President Trump pal and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Saturday urged his friend to accept the election results and “move on” if his legal challenges don’t produce any evidence of voter fraud after learning Joe Biden had clinched the presidency.
“The votes need to be counted and the president has a right to pursue the legal options that wants to pursue, and he’s going to pursue those,” Christie told ABC News.
“I would hope that if he pursues those legal options and that they turned out not to bear fruit, and I said, I haven’t seen any evidence yet at all that they should, that he would do that, that he would make a speech that, you know, would … try to be one to help people to understand that the election is over — and that we need to move on.”
Trump on Saturday refused to concede the election, insisting it is “far from over.”
Christie, in recent days, has called out his ally for making grandiose statements about voter fraud, without producing any proof it exists.
“If you’re gonna say those things from behind the podium at the White House — it’s his right to do it, it’s his right to pursue legal action — but show us the evidence,” Christie said following Trump’s Thursday night speech in which he claimed Democrats were attempting to “steal the election.”
A Biden victory was forecasted on Saturday, after Pennsylvania results were called in his favor, putting him above the 270 electoral votes needed to clinch the presidency.
