“I think that he’ll show up at the debates because his ego won’t permit him not to,” Christie said. He won’t deal well with that.”I warned that Trump is an asymmetrical fighter, so it’s hard to know how to go at him. He’s never run against somebody from New Jersey who understands what the New York thing is and what he’s all about. He knows I know what his game is.”He said he isn’t running to get back at Trump for giving him a horrible case of Covid. Trump came to debate prep in September 2020 without telling Christie or anyone else that he had tested positive the day before, and Christie ended up in the I.C.U.
