In a recent interview with Fox News, Chris Christie vowed to follow President Trump nationwide if he does not participate in future debates.
Christie believes he can spar with President Trump and that they will inevitably run into each other.
More from The Hill:
GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie vowed Sunday to follow former President Trump “around the country” if the former president does not debate.
“Well, if he doesn’t do any of the debates, Howie, you know, we’re going to give him another chance,” he told Fox News’s Howard Kurtz on “Media Buzz.” “I’m sure he’s not coming to the Reagan debate. We’ll give him another chance in Alabama. But if he doesn’t come there, then I’m going to follow him around the country. Wherever he goes, I’ll go. And we’ll wind up talking to each other one way or other. And he knows that’s true.”
When pushed further on the topic, Christie confirmed he would change his schedule to follow Trump around.
Trump skipped the first GOP presidential debate last month, opting instead to sit for an interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. The former president’s allies have already signaled that he plans to skip the second debate, which will be hosted Sept. 27 by Fox Business at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif.
Chris Christie needs to get real.
Does he think he stands any chance against President Trump?
Let alone the other GOP candidates.
Chris Christie tells Fox that if Trump refuses to participate in debates, then he's going to follow Trump around the country.
"Wherever he goes, I'll go. And we'll wind up talking to each other one way or the other and he knows that."

Now let’s turn it over to USA Today:
“I’m sure he’s not coming to the Reagan debate. We’ll give him another chance in Alabama,” Christie said, referencing the yet-to-be scheduled third GOP debate expected later this year.
“But if he doesn’t come there, then I’m going to follow him around the country,” Christie said. “Wherever he goes, I’ll go. And we’ll wind up talking to each other one way or another.”
Kurtz asked the former New Jersey governor whether he would change his presidential campaign’s schedule “to go where Trump goes, just so I’m clear.”
“You bet,” Christie replied.
Christie has long criticized Trump for skipping and threatening to skip the Republican events, calling him a crybaby, loser and other taunts. The former president has defended the choice, saying he’s so far ahead in Republican polls that he doesn’t want to give rivals a free chance to take shots at him in person.
Ok, now I want to finish this post off with this legendary tweet from Roger Stone:
