christie remarked, noting that a nomination like Manchin’s would sway his vote.

No Labels, known for its aim to bridge political divides, has been considering Manchin among others for a unity ticket, sparking debates within political circles, especially among Democrats concerned about splitting the vote in Trump’s favor.

Addressing the dilemma of a third-party vote potentially aiding Trump, Christie downplayed the impact of his individual vote in a predominantly Democratic New Jersey. He stressed the importance of making an informed decision closer to Election Day, underscoring his preference for Manchin over Biden based on qualifications for the presidency.

Pressed on the imperative of blocking Trump’s return to the White House, Christie remained noncommittal about backing Biden, stating, “I haven’t ruled it out. I’m just not there yet. My firm decision is against supporting Trump in any scenario.”

This stance follows Christie’s recent exit from the GOP primary and his previous comments to NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he is unlikely to support the Democratic frontrunner, illustrating his ongoing deliberation over the best course of action for the country’s future in the 2024 election.
