Murphy to Christie: Denounce Trump’s Attack on Gold Star Mother

Newark — After a weekend of shameful silence even as other Republicans have spoken out, Phil Murphy, Democratic candidate for governor, said today Governor Christie must denounce Donald Trump’s ignorant and disrespectful comments disparaging the mother of fallen soldier Capt. Humayun Khan.

Over the weekend, Donald Trump drew fire from across the political spectrum for his comments to ABC News’ George Stephanopolous deriding the mother of Capt. Kahn.
Murphy noted that Christie had campaigned with Natalie Healy, a Gold Star Mother from New Hampshire, during his own bid for president.

“This is a time to choose country over party for Chris Christie. The choice is stark but simple: denounce Donald Trump’s repugnant attack on a woman who paid a sacrifice no mother should ever have to bear or continue his pathological enabling of a sociopath who has no morals, no conscience, and no character.”
