Chris Christie Says He'll 'Find' Trump If He Skips Next GOP Debate

Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie vowed to "find" former President Donald Trump if he refuses to appear at the party's next primary debate.

Christie shared the comments with Fox News during an interview concerning the 2024 election.

“Watch me,” Christie replied when pressed for specifics.

“You think I’m going to have a hard time finding Donald Trump? You think over the course of the next couple of months, I’m not going to find him and confront him someplace?”

Christie also argued that Trump's cases will leave Republicans vulnerable to yet another loss in 2024 in a Trump-Biden rematch.

"Whether you think they're unfair or not, they are going to impact independent voters and soft Democrats in the general election. Both sets of people we need to win a general election as Republicans. And Donald Trump cannot win those people while he's under indictment of four cases," Christie claimed.

"And if you don't think that these charges and that conduct are going to be a major focus in the general election, if we nominate Donald Trump, you're kidding yourself. And we're going to lose," he argued.

The second GOP presidential debate is scheduled for Sept. 27 and will be hosted by Fox Business.

Six of the candidates who qualified for the first debate have already qualified for the second debate, not including the former president.

Trump previously claimed he would not participate in the debates but later held out hope that he might join in some of them. Christie is hoping that Trump will show up for the next one for some direct conversation about the 2024 election.
