Christie Hits Trump: No One in the 'Real World' Wants to Talk About Him
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie criticized the media this morning for focusing too much attention on Donald Trump since the day the billionaire announced his presidential candidacy.
Christie said when he talks to Americans on the campaign trail, he is not being asked about Trump.
As he stated last week, the governor referred to Trump as a "friend," but added that his comments about Mexicans and illegal immigration were "inappropriate."
"That's now the 15th time I've said it. It will be the last time I say it. But seriously. When I'm out there talking to folks, nobody in the real world asks me about this. Nobody. But every time I get on a media show, all anybody wants to talk about is Donald Trump," he said.
Christie said the discussions that Republican voters want to have are about terrorism, education, affording college tuition, entitlement spending and the country's future overall.
He said Trump's comments have "nothing to do with" how to fix the immigration system.
Ed Henry asked Christie for his thoughts on the "sanctuary cities" that exist in his own state.
Christie said there isn't much that the state can do if a city wants to implement those policies, adding that there needs to be a "federal fix" for the border and for dealing with illegal immigrants already in the country.
