In an interview with Axios, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) criticized former President Donald Trump for his refusal to accept that he lost the 2020 general election to President Joe Biden. Christie’s statements came in response to a statement released by Trump earlier this week claiming that Christie had left office with a low approval rating.

“Listen, I’m not going to go back and forth with Donald Trump. But what I’m going to say is this: when I ran for re-election in 2013, I got 60 percent of the vote. When he ran for re-election, he lost to Joe BidenChristie said. “I’m happy that this comparison holds up because that’s what really matters.”

In case there were any doubts, Christie is still very Republican.

Christie reaffirmed her commitment to fighting democratic politics, telling Axios’ Mike Allen, “I have made the conscious decision, Mike, that I want to spend my time fighting Joe Biden’s policies and Kamala Harris and trying to help Republicans win governorships and the House and Senate in 2022. “

Earlier this week, Trump attacked Christie over remarks he made to the Jewish Republican Coalition (RJC) in Las Vegas.

“Chris Christie, who just gave a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) in Las Vegas, was utterly butchered by his claims that Republicans must overcome the past, which means 2020 election fraud,” Trump She said in a statement. “Everyone remembers that Chris left New Jersey with an approval rating of less than 9% – a low record, and they didn’t want to hear it from him!”

Christie had urged Republicans to move beyond Trump’s concern for the 2020 election, which he definitely lost.

“We can’t talk about the past and past elections anymore – no matter where you are on that issue, no matter where you are, it’s over,” Christie said at the time. “Every minute we spend talking about 2020 – as we waste time doing it, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are ruining this country. We better focus on that and take our eyes off the rearview mirror and start looking through the windshield again. “
