This Sunday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, said that even though he doesn’t know yet if the explosions in New York and New Jersey are connected, it’s obvious that they can be considered terrorist acts.

Despite the lack of evidence, Christie draws conclusions

“We don’t believe at this time that there’s any evidence connecting this to the attacks in New York or Minnesota,” Christie said in an interview for CNN’s “State of the Union”. “Obviously, if you look at a number of these incidents, you can call them whatever you want — they are terrorism, though,” he added.

Chris Christie made such declarations after it was revealed that the explosion in a New Jersey trash can was very similar to the one in New York city, on Saturday night, says CNN Politics.

On the other side, New York City Governor Andrew Cuomo sustained the contrary during a news conference. “There is no evidence that this explosion was connected to any international terrorism,” he said. “A bomb going off is generically a terrorist activity and … that’s how they are going to prosecute it.”

NYC Governor is still skeptical

Mr. Cuomo also added that there shouldn’t be a rush with jumping to conclusions regarding the explosions until the information that is available currently is verified. However, he did defended Donald Trump when he was criticized for calling the New York incident a “bomb” too soon, even before law enforcement officials did it.

Back to Christ Christie, during the same interview he gave for “State of the Union”, he defended Donald Trump’s decision not to release his tax returns. “It’s the advice of his lawyers and his accountants not to release tax returns while he’s under audit,” the Republican’s nominee top ally declared.
