Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie picked a fight with Trump this week during an interview with HBO, fueling speculation that he may be contemplating a run for president in 2024.
Christie ran in 2016 but ultimately dropped out of the race due to a lack of support.
If Christie runs again in 2024, does he really expect a big change in enthusiasm for his candidacy?

Chris Christie Goes to War With Donald Trump
Chris Christie has been desperately trying to get himself into the news lately, and in what appears to be a gear-up for a 2024 run, the failed presidential candidate recently did an exclusive interview with Axios. You know, because nothing screams “vote for me” like feeding fodder to a leftwing outlet. To be fair, Christie is nowhere close to the only Republican to make that mistake and he won’t be the last.
Yet, it was when Donald Trump came up that things got the most contentious. The interviewer asked Christie about a prior slight involving the former governor having a 9% approval rating by the time he left office…
This is what unchecked arrogance pushing one into a false sense of comfort gets you. Is there anything dumber a possible 2024 hopeful could do than try to make Trump an enemy this early in the game? That’s not to say you can’t disagree with the former president on issues and approach, but Christie’s shot is not only dumb politically, it’s also highly nonsensical as well.
See the video below:

“When I ran for re-election in 2013, I got 60% of the vote. When he ran for re-election, he lost to Joe Biden.”

It would be much smarter for Christie to play his cards a little closer to his chest.
He doesn’t seem to realize that he is sticking his neck out by doing this.
