Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a known ally of President Trump, has advised him to give up on challenging the results of the 2020 election.

Forbes said Christie tagged the legal battles as “outrageous” and “wrong.”

Christe told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday morning’s “This Week,” that it was time for the president to give up contesting the election.

“The president had an opportunity to access the courts,” said Christie, adding that Trump’s legal team repeatedly has failed to produce evidence, calling the result “a national embarrassment.”

Christie singled out attacks by Trump’s lawyer Sidney Powell on Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

Christine noted, “This is outrageous conduct by any lawyer and notice … they won’t do it inside the courtroom.”

“Look I’ve been a supporter of the president. I voted for him twice,” Christie told ABC, “but elections have consequences, and we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn’t happen here.”
