Chris Christie Vows To Have Public Confrontation With Trump In Next Couple Of Months

Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie said this week that he will track down and publicly confront former President Donald Trump on the campaign trail over the next couple of months.

The former New Jersey governor said during an interview over the weekend that he would start following Trump around the country if Trump continues to skip Republican Party primary debates.

Christie said at a town hall in New Hampshire on Tuesday that he was working with his staff to come up with a plan to confront Trump because he was “pretty much hiding in the basement.”

“This is a guy who’s taking advantage of the fact that he lives behind the walls of private clubs and he has Secret Service protection,” he said. “So what we’re going to basically have to do is go to public events of his and try to confront him. If he won’t show up at debates, then that’s what we’re going to have to do. I mean, I don’t know how else to do it.”

Christie said what he would like to do is have “a press conference outside his house, but you can’t do that because he lives behind the walls of these private clubs and I wouldn’t be able to get into them.”He said that he thinks he will cross paths with Trump in California at the end of the month after the September 27 debate and that he might stay in the area longer to see if he can force a confrontationChristie doubled down on his remarks after the town hall, telling reporters: “Watch me.”“You think I’m going to have a hard time finding Donald Trump? You think that over the course the next couple of months, I’m not going to find him and confront him someplace?” Christie said. “I was a prosecutor for seven years. It was my job to find people and confront them. So don’t worry about it, I’ll find him.”A spokesperson for the Trump campaign mocked Christie’s plan, saying in a statement that he was “a stone-cold loser who spends every day on the cable news casting couch auditioning for a contributor contract whenever his joke of a campaign ends up in flames.”
