Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is intensifying his commitment to challenge former President Donald Trump on the Republican presidential campaign circuit, but he's keeping his strategies under wraps for now.
"Get ready. That’s all I’m going to tell you," said Christie during a Fox News interview on Thursday, following his registration to appear on the presidential primary ballot in New Hampshire, the state hosting the second event of the 2024 GOP nomination process.
"Because if I give [Trump] and the Secret Service a tip as to where I’m going to be, it will be a lot harder for me to get to him. Remember, he’s the only guy walking around with Secret Service protection. So, that makes all of this a little more complicated. But I also was in law enforcement, so hang with me," Christie said.
For several months, Christie, in his second attempt at the White House, has promised to challenge Trump during debates.
Christie, known for his confrontational political style much like Trump, has consistently emphasized his capability to challenge Trump in debates. Despite Trump making his third consecutive bid for the White House and dealing with an unprecedented four criminal indictments, two of which are related to his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election loss to President Biden, he remains a dominant contender for the Republican nomination.
However, since Trump has opted out of the first two GOP presidential debates and declared he won't participate in the upcoming third one, Christie declared earlier last month his intention to ensure Trump doesn't secure the Republican Party's nomination in 2024 by other means.
"We’ve got 100-plus days until the primary. Donald Trump and I will come face-to-face, whether it’s on a debate stage or whether it’s when he’s walking out of a building somewhere," Christie said.
