Christie: Republicans Who Aren't 'Working for Trump' Are for Hillary

MSNBC's "Morning Joe"

By    |   Wednesday, 20 Jul 2016 04:16 PM

Jeb Bush and other Republicans who can't bring themselves to support Donald Trump face "a binary choice, and every Republican who is not working for Trump is working for Clinton," Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday.

In an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program, Christie, who supported Trump when he dropped his own presidential bid last fall, said bitter or not, the skeptical Republicans have to decide.

"And I said this to Jeb Bush the other day," Christie said. "'It's chicken or fish, man. It's one or the other.'

"This is not like a political science class," Christie said. "This is the real world. There is a binary choice here. It's Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump was not my first choice for president. I was. Right? It didn't work out."

The former Florida governor has been particularly bitter about Trump's ascendance in the party, but Christie said there's no alternative for Republicans.

"I can't see where people are at the point where they want Hillary Clinton," Christie said. "I would love to live in a world where I could say, 'well, I don't like the choice of my own party, therefore I'm just going to sit it out.'

"But the absolute result of sitting it out is a Hillary Clinton presidency," speculating she would pick three "ultra-liberal justices" to the Supreme Court.

"I would look at my friends like Jeb Bush and [Ohio Gov.] John Kasich and say, 'Satisfied? Your conscience is pure now? Excellent. Good for you.' But the fact is that he will make good choices for the Supreme Court from the perspective of a conservative, and certainly much better choices for the Supreme Court."
