Chris Christie mocks Trump for prop Resolute Desk: He ‘can’t believe he’s not president’

Former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie saying it Donald Trumps ego may never recover from the blow Joe Biden gave him in 2020.

In an appearance on ABC’s This week on Sunday, the former Trump ally mocked his 2016 running mate over a photo the president recently posted showing him behind a large wooden desk at Mar-a-Lago that bears striking similarities to the massive Resolute Desk in the Oval Office .

Christie said the president’s choice of decoration showed Trump still needed to think of himself as commander-in-chief, which he argued was the underlying reason he and his team had held on to documents, including classified materials, rather than hand them over to the National Archives. The former president remains under investigation by the Justice Department as a court-appointed special master reviews hundreds of documents seized from his home.

“He can’t believe he’s not president,” Mr Christie said.

“He’s got to show everybody down at Mar-a-Lago … that he still has some of those traits,” Mr. Christie. “The replica Resolute Desk at Mar-a-Lago and all the other things that dampen his disappointment and his disbelief that he’s no longer president.”

It is a brutal critique of the temperament and personality of the man Mr Christie once sought to serve under in the early days of the Trump administration, when he was widely known to have pursued an appointment to the role of attorney General.

Christie advised Trump on the latter’s 2016 campaign after the governor’s own withdrawal from the race. He would later go on to support the second impeachment of the president in 2021 after the attack on the US capitol.

He has left open the possibility of also seeking the GOP nomination for president in 2024, which would set him up for a likely rematch against Mr. Trump in the primary.
