Things are getting worse with each day for Donald Trump’s campaign, as one of his most important advocates, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, criticized his 2005 remarks in a very aggressive manner.
“Let’s be really clear, it is completely indefensible,” Christie said this morning. “I won’t defend it and haven’t defended it. That kind of talk and conversation, even in private, is just unacceptable.”
“Donald Trump was upset by his remarks”
According to ABC News, this morning, during WFAN’s “Boomer and Carton Show”, Chris Christie talked about the conversation Donald Trump had back in 2005 with Billy Bush, where the two talk about affairs with married women and how to make a move on them.
The Governor, who dropped out of the presidential race during the primaries, in February, said that as soon as the leaked tape was made public, he advised Trump to offer a sincere apology, in order to maintain his chances. Christie also added that the Republican nominee was apparently “upset,”, “disturbed” and “disappointed” by the remarks he made 11 years ago.
“I made that very clear to Donald on Friday when this first came out and, you know, urged him to be contrite and apologetic because that’s what he needs to be,” Chris Christie added. “This is just, you know, stuff that you just can’t, can’t be involved in and shouldn’t even be thinking.”
Is it already over for Trump?
Over the past few days, several GOP members criticized the businessman, some of them even asking him to suspend his current campaign and let running-mate Mike Pence confront Hillary Clinton in the upcoming debates and general elections.
Soon after the recordings were revealed, Donald Trump released a written statement, claiming that everything was just “locker room banter”. “Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended,” he wanted to add.
