Chris Christie on Free Trade
The pillars of the Christie worldview, as gleaned from about a dozen speeches and public appearances, tend to rise from a simple observation: A high-functioning America at home, liberated from partisan dysfunction, exerts greater influence abroad. "What we say and what we do here at home affects how others see us and in turn affects what it is they say and do," Christie said in 2011.
Christie's Middle East trip will start in Israel on Sunday with a stay until Thursday. That leg of the trip is being called the "Jersey to Jerusalem Trade Mission: Economic Growth, Diplomacy, Observance." From there, the Governor and his family visit the country of Jordan from Thursday until Easter Sunday.
In addition to family members, the Governor is being accompanied by staff and a delegation of representatives from New Jersey's business and Jewish communities. The goal, according to a release from the Governor's Office, is to strengthen the state's economic and diplomatic relationships with other nations.
