Former N.J. Gov. Chris Christie warned President Trump during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” roundtable that he will lose in November if he doesn’t make some big changes:
CHRIS CHRISTIE, FORMER NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR AND ABC NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Well, listen, he is losing. And if he doesn’t change course, both in terms of the substance of what he’s discussing and the way that he approaches the American people, then he will lose. There’s no question that while these national polls are less significant in terms of the raw numbers, the trend is obvious. The trend is moving towards Joe Biden, when Joe Biden hasn’t said a word. Joe Biden’s hiding in the basement and not saying anything. No — no discredit to the vice president, if you’re winning without doing anything, why do anything? The president has to change course here both in terms of the substance and answering that question much better than he did with Sean Hannity in terms of what he wants to do in a second term. And, secondly, he needs to approach the American people in a different way than he’s been approaching him recently. So I said this last week, George, you know, there’s no doubt the president’s an underdog. He’s more of an underdog today than he was a week ago. Now, there’s 128 days left as was said by Nate Silver, and there’s still a lot time to go here. And President Dukakis as I said last week was up over Vice President Bush back in 1988 at this time. So, there’s still a lot of time to go but there has to be some fundamental changes that needs to be made by the president and his team. If they don’t do it, they’re in big trouble.
