When President Trump was preparing to take the Oath of Office, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was cozying up with him trying to get a lucrative position. But after he was slighted, Chris Christie put his rage into a tell-all memoir about how President Trump is blundering through the presidency without putting any thought or research into what he is doing.
For example, Christie writes in his book that Trump’s administration is made up of “amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons” and that Trump made sure his people “were hustled into jobs they were unsuited for” without even typing their name into Google to see what they have been up to good or bad.
Chris Christie’s book hits bookstores on January 29, 2019, so only a few lines have been published and released to the public so far. But if the samples are telling, then Chris Christie’s book could make conservatives look at Trump for an entirely different angle.
Besides targeting his rage on Trump, Christie lashes out at senior Trump advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner. In a quick judgment, Christie says that Trump “trusts people he shouldn’t including some of the people who are closest to him.”
Snippets from Christie’s book have been published on Axios, which obtained an advanced copy and are sharing news about it.
Christie claims that Trump’s highest-ranking appointees and trusted advisors often got the job “without so much as a background check via Google or Wikipedia.”
Although Axios has published an expert, it left readers clamoring for more because they did not publish exact names. But it is a well-known rumor that Christie has his sights set on Kushner because he believes the President’s son-in-law had a hand in keeping Christie out of the administration, which might have destroyed his political career.
In one instance, disgraced former White House official Steve Bannon once told Christie that “The kid’s been taking an ax to your head with the boss ever since I got here. It’s been constant. He never stops. Ancient bitterness, I guess.”
In the book, Christie goes into depth about this exchange with himself and Bannon.
“In Bannon-speak,” Christie reveals, “the KID is only one person. Not Donald Jr. not Ivanka Trump and the son of the real estate developer Charles Kushner, a man I once sent to prison.”
In an interview with The Guardian, Chris Christie described Kushner executing a political “hit job” that kept him out of the Trump administration. That’s because Kushner doesn’t like Christie. Christie was the person in charge of Kushner’s prosecution back in 2004 when Kushner did bad things in the state of New Jersey. Because Christie went after billionaire Charles Kushner, the father of the president’s son-in-law, he made a name for himself on the political map. If it wasn’t for Jared’s family, Christie would not have reached the heights he has. So there is bitterness between them.
Charles Kushner pleaded guilty to 16 counts of tax evasion and one count of retaliating against a federal witness.
