Christie ‘Absolutely’ Believes He’d Be President If Trump Hadn’t Run


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said in a new interview he would have definitely won the 2016 presidential election if Donald Trump had not decided to run.

“I absolutely believe if Trump had not gotten into the race I think we would have won,” Christie told’s Matt Arco in an interview published Sunday.

“It’s incredibly frustrating to think to yourself, ‘Wow, if this guy were not in the race, we’d win this thing,'” he said, while reportedly reflecting on internal polling at the time of last year’s campaign.

  1. Chris Christie is delusional. The majority of the country is disgusted with this ex-governor due to New Jersey’s “A Bridge Too Far” story. Christie’s underlings were sentenced to prison because of the plot to retaliate against an anti-Christie mayor, and although Christie himself wasn’t indicted, many (including me) believe that it wouldn’t have been done without his complicity.
    If we really wanted a corrupt individual as President, we could’ve just voted for Hillary.

  2. He could believe what he so wish’s. But not a chance. Christie is one of the most hated republicans in the county.
    I’m a life long republican who voted for trump, I can’t stand back stabbing, obama hugging Christie.

    • Meeting the President of the United States on a tarmac during the aftermath of a devastating hurricane is not considered “kissing” up tp Obama. The State of NJ needed the help of the POTUS and needed serious cash. What Christie did was the right thing. You obviously weren’t affected by Sandy. Good for you. If you would’ve been, you’d be singing a different tune. Try to act mature. It will help you in the long run.

  3. has he forgotten that there were a few others remaining in the race with trump AFTEr he was out?? what makes him think that he would have beat them if not for trump?
