Christie: ‘We Are in the Midst of the Next World War’

Thursday at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s presidential forum, while referencing the mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA that killed 14 people, Republican presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) declared we are “in the midst of the next world war.”

Christie said,  “Let me tell you as a former prosecutor, from the time I began to watch the events unfold last night, I am convinced that was a terrorist attack. And the president continues to wring his hands and say, ‘we’ll see,’ but those folks dressed in tactical gear, with semiautomatic weapons, came there to do something. And let’s remember something, everybody. If a center for the developmentally disabled in San Bernardino, CA can be a target for a terrorist attack, then everyplace in America, is a target for a terrorist attack. We need to come to grips with the idea that we are in the midst of the next world war.”
