Donald Trump's speech in New Hampshire included comments about undocumented immigrants "poisoning the blood of our country." This caused significant reactions, especially coming from a former US president. Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is among those surprised by Trump's words. He expressed his anger for two reasons: Trump's reference to Vladimir Putin and his chauvinistic, nationalist, and racial remarks.
"Trump gets worse and worse by the day,” Christie said talking on CNN, as quoted by politico.com!
Chris Christie does not understand why Donald Trump constantly reaches for similar statements that he knows will cause reactions and chaos.
“He’s becoming crazier. And now he’s citing Vladimir Putin as a character witness, a guy who is a murderous thug all around the world,” -he continued.
Chris Christie reacts to Trump's statement: He’s disgusting
At a time when there is an economic crisis in the world, as well as a war on two fronts, these statements of Donald Trump deeply worry not only the people of the US but also people around the world. Christie believes that Trump must reach out to some more important topics that are crucial in a time of great crisis.
“He’s disgusting,” Christie said. “And what he’s doing is dog-whistling to Americans who feel absolutely under stress and strain from the economy and from the conflicts around the world.”
Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley was also the subject of criticism from Christie. Her statement that Trump is still fit to serve caused an angry reaction from Christie.
“You’re telling me that someone who says that immigrants are poisoning the blood of this country, someone who says Vladimir Putin is a character witness is fit to be president of the United States, was the right president at the right time? Nikki Haley should be ashamed of herself,” Christie said.
