Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie denounced President Donald Trump on Thursday, accusing him of inciting his supporters to storm Capitol Hill.
“That is something that no president of the United States should ever do, and I am just absolutely sickened by what I saw today,” Christie said.
Christie reacted to Trump’s actions in an interview with ABC News host George Stephanopoulos.
He condemned Trump for telling his supporters to be strong instead of weak during a rally to protest the election results and urged his supporters to march on Capitol Hill.
“Those people today who have been lied to constantly by the president about a fraudulent election acted out, and acted away not just on their own but through his encouragement,” he said.
Trump, Christie said, “breached something that I think nobody should have to put up with” from a leader in the United States.
