Christie: ‘Joe Biden’s Hugest Risk Is He’s Jeb Bush’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) weighed in on the 2020 presidential race, likening former Vice President Joe Biden to failed 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

Christie, who also ran for the GOP nomination in 2016, said Biden, like Bush in 2016, does not understand today’s political times.

“I’d say … that Joe Biden’s hugest risk is he’s Jeb Bush,” Christie told host George Stephanopoulos.

“He’s the guy who comes out as the frontrunner early, he’s the guy with enormous history, he’s got associations like Joe Biden does with Barack Obama and others who lift him,” he explained. “But can he be someone who addresses today’s needs? Jeb, I think, never understood the political times we were in and he never changed and adjusted. Will Joe Biden [be able to] change and adjust to these times?”
