After helping to broker a deal late Friday night that averted a looming NJ Transit strike, Gov. Chris Christie will head back to the presidential campaign trail Monday in support of Republican candidate Donald Trump.Christie first endorsed the businessman and former Atlantic City casino owner late last month and has since appeared with him at campaign stops in Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas and Florida.
Trump’s schedule for Monday includes visits to Florida, Ohio and North Carolina ahead of Tuesday primaries in all three states. It’s currently unclear if Christie will accompany Trump at all of Monday’s designated campaign events.
For the Trump campaign, Monday’s schedule follows an intense weekend that saw events marked with heavy protests and frequent disruptions. On Friday evening, Trump was forced to cancel a rally in Chicago amid security concerns.
Speaking on Friday night at a news conference to announce the NJ Transit deal, Christie, who was vacationing last week in Florida, said that the responsibility for the chaos surrounding Trump’s campaign did not lie solely with him.
On Sunday during an interview for NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump said that while he does not condone the violence seen at some of his rallies, he does not accept responsibility for what’s taking place.
