Chris Christie took shots at his fellow GOP presidential candidates, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, and Democrats Tuesday morning, telling the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe that they had made America less safe with their stances on metadata collection. Check out the clip below.

“Has Ted Cruz’s position and Rand Paul’s position on collecting metadata made America less safe?” host Joe Scarborough asked.

“Yes,” Christie responded simply.

“So Ted Cruz has made America less safe?” pressed Scarborough.

“Sure he has,” Christie responded. “He went for the easy political vote at a time when it looked like it kind of was a popular thing to do. With all those dead Parisians it doesn’t look so popular anymore.”

Many Republicans, like Cruz and Paul, joined Democrats to pass the US Freedom Act. That act, Christie argued, made the United States “weaker and less able” to fight terrorism. Christie was a strong supporter of the NSA’s phone/email and electronic metadata collection program, which expired only a few days ago.

 

While Donald Trump still leads the GOP race, Cruz has risen to 16% with Christie at 2% and Paul falling to only 1% of the vote. Full article on that latest poll – click here.
