Donald Trump has more than his fair share of both friends and enemies.
Chris Christie pretended to be a friend before stabbing Trump in the back.
But now Donald Trump can’t stop laughing at what just came out of Chris Christie’s mouth.
Remembering Chris Christie
Back in 2009, Chris Christie became a political rock star on the Right.
Christie used tensions over the first year of the Obama Presidency and the birth of the Tea Party movement to win an off-year gubernatorial election over then-incumbent Jon Corzine.
Corzine was plagued with scandals, helping Christie score the major upset.
Christie then used emotional sentiments following Hurricane Sandy to easily win re-election in 2013.
With the two victories in his back pocket, Christie was declared a “rising star” in the GOP and labeled one of the 2016 frontrunners.
However, Christie’s 2016 White House run was a bust and he never gained momentum.
He finished at the bottom of the pack in Iowa and New Hampshire before dropping out of the race.
Christie later endorsed Donald Trump.
However, he has been very critical of Trump ever since, especially over the events at the Capitol on January 6.
Christie has big goals in mind for 2024
And now, despite having not been relevant since his time as Governor ended six-years ago, Christie thinks he is the man to upend the former President and take the top of the GOP ticket in 2024.
Republican White House hopefuls are volleying for position ahead of the GOP primaries.
And while former President Donald Trump is firmly entrenched as the frontrunner, more opponents are preparing to enter the field.
The Washington Examiner reported that Christie laid out a timeline of 45-60 days to decide on a 2024 Presidential bid.
#EXCLUSIVE: @ChrisChristie laid out a time frame for when he will decide whether to jump into the 2024 race for president.
"Next 45 to 60 days," he told @dcexaminer, noting that a campaign is still something he is actively considering.https://t.co/KKo3PwLjnU

“I think running for President of the United States is an intensely personal decision,” Christie said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “And that’s one that anybody who’s considering it should have the right to make on their own regardless of anybody else’s thoughts on it.”
Does Christie have a path to victory?
The early stages of the 2024 Republican primaries are looking to be a two-man race – and neither man is the former Governor of the Garden State.
Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are way out in front of the rest of the pack.
Christie may believe he has a path to victory by getting to the Left of Trump and DeSantis, but in reality it’s more of a path to nowhere than a path to victory.
The GOP base has to wait a couple of months to find out if Christie wants to fade gracefully into the sunset or suffer another embarrassing loss.
