Donald Trump Tells Chris Christie: ‘No More Oreos!’ (VIDEO)

During a fundraiser to help New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) retire his campaign debt on Thursday night, Donald Trump told the governor that he was banned from eating Oreos.

While discussing trade, Trump referenced Oreos, which Trump swore off in August when Oreo’s parent company added production plants in Mexico and downsized operations in Chicago.

“I’m not eating Oreos anymore, you know that — but neither is Chris,” Trump said at the event in New Jersey on Thursday. “You’re not eating Oreos anymore. No more Oreos. For either of us, Chris. Don’t feel bad.”

Earlier in the event, Trump claimed that Christie “paid off his entire campaign debt” that night before joking about attendees not having a place to sit.

“And Chris, you can’t even give him a table and a seat? That’s terrible,” Trump said, according to the Associated Press.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
