“Oh look, I don’t know if he’s going to run. I don’t know if I’m going to run, ”Christie told Bash during an interview for the episode“ Being… Chris Christie, ”part of CNN’s“ Being… ”series, which will air Monday.
A clip of the interview was posted Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Trump has yet to announce whether he will launch a bid for the presidency in 2024, although he has been publicly flirting with the possibility for months. The prompts show that he is leaning closer to throwing his hat in the ring again.
Christie himself is also considering another run for the White House, following his failed bid in 2016. The former New Jersey governor previously said he won’t wait to see if Trump runs before making his own plans for the next election cycle. presidential.
When Bash noted the likelihood of another Trump run, Christie still declined to give a firm answer on whether she would support the former president.
“He is seriously considering it. Let’s see what happens when it does. And let’s see who he is, what he says and how he behaves, ”Christie said.
Pressed again on the question, Christie said, “I’m not going to sit here and in 2021 and prejudge all of this.”
“In 2021, the idea of making predictions for 2024 is crazy,” Christie said.
“With all due respect, that sounds like an escape,” Bash said.
“I’m sure you think it’s an escape. But you know what, I also know there is no reason to create a tumult at a party that already has a lot of tumult, ”Christie replied.
Christie was a close ally of Trump during the 2016 and 2020 campaigns, as well as during his time in office, although his stance began to change after he tested positive for COVID-19 following preparation for the debate at the White House.
He has said he was “wrong” not to wear a mask in the White House during sessions, which likely led to his COVID-19 diagnosis that resulted in a week-long hospital stay.
Since then, the former New Jersey governor has taken a firm stance against Trump’s allegations of voter fraud in the wake of the 2020 presidential election.
