Christie calls Trump’s Charlottesville comments ’a mistake’


Published: Mon, August 21, 2017 @ 12:42 p.m.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says President Donald Trump’s racially fraught comments about “both sides” being to blame for a deadly neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, were “a mistake.”

But Christie says he know Trump isn’t a racist.

The Republican governor made the comments Monday during an unrelated event in East Rutherford. Christie says there’s not a moral equivalency between neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

Christie is a close political ally of Trump and leads his national drug commission.

Christie just returned from a 10-day vacation and says he hasn’t spoken to the president yet.

But he says he’ll keep any advice he has for him between Trump and himself.
