  • Introduction to Video Content
  • In this video titled 'GOP Presidential Candidate Chris Christie On A National Abortion Ban | The View', Chris Christie, a Republican presidential candidate, discusses several topics including the economy, Democratic policies, and the actions of President Biden. He begins by addressing the common Republican claim that they are good for the economy, while Democratic policies are not working. He points out that recent history has shown that when Democrats are in office as presidents, there is often a surplus, but when Republicans take over, there is a deficit which Democrats then have to clean up. He also mentions that the stock market is currently performing well, job growth is improving, wages are up, and inflation is down. However, he acknowledges that groceries are still expensive, but highlights that Biden is working on addressing that issue. Christie also mentions that gas prices have gone down, and questions whether Biden should be given credit for that, considering he was blamed when prices were up. He then poses the question of what the Republicans will do in response to Biden's actions. Christie admits that there is a lot to unpack in the points mentioned, but he disagrees with the statement that inflation is down under Biden's presidency. He argues that inflation actually increased due to decisions made by Biden, specifically referencing the Inflation Reduction Act and excessive spending. He mentions that even Larry Summers, a former Treasury Secretary under Bill Clinton and not a Republican, warned that Biden's actions would result in double-digit inflation, which did occur. Christie questions the logic of giving credit to Biden for the relief of economic pain that was caused by his own decisions. However, he does express support for Biden's infrastructure plan and states that he would have voted for it. Overall, Christie's stance in the video highlights his skepticism towards certain Democratic policies and emphasizes the economic impact of decision-making in politics.
  • Subtitles section
  • Here's my question.
  • So, you know, Republicans are always talking about how they're good for the economy.
  • People believe that and how democratic policies aren't working.
  • A couple of things.
  • Number one, recent history shows that when a Democrat is in office as presidents, uh, we have a surplus and then the Republicans take over.
  • Suddenly there's a deficit and then the Democrats have to clean it up again.
  • That has happened a few times.
  • The stock market is breaking records right now.
  • Job growth is improving.
  • Wages are up.
  • Inflation is down.
  • Okay, groceries are still expensive.
  • Biden is working on that.
  • Gas is down.
  • Gas is down.
  • He got the blame when it was up.
  • Can he get the credit when it's down?
  • Can't you give this guy a little credit for what he's doing?
  • And what will the Republicans do?
  • There's so much there, I don't know where to start.
  • But look, on all the stuff you just said,
  • Inflation is up since he was president, not down.
  • It's down now.
  • It's going down.
  • It was up because of President Trump.
  • No, no, no.
  • No, no, no.
  • No, no, no.
  • Hold on.
  • Hold on.
  • Hold on.
  • COVID and the pandemic cost a lot of it.
  • And Larry Summers, no Republican,
  • former Treasury Secretary under Bill Clinton said if he went ahead with the Inflation Reduction Act and all that spending, that it was gonna increase inflation to double digits, and it did.
  • So he made conscious decisions that caused a lot of pain economically in this country.
  • Now, so you want me to say, you punched us, but now since you stopped punching us and the swelling is going down, I should give you credit for the swelling going down.
  • I mean, you know.
  • I'm leaving it, go ahead.
  • That to me just doesn't make any sense.
  • I will give him credit for the infrastructure plan, which I would have voted for and I would have supported.
  • But gas prices are still higher than they were when he got into office.
  • I'm going to jump in here, Joy.
  • So we were talking earlier about the latest abortion ruling in Texas, where doctors are going to be prevented to perform emergency abortions.
  • They're not forced to.
  • You've said that you personally oppose abortion, but would not sign a federal bill restricting the procedure unless it represented a consensus.
  • What should that consensus look like and do you oppose any limits?
  • I wouldn't sign a national ban on abortion of any kind, because I really believe that having the national government involved in this, especially you look at those people in Congress right now, right?
  • The Republicans can't get anything done in the House.
  • Democrats can't get anything done in the Senate.
  • Abortion would go back and forth like this, depending upon who was in charge.
  • It's not the right way to do it.
  • It's the wrong way to do it.
  • And so my view on it is every state make their own call.
  • Now, in Texas, what the court did there, in my opinion, was wrong.
  • Look, to be pro life, and I am pro life, but it's got to be, you've got to be trying to save a life that can be saved.
  • So the woman a few weeks ago who was carrying that abortion, that into pregnancy to the end, that's wrong to force her to do that.
  • The child was going to be either stillborn or die hours after birth and it was affecting her potential to have more children and her life going forward.
  • That's not saving a life.
  • That life couldn't be saved.
  • That's wrong to do.
  • And these are the kind of things where people stand on grandstanding rather than on what you say you're for.
  • And by the way, if we're going to be pro life, how about we be pro life the whole life?
  • and not just the nine months in the war.
  • Well, that's not a Republican position.
  • Well, it's my position, and it always has been my position.
  • Look, you look at how many people are drug addicted in this country, have mental health problems.
  • How about we worry about those lives and help them?
  • Maybe a little gun violence, too.
  • Governor Christie, so I want to ask you back to politics.
  • We're almost exactly two months out from Super Tuesday.
  • What do you think happens in these two months that could stop Donald Trump in the primary?
  • Look, if one of us either beats him or comes close to beating him in New Hampshire, I think that changes everything.
  • Because I think a lot of people are saying they're gonna support him because they think he's inevitable.
  • The minute he bleeds a little bit, I think he bleeds out.
  • Because I think the support is very, very thin.
  • And so that's what I think could happen.
  • And I think also, with him, every day there's a new legal ruling.
  • And at some point, Republican voters are gonna get practical, I think,
  • and say he can't win.
  • But what about the fact that South Carolina is actually more favorable to him than New Hampshire?
  • So even say somebody comes close to him in New Hampshire, he then once again wins in South Carolina.
  • Well, he'll win in South Carolina, then the next test is Michigan.
  • Look, after New Hampshire... Nikki Haley won't win in South Carolina.
  • She'll get smoked in South Carolina.
  • Completely smoked in South Carolina.
  • She's gonna lose by double digits in South Carolina, her home state.
  • But the truth of the matter is, we don't know that we don't know what's gonna happen because that's the magic of this country.
  • People go in and they pull a lever or they sign something.
  • So you'll have to wait with the rest of us to find out.
  • Remember, Joe Biden was finished.
  • after New Hampshire in twenty twenty.
  • Everybody said he was finished, he should drop out.
  • He went down to South Carolina and won big.
  • And then won all the states on Super Tuesday.
  • That's why we can't listen to pundits.
  • Well, not really.
  • Bernie was still running.
  • Clyburn.
  • But Clyburn helped him significantly.
  • What I'm saying, Alyssa, is that we don't know what people are going to do when they get in the voting booth.
  • That's right.
  • And so let's see what happens.
  • And look, it's not like he's running a vigorous campaign.
  • The guy spends more time playing golf
  • He's sitting in a tuxedo at Mar a Lago that he says worrying about the concerns and the problems of this country.
  • And he's a menace around the world.
  • This is a guy who supports Putin, supports Kim Jong un in North Korea, says Xi in China is brilliant because he rules with an iron fist over one point four billion
  • Governor, you said something important here, though, that this table needs to remember, because we talk about this a lot.
  • We cannot keep reiterating it's inevitable, because when people start to believe that, that's what people say all the time, it's going to show up at the booths.
  • When you become part of this talking head that says, he's just going to happen, it's just going to happen, you start to dissuade voters from the power they have.
  • That's why I'm here.
  • We didn't even talk about the fact that he calls people vermin and says that people are poisoning blood.
  • How dare you speak like that in this country?
  • I was the only candidate in our party who spoke out against that when he said it.
  • That's a disgrace.
  • Those are dog whistles to people who are the worst of our country, not the best.
  • But why would he do a thing that everybody has to remember?
  • These elections come down to you all.
  • It is you who makes this decision, not us, not any of us.
  • We can tell you what we think, but it is up to you to know exactly what you want to see this country debate.
