During a rally in New Hampshire on Saturday, former president Donald Trump cited Russian President Vladimir Putin and said that immigrants were “poisoning the blood of our country.” On Sunday, former New Jersey governor Chris Christie ripped into Trump for these comments.

The situation with Trump is becoming “worse and worse by the day,” Christie stated while appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“He’s going completely bonkers. On Sunday, the Republican running for president made the statement that Russian President Vladimir Putin, “a guy who is a murderous thug all around the world,” is being cited as a character witness.

During his rally in Durham, New Hampshire on Saturday, Trump drew inspiration from Putin, echoing the Russian leader’s words that the indictments against Trump undermine America’s standing as a global model of democracy. The former president also warned the audience that immigrants are “poisoning the blood of our country” as a compromise on border security is hung in the balance in Congress.

“He’s repulsive,” Christie exclaimed. “And all he’s doing is whining to the American people, who are already feeling the overwhelming pressure of the global economy and all the wars going on.”

Christie slammed other figures on Sunday, not just Trump. He went on to criticise former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley for supporting Trump’s bid for reelection and the lawmakers who have backed Trump.

Are you saying that the person who claims immigrants are contaminating our nation and who calls Vladimir Putin a character witness was the most qualified candidate for president during that time? “Nikki Haley ought to be embarrassed,” Christie remarked.
