Trump, Christie attack Obama, Clinton

RNC 2016 Speaker List Here's Who's Speaking on Each Day of the Republican Convention

While Christie would have given Trump governing experience and the ability to go on the attack on the campaign trail, he presented drawbacks as a running mate, Republican strategists said.

Pressed to verify the reports that Pence was Trump's guy, Christie denied to Wallace that he knew the likely nominee's pick.

The governor didn't win much support in his own presidential campaign and has faced skepticism from conservatives.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, shown during a May 5 rally in West Virginia, said refugees from Syria "could be the all-time great Trojan horse" following Sunday's mass shooting at a Florida night club.

He said she has grown out of touch with the plight of ordinary Americans and cited her making paid speeches to corporate interests as a cause.

"I think it's time for everybody to understand this".

"The disconnect in America is deep". Mitch McConnell; Tiffany Trump; Donald Trump Jr. and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

He suggested Obama has taken sides against police in the country's debate over race and police brutality.

As the top federal law enforcement official in New Jersey for most of George W. Bush's presidency, Christie became known as a corruption-buster who won the convictions of more than 130 public officials, including two formerly powerful state senators. A text message to Trump supporters urged them to sign up to receive an early notification of his choice for vice president. He campaigned last week with former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich, and is to appear with a third No. 2 possibility, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, in Indiana on Tuesday.

The unfortunate incident comes just hours after IN governor Mike Pence was tipped to become Trump's running mate instead of Christie, who said: 'You don't like coming IN second'.

Expect Democrats to use Trump's pronouncement on the situation previous year, when he and Christie were still both vying for the party's nomination.

Trump is also considering retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn for the job, but told The Washington Post in an interview published on Monday that he is leaning toward a conventional politician.

"Someone respected by the establishment and liked by the establishment would be good for unification". He was not selected, but was given the honor of delivering the keynote address at the Republican convention where Romney officially accepted the party's nomination.

Trump said he would decide on his vice-presidential pick in the next three or four days.
