New Jersey Governor and Republican Presidential Candidate Chris Christie appeared on Morning Joe on Monday and said that Americans should blame Senator Rand Paul (R- Ky.) if there is another terrorist attack.
Paul “should be in front of hearings in front of Congress if there’s another attack,” Christie claimed.
“People are really worried about ISIS, they’re worried about the threat of terrorism, and that’s why what Rand Paul has done to make this country weaker and more vulnerable is a terrible thing,” Christie said. “And for him to raise money off of it? It’s disgraceful,” Christie continued.
“As the only guy who used the Patriot Act in this race, as a former prosecutor, we’re going to look back on this, and he should be in front of hearings, in front of Congress, if there’s another attack. Not the director of the FBI or the director of the CIA,” said Christie.
Christie said that in order to defeat ISIS, the U.S. has to “arm our allies, train them, and it’s their fight.”
Sen. Paul has criticized GOP ‘war hawks’ like Christie in the past regarding their strategy of arming and training “moderate” rebels who have ultimately become ISIS fighters.
