Christie: Clinton Doesn’t Know What Real Americans Need


chris christieHillary Clinton took the center stage in New York City for the first major policy speech in her 2016 campaign yesterday, but New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he heard someone else: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

“First off, I thought that Elizabeth Warren wasn’t running for president,” Christie, who is expected to mount his own presidential campaign, told ABC “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos Sunday, complaining that the speech sounded like it was put together by “liberal political consultants.”

But that issue brings up a bigger point for the former secretary of state, said Christie.

“I have done 146 town hall meetings in New Jersey.” he said. “Mrs. Clinton doesn’t hear from anybody, she doesn’t take questions from anybody. How would she know what real Americans are concerned about? I don’t know. I don’t understand when she would know.”

Christie said he has not yet announced his campaign because he has a “day job” running a “significant state with a lot of back and forth.”

“I have a Democratic legislature that I have to work with and it’s not the easiest thing to do in the world,” the Republican governor said. “We have a budget to finish by June 30. So, I got to keep my eye on my day job. As I said last week, this decision is now up to me. I’ll make it during the month of June.”
