Trump criticized Sununu for refusing to oppose Democratic Senator Maggie Hassan for the U.S. Senate seat in 2022. Hassan easily defeated Don Bolduc, a Republican contender who had received support from Trump. For the 2024 election, Bolduc endorsed Nikki Haley, a former U.S. ambassador to the UN.
At a Manchester rally attended by nearly 2,000 people, Trump criticized Sununu stating, “He could’ve really made an impact. He could have entered the Senate race. Due to his family name, he most likely would have won with ease. That would have been a fantastic thing. Instead, he prefers to pretend to be running for president.”
For months Chris Sununu kept giving hints about a potential run in 2024. Earlier this month, when CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked the governor of New Hampshire if he wanted to be president, he responded, “I think I could do the job.”
When Harlow stated, that was the closest he had gotten to announcing his run, to which Sununu responded, “I’m looking at it… it’s a big decision for the family, for the process, for the party.”
Sununu attacked Trump in that same interview, saying he accomplished “very little, he didn’t drain the swamp like he promised, didn’t provide border security like he promised.”
The Governor also stated that Trump might end up being a “four-time loser” in 2024, like earlier when Republicans lost in 2018 and 2022. As well as Trump’s own election defeat in 2020.
In the meantime, on Thursday, Trump also made fun of the former governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, calling him “sloppy Chris Christie” and pointing out that most polls conducted for the year 2024 show Christie has a support level of just 1%.
“Which, by the way, is significantly better than what he performed against me on the same stage seven years ago right here in New Hampshire,” Trump remarked. Christie and Trump competed against one another in the 2016 GOP primary before Christie withdrew and supported Trump.
Christie, who was previously an ally but has subsequently turned out to be a vocal critic of the former president, was described by Trump as having “Got a big mouth — that’s all he’s got.”
Late last month, Christie declared that he was “definitely thinking about running” for president in 2024 and that he intended to make a choice in the upcoming 60 days.
Last month, Christie made the following remarks about Trump in an interview with the Washington Examiner – “He told us throughout that campaign in ’16 that we would do so much winning that we would become weary of winning. However, we lost the House in 2018; the White House and the Senate in 2020; more governorships and a Senate seat in 2022; and we underperformed in the House historically.”
“I’m sick of losing, and I’m sick of being let down. Most Republicans, in my opinion, are also. And this argument needs to be made, and it needs to be made to the members of our party. Then we’ll watch to see how they respond,” Christie added.
Along with that, Trump on Thursday provided a new nickname to President Joe Biden – “Crooked Joe Biden.”
According to Trump, he would like to relieve Hillary Clinton from her previous nickname of “crooked” and will give her a new name like lovely Hillary or beautiful Hillary. He further justified that he’s abandoning Hillary Clinton’s previous nickname, “crooked,” so that he can use it for Joe Biden, who will now be known as Crooked Joe Biden.
He described Joe Biden as “The most crooked and dishonest politician in the history of American politics” and referred to him as “grossly incompetent.”
