Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie urged the GOP to dump Donald Trump in harsh remarks on the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual management assembly in Las Vegas Saturday.
“It is time to stop being afraid of any one person. It is time to stand up for the principles and the beliefs that we have founded this party on and this country on,” mentioned Christie, who emphasised that he was with Trump from early on in his first marketing campaign.
“We keep losing and losing and losing,” Christie added, referring to the Republicans’ dismal midterm election efficiency. “The fact of the matter is the reason we’re losing is because Donald Trump has put himself before everybody else.”
Christie mentioned Republicans are actually confronted with a selection between “the party of me,” referring to Trump’s self-involvement, or the “party of us.”
“We don’t want to do bending to the will of one person, rather than advocating for the good for all of our people,” added Christie, who might run in opposition to Trump for the Republican presidential nomination.
Christie was considered one of a number of outstanding Republicans who spoke on the assembly, together with Trump. The former president addressed the assembly remotely by way of a dwell feed. He didn’t reply to Christie’s assaults.
