Chris Christie

Born 9/6/1962

Governor of New Jersey (R) 2010 – Present

Governor Christie threw his hat into the race for the Republican Nomination of the 2016 presidential election on Tuesday June 30, 2015.  Fourth to announce his candidacy, he was one of 17 Republicans competing for the party’s ultimate support.  Hoping to overcome “Bridgegate” where it was widely suspected that he purposefully clogged the George Washington Bridge entering New York City as political punishment, he never was able to overcome the suspicions that he and his staff ran a corrupt Governor’s office.  After finishing sixth in the New Hampshire primary, he withdrew from the race on  February 10, 2016 and quickly gave his support to Trump.

One of Trump’s earliest and most ardent supporters, many believed Christie to be lining up for the Vice Presidency.  However, on July 15th Trump announced Mike Pence as his choice of Vice President.  Christie remained with the campaign as an advisor and was later given the task to organize the transition should Trump win the election.  It appeared Christie was in good favor with Trump through most of October, but as Trump gained steam, it was clear Christie was getting left behind.  Some of Christie’s demise may have been due to the rise of Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law.  In 2005 as a U.S. District Attorney, Christie put Kushner’s father in jail for tax evasion and election fraud.  That is obviously hard to forget, and more than likely caused friction.  Upon winning the election, Trump dumped Christie and charged Pence with running the transition team.  Clinging on in the hope of landing Attorney General or some other Cabinet position, Christie hung around until it was clear he would not be involved in the new administration in any significant way.

Apparently New Jersey residents were not happy with the time Christie spent on the presidential race and in support of Trump.  In 2015, Christie spent all or part of 261 days (72% of the year) outside the state of New Jersey.  Probably due to being absent most of the year and “Bridgegate” proceedings resulting in convictions of two former aides, on December 6, 2016 Governor Christie’s approval rating sank to a record low of  19%.  This set the record for the lowest approval rating of any Governor in any state in the past 20 years.

Rudy Giuliani

Born 5/28/1944

Chairman, Geenberg Traurig law firm

Former US District Attorney and Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani has led a distinguished and sometimes controversial career.  A Democrat and then an Independent during the 1970’s, Giuliani became a Republican on December 8, 1980, one month after the election of Ronald Reagan.  This conversion opened doors in Washington, and in 1981 the Reagan administration named him as Associate Attorney General, the third highest position in the Justice Department.  In 1985 Giuliani indicted eleven reputed members of the Mafia “five familes” on RICO charges, all were found guilty resulting in hundreds of years of or prison.  Giuliani went on to prosecute Ivan Boesky and Michael Milken for insider trading, racketeering and fraud.  Both eventually served time.

During the high-profile cases, Giuliani often found himself in front of the cameras, and in 1989 he decided to run for Mayor of New York City.  His first attempt resulted in a loss, but it was the closest election in New York City history.  He ran again in 1993, this time beating David Dinkins and won again as encumbent in 1997.  Due to term limits, he was unable to run for Mayor again so in 2000 he entered the race for the US Senate, later withdrawing due to health reasons.  He presided over rescue and recover efforts during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, winning wide praise for his actions and ultimately being named Time Magazine’s 2001 “Person of the Year”, and was given honorary knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II.

Not all of Giuliani’s history is pristine.  In 2006 after being named to a Congressional panel on Iraq, Giuliani resigned under pressure after only two months because he missed every meeting. During the same time, he received $11.4 million dollars in speaking fees over 14 months.   During the same year, he formed an exploratory committee to assess his chances in the 2008 Presidential elections, declared his candidacy in early 2007 and withdrew in 2008 due to poor results.  Like Trump, Giuliani likes the spotlight, which sometimes gets him into trouble.  Some of Giuliani’s more famous and controversial statements include:

  • “We’ve had no domestic terrorist attacks under Bush” (apparently forgetting 9/11)
  • “Obama doesn’t love America, he doesn’t love you and he doesn’t love me”
  • Blacks commit murder eight times more per capita than any other group in our society.  If I had put all of my police officers on Park Avenue and none in Harlem, thousands and thousands of more blacks would have been killed during the eight years I was Mayor”
  • “The whole idea of profiling is perfectly legal and perfectly legitimate”
  • “Freedom is about authority.  Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority”
  • “We don’t all agree on everything.  I don’t agree with myself on everything”
  • “So when Trump first announced it he said ‘Muslim ban.’ Put a commission together, show me the right way to do it legally”

After the election, Giuliani made it very clear he was hoping to become Secretary of State.  Trump preferred Rex Tillerson, and like Chris Christie, Giuliani was left out of the inner circle after months of support.  He later claimed he was offered two different Cabinet positions, but neither the Trump team nor Giuliani would confirm which ones.  In the end, it may have been Giuliani’s love of being in front of the camera that was his undoing.  Like Trump, he loves the spotlight, and Trump probably doesn’t want it on anybody but himself.

Newt Gingrich

Born 6/17/1943

Professional Speaker, Author, Consultant

Another ardent Trump supporter who was eventually left out in the cold, Gingrich is considered extremely intelligent, and often confrontational.   Regardless of viewpoint, Gingrich’s life can be described as both extremely successful and one full of failures.  He is best known for his role as Speaker of the House, passing massive tax cuts, shutting down the government in 1996 (reportedly because he felt slighted for being asked to use the rear stairs on Air Force One), and his three marriages.  It has been reported that while his then wife Jackie was in the hospital recovering from tumor surgery, Newt had a heated argument with her in regards to how they were going to get divorced.   

One interesting tidbit about Newt is his moderate views on healthcare.  As we all know Democrats like Obamacare, Republicans hate it, and one thing Republicans seem to hate most is the individual mandate or requirement that everybody gets insurance.  As it turns out, the Republicans were originally the ones to push for the mandate, and one of the chief supporters was Newt Gingrich. Back in 1993, a large group of Republican Senators led by Bob Dole proposed a bill requiring individuals to buy insurance.  Gingrich held this position until at least 2009, which is when Democrats began to believe it was a good idea, so naturally Republicans did not.  Gingrich is also credited with co-authoring “The Contract with America” which aimed to shrink government and make it more transparent to the public.  Gingrich is a strong believer in better education, believing it is the number one factor in our future prosperity.  So while he is a staunch Republican, he has demonstrated the ability to look at issues independently.

However, on some topics Gingrich is no moderate, and Gingrich appears to share many of the same type of views as Trump, at least in regards to Muslims.  On July 14, 2016, he stated on Fox News that he believes Americans of Muslim background who believe in Sharia law should be deported, and that visiting websites that promote ISIS or Al-Qaeda should be a felony.

Smart, and able to make convincing arguments, Gingrich was probably a bit too smart and open to be in the Trump inner circle.  In June, Gingrich called Trump’s comments about Federal Judge Curiel “inexcusable”, and that it was one of Trump’s worst mistakes.  After the election when Trump was picking his cabinet, Gingrich again went public by stating to USA Today that Trump shouldn’t be tweeting about election fraud.  Was this public criticism of Trump Tweets the reason Gingrich is no longer around?  Only Trump himself can answer that question for sure, but Trumps has shown he doesn’t like negative press.
