Before dropping out of the 2024 Republican presidential race on Wednesday, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was caught on a hot mic blasting his rival Nikki Haley as “not up to this”, along with mocking Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as “petrified.”

45th President Donald Trump reacted on Truth Social to the hot mic audio from Chris Christie, indicating that he “might even get to like him again!”

New York Post reports:

Moments before Christie, 61, announced at a town hall in Windham, NH, he was suspending his campaign, The Post heard him on a video feed promoted by his campaign grousing about the state of the race.

“She’s spent $68 million so far just on TV,” Christie said of Haley before the video was yanked offline, later adding that DeSantis had spent “$59 million … and we’ve spent 12.

“Who’s punching above their weight and who’s getting a return on their investment?” Christie went on. “You know? And she’s going to get smoked. And you and I both know it, she’s not up to this.”

Seemingly unaware that he could be heard to anyone waiting for him to take the stage, Christie added that “DeSantis called me petrified that I would,” apparently referencing leaving the race, before another person said: “He’s probably getting out after Iowa.”

Trump reacted to Christie’s remarks about Haley on Truth Social, writing, “I hear Chris Christie is dropping out of the race today — I might even get to like him again!”

“Anyway, he was just caught on a hot mic making a very truthful statement: ‘She’s gonna get smoked…You and I both know it, she’s not up to this.'” he added.


In an additional post, Trump wrote, “Nikki Haley is losing in the Polls to Biden everywhere, except one very early, very FAKE poll, that she uses to a fair the Welle. I am beating Crooked Joe in every current poll!”
