  • The former governor of the US state of New Jersey made his bid for the Republican presidential nomination public on Tuesday (local time).

  • Former Trump confidant Chris Christie is on the attack – Trump has so far been ahead in internal party polls.

  • In the meantime, the field of Republican candidates has grown significantly.

With the earlier one Governor of New JerseyChris Christie, on Tuesday announced another contender for the presidential nomination the US Republicans reported. He had already applied for it in 2016, but was defeated by the later President Donald Trump. Initially a close advisor to Trump, there was a rift in 2020 because of Trump’s refusal to recognize Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election at the time.

“I want your support,” Christie said in front of an audience in Manchester, New Hampshire. Christie previously wanted to be his party’s presidential candidate in 2016, but withdrew after poor results in the primaries.

“Donald Trump made us smaller”

The 60-year-old attacked the ex-president directly in his speech: “Donald Trump has made us smaller by dividing us even further and playing one group against another every day.” Trump is obsessed with the mirror, never admits a mistake, always blames someone else for mishaps, and always wants to take credit for everything that goes well, Christie said. Trump commented on Christie’s speech on his Twitter replacement Truth Social as “boring” – it was difficult to bear.

Christie also criticized that there are applicants for the candidacy who “say that we shouldn’t care about what’s happening in Ukraine”. Those politicians said Americans shouldn’t care “that Russia wants to bring back a free and freedom-loving country under its thumb,” complained Christie, who detailed US history in his speech.

Pence announcement expected on Wednesday

Trump had already declared last November that he wanted to run again in the 2024 presidential election. In the meantime, the field of Republican candidates has grown significantly. In addition to former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, several others have announced their applications in recent weeks. Trump’s former deputy Mike Pence has also submitted the necessary documents – his official announcement is expected this Wednesday. In internal party polls, Trump is ahead.
