PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Dec. 1 (UPI) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told reporters at a campaign stop Monday that no one celebrated the 9/11 attacks in New Jersey in 2001, and no one has since.

Christie told ABC News last week that he didn’t remember whether or not people celebrated the 9/11 attacks in Jersey City. His position firmed up since, and he denied accusations that he was trying to “hedge.” He reminded reporters that on the day of the attacks, he was trying to determine whether his wife and brother were safe. They were both in lower Manhattan at the time of the attacks.

Christie also told CNN: “Everybody else can figure out what they think is outrageous or not outrageous — in the context of Donald, outrageous is a high bar.”

Trump responded swiftly Monday evening telling ABC News Christie should be “careful with what he says.”
