Chris Christie: Trump messed it up with shutting down



Christie made the comments Tuesday night in an interview with Stephen Colbert of CBS about "The Late Show."

"Where do you think the wheels dropped off during the shutdown?" Colbert asked about the partial closure of the government, which ended last week after 35 days.

"The president missed it," Christie replied.

Christie, a longtime ally of the President, said he met with the President at the White House last month before the deadlock and told him to make sure that something is gained from a possible shutdown.

"I just said to him," It's OK. It's the power you have – and if you want to do it. But you just have to have a plan so that you can achieve something and then reopen it. " " he said. "And I do not think we had 35 days – we had a plan."

The closure, which began on December 22, was the result of a disagreement between Congress and the White House about how much money Trump's planned boundary wall should provide at the southern border of the United States. Trump admitted last week, agreeing to a temporary funding move that would open the government for several weeks, but not the billions of dollars he'd requested to build a border wall.
