Trump urged Democrats to keep winning elections
Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that former President Donald Trump made sure the Democrats kept winning, not the Republicans.
Christie said: “Bad candidates lose. Good candidates have a chance of winning. And Herschel Walker was not a good candidate. And, you know, he was not a good candidate because of a whole series of issues that we saw that came out during the campaign.
He added: “Let’s remember a few things. Brian Kemp won by – had 200,000 more votes than Herschel Walker on election night. If you’re Herschel Walker and you don’t win that night, you don’t win. I mean, Kemp’s endorsement is good, but it’s the best way to get people to stick with it. Brian Kemp gave his best for Herschel Walker by beating Stacy Abrams by seven, and if Herschel Walker doesn’t get 50 that night, he won’t get it.
Christie added: ‘And on the Donald Trump side, I mean, you know, we all remember, in 2016, he said, if he were elected there would be so many wins and wins and wins and wins, they’re tired of winning. None of us knew at the time he was actually speaking that the Democrats were going to do all of this to win, not the Republicans. And that’s what he forged. And Herschel Walker is his creation. And so he has to admit the fact that Herschel Walker underperformed so much in one state that – as we saw earlier, every other Republican who ran statewide won, except for Herschel Walker. Do you know what that tells you? Bad candidate.
