Republicans are turning on presidential candidate Donald Trump left and right over the Trump University case and his comments regarding Judge Gonzalo Curiel. Even Paul Ryan, the supposed leader of the GOP, and Newt Gingrich, a possible VP choice, are on the verges of backing out support. Very few have come out in defense of Trump, and some were unexpected like Piers Morgan and Latino Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez.
However, one politician has remained staunch and dedicated in his support for Trump. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie had stood by Trump since February, and still casted his ballot in the New Jersey primary Tuesday. Christie assured journalists and reporters Trump “is not a racist.”
Christie told reporters allegations that the New York real-estate developer and reality television star is racist are “absolutely contrary to every experience I’ve had with him over the last 14 years. I’m not going to micro-analyze every bit of a campaign because, you know what, the voters don’t. What matters here is winning and losing, first and foremost. And what matters here is where the country’s direction will be after whoever wins this election. That’s what I’m focused on. Voters are not going to make their decision based on this kerfuffle.”
Whether you’re a fan of Christie or not, the Governor has stood by Trump’s side when everyone else is jumping ship.
