Chris Christie, former Governor of New Jersey, expressed on “The View” that Confederate President Jefferson Davis showed “class” by not attempting to run for office again, unlike former President Trump.

When discussing Trump’s potential conviction, Christie suggested trying and convicting him in Washington, D.C. and sending him to jail.

The conversation touched upon the 14th Amendment and the idea that Trump should be held accountable by the Constitution. (Trending: Fauci’s Ex-Boss Admits The Truth About COVID)

Christie expressed concern that preventing Trump from running may lead to further conflict in the country.

“I mean, you’ve seen what the lengths that the people have gone through to make sure his feet don’t touch the ground. Do you think that letting him get away with being an insurrectionist is the right way for us to let the country know how we — what are going to do it next time we get another one?” Whoopi Goldberg asked.

“I think they should try him and convict him in Washington, D.C. and send him to jail for it. And I think that’s the way to do it,” Christie said.

“Jefferson Davis wasn’t convicted,” Sunny Hostin said.

“Did he break the law, though? Did he do what he, what he’s been accused?” Goldberg jumped in.

“I think he’s going to be convicted of it,” Christie said.

“No, no, that’s not what, that’s not my question,” Goldberg shot back.

“She’s talking about the 14th, section 3 of the 14th Amendment —” Hostin said.

“I know what she’s talking about,” Christie cut in.

“Jefferson Davis wasn’t convicted,” Hostin said.

“I understand but Jefferson Da —” Christie began.

“He wasn’t allowed to hold office again,” Hostin said.

“But he never tried to again. OK. So we never tested that, Sunny, right? It was never tested,” Christie said.

“There was precedent,” Hostin pressed.

“It was never tested because Jefferson Davis, if I you imagine saying this, the president of the Confederacy had some class. And decided never to run for office in the United States again,” Christie said.

“At least more than Trump!” Alyssa Farah Griffin jumped in.

“That’s the point, right? Well, this has never been tested —” Christie said.

“The point is the Constitution, and there is a Constitution and there’s precedent. He needs to be taken out by the Constitution!” Hostin said.

“I understand. I understand that —” Christie said.

“The law applies to him like it applies to every single person,” Hostin pressed.

“It absolutely should,” Christie agreed.

“But the question I was asked was why I said what I said. And I, and I’m trying to be practical about this, Sunny. If, in fact, we take him off the ballot and he doesn’t have a chance to run, I think it’s going to cause conflict in this country well beyond what we have now.”
