New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spoke to the Republican National Convention Tuesday night in Cleveland.
Here’s the prepared text of the governor’s speech:
“I am here tonight not only as the Governor of New Jersey, but also as Donald Trump’s friend for the last fourteen years.
We are about to be led by not only a strong leader but by a caring, genuine and decent person.
I am proud to say that the voice of the people of our nation is being heard in this hall and those voices want Donald Trump to be the next President of the United States. But this election is not just about Donald Trump.
It is also about his Democratic opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
In the past few weeks we have seen this Justice Department refuse to prosecute her.
Over the last eight years, we have seen this Administration refuse to hold her accountable for her dismal record as Secretary of State.
Well, tonight, as a former federal prosecutor, I welcome the opportunity to hold her accountable for her performance and her character.
We must present those facts to you, a jury of her peers, both in this hall and in living rooms around our nation.
Since the Justice Department refuses to allow you to render a verdict, let’s present the case now, on the facts, against Hillary Clinton. She was America’s chief diplomat. Look around at the violence and danger in our world today every region of the world has been infected with her flawed judgment.
But let me be specific so you can render your verdict. In North Africa, she was the chief engineer of our disastrous overthrow of Qaddafi in Libya.
Libya today after Hillary Clinton’s grand strategy? Libya’s economy in ruins, death and violence in the streets and ISIS now dominating the country.
Hillary Clinton, as a failure for ruining Libya and creating a nest for terrorist activity by ISIS guilty or not guilty? In Nigeria, Hillary Clinton amazingly fought for two years to keep an Al-Qaeda affiliate off the terrorist watch list.
What happened because of this reckless action by the candidate who is the self proclaimed champion of women around the world? These terrorists abducted hundreds of innocent young girls two years ago.
These schoolgirls are still missing today.
Here’s the video of Christie’s entire speech:
As you can probably imagine, liberals in media are having a fit about this today.
