Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was met with a chorus of boos after he made a misguided and unjustified attack on former President Trump during the annual Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Policy Conference. The Republican’s attack on Trump shows the extent to which the disgruntled establishment figures continue to work against the former president.

Christie’s comments that Trump destroyed the U.S. and let down millions of Americans are ridiculous and unwarranted. Rather, it was the Republican Party that let down Trump, even though he fought for their interests consistently. Instead of supporting Trump’s policies and his efforts to make America great again, Christie and other former establishment Republicans have chosen to embrace liberal policies that harm the interest of the American people.

As a former governor, Christie lacked the leadership qualities needed to develop his state properly, and his lack of foresight led to many problems in New Jersey. It is a bit surprising that he would dare to criticize a former president who did more in four years than he did during his entire time in office.
Moreover, the hostility that Christie experienced from the crowd shows that true conservatives know where their loyalties lie. Trump’s enduring popularity stems from his unwavering commitment to the cause of the people, whereas Christie and his allies are invested in maintaining the status quo at all costs.
Trump’s response to Christie’s comments was, as expected, both measured and hilarious. Christie was unable to muster any support or credibility in his campaign because he was a bad governor who failed to improve the lives of his constituents while focusing solely on his own power and prestige. The American people need a real leader, someone like Donald Trump, who is willing to go against the establishment and work tirelessly for their benefit.
