Donald Trump, Chris Christie
During an interview on CNN on Wednesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie criticized Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) speech at the RNC as “awful” and “selfish.” And “why Ted has so, so richly deserved the reputation that he’s developed on Capitol Hill.” Christie said Cruz’s speech was “awful” and “selfish.” And that Cruz “signed a pledge, and it’s his job to keep his word. … And I think you the performance you saw up there is why Ted has so, so richly deserved the reputation that he’s developed on Capitol Hill.” He added, Every one of us signed a pledge, and our words should matter, and that’s what disgusts people out in your audience about politicians, that they give their word and then they think that’s negotiable.
