Donald Trump adviser Gov. Chris Christie said voters will not judge Hillary Clinton on her debate with the GOP nominee, but on what she did "when she had the reins of power in her hands."

In an interview on MSNBC after the Monday night face-off between Trump and Clinton, the New Jersey Republican said "if the American people want the same thing they've had for the last eight years, they got their candidate" in Clinton.

"If they want change . . . you saw something very different from the same old thing," he said of Trump's debate performance.

"You can always do better," he added. "Nobody liked President [Barack] Obama's performance on his first debate."

"The American people can make a decision here," he said. "Let's judge Clinton's performance . . . when she had the reins of power in her hands."

He also pushed back on a suggestion from Clinton campaign manager John Podesta that Trump won't want to show up at the next two debates.

"Podesta [is] in the camp of wishful thinking," he said, adding: "If Donald Trump didn't show up, Hillary still wouldn't win."
