President Barack Obama has created an atmosphere of "lawlessness," that has led to protests at the University of Missouri, Yale University, and other schools across the country, GOP candidate Chris Christie said Wednesday, promising to apply justice in the land if he's elected.

"I think part of this is a product of the president's own unwillingness and inability to bring people together," Christie said after an appearance in Muscatine, Iowa, reports The Washington Post. "When people think justice is not applied evenly and fairly, they take matters into their own hands."

Such "lawlessness," he continued, "just absolutely strips people of hope. Our administration would stand for the idea that justice is not just a word, but it's a way of life. Laws will be applied evenly, fairly, and without bias to everyone."

Christie earlier in the day used similar terms to chastise the Black Lives Matter movement, telling NJ.com reporter Claude Brodesser-Akner that he won't meet with those protesters, or any group that "calls for the murder of police officers," and "no president of the United States should dignify a group like that by saying anything positive about them, and no candidate for president, like Hillary Clinton, should give them any credibility by meeting with them, as she's done."

The calls for the deaths of police officers have not been in most Black Lives Matter protests, however, The Post reports, with the exception of protesters in a massive march after a grand jury did not charge New York police after the chokehold death of Eric Garner. In that case, people in the march changed "What do we want? Dead cops!"

Christie, though, did not blame political correctness for the campus protests, like other candidates, such as retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, noting that his children attend Notre Dame and Princeton, where folks aren't acting "the way that the students in Missouri or at Yale are acting."
