President Donald Trump has shared comments from Never Trumper Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie regarding the Democrats’ efforts to remove the 45th POTUS from the 2024 ballots.
Trump highlighted comments from Christie amid the controversy over a court’s decision to remove him from the ballot.
Christie unexpectedly defended Trump after the Colorado Supreme Court narrowly ruled that Trump is “disqualified” from running for president for being an “insurrectionist.”
Christie has failed to gain traction in the primary.
His poor performance is largely owed to his vehement criticism of Trump, the GOP frontrunner.
Despite calling Trump unfit and a “dictator,” Christie said voters – not courts – should decide Trump’s fate.
Trump shared a post on Truth Social highlighting Christie’s comments.
“I do not believe Donald Trump should be prevented from being president of the United States by any court,” Christie said.
“He should be prevented from being president by the voters of this country.
“I don’t believe it is good for our country if he is precluded from the ballot by a court.
“I know it will be counterintuitive for a lot of people who listen to me about Donald Trump, but I hope this goes to prove that I don’t hate him.”
Meanwhile, fellow GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy went further than Christie.
Ramaswamy is pledging to withdraw from the ballot in Colorado in protest.
The Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling has had the effect of unifying Trump’s own primary rivals behind him, only days before the Iowa caucuses on January 15th.
“Look, it’s unfair,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said.
“They’re abusing power, 100%.”
The dynamic reflects the difficulty facing Trump’s primary challengers, who have been consistently overshadowed by Trump and his dramatic battle with a weaponized justice system.
It’s not hard to see why Trump remains a potent force when even Christie is forced to concede that Trump is being treated unfairly by the system.
When the political climate is this ruthless, it’s not surprising that Republican primary voters are rejecting appeals to ditch Trump and return to business as usual.
Trump has dominated the primary despite skipping all of the debates.
None of the attacks from Christie, Ron DeSantis, or Nikki Haley have put a dent in Trump’s lead.
Trump is widely expected to be the GOP’s nominee for president in 2024.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court in Michigan, a major swing state, ruled Wednesday that Trump can stay on the ballot.
The ruling has dealt a major blow to the Left’s peculiar campaign to “save democracy” by limiting voting options.
