Chris Christie has doubts Trump will last more than one term: ‘Four years is a long time’

From lounging with his family on a closed beach to getting called names on the radio to mixing it up with a heckler at a Cubs game (all the while maintaining an iron grip on those legendary nachos), New Jersey Governor Chris Christie clearly marches to the beat of his own drummer.

He didn’t get the job he wanted in Trump’s cabinet. He’s not running for re-election, and his anemic approval ratings (hellooo 16 percent!) make President Trump and even Congress look like the popular kids in the room by comparison.

So when the New Jersey governor says what’s on his mind, as he seemingly always has, you know he’s got nothing to lose.

During an interview on NBC’s “Today” show Friday morning with host Matt Lauer, Christie speculated about whether or not President Trump will run for another term.

“If he runs again I would support him, yes, but I’m not so sure what will happen,” said Christie. “Four years is a long time, and especially for someone who has not spent a lifetime in politics, so I think those years affect him differently, so I’m sure the president will make whatever decision is best for him and his family and the county. If he runs again, absolutely I expect to be with him.”

Trump would also be the oldest president to run for a second term, so there’s that. But he’s also the first Republican in a generation to turn the electoral map on its head and manufacture a win for the GOP where none seemingly existed.

It never hurts to go with a proven winner.
