Trump to Christie: Fire former Romney strategist

“I think he did a terrible job for Mitt Romney, absolutely terrible,” Trump said on Fox News Tuesday night. “That was a campaign that should have been won. I don’t know Stuart Stevens from a hole in the wall. I don’t know what he looks like. But I will say this, whoever ran that campaign, that is not the person I would want running my campaign if I were running.”

The media mogul tweeted at Stuart earlier Tuesday, calling him a “disaster.”

Trump cautioned Tuesday night that Christie, who has been working with Stuart on ads for his gubernatorial reelection campaign, should steer clear of the Romney campaign team.

Christie is widely seen as a potential candidate for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016.

“I think probably based on everything I’ve read and heard, [Christie] is going to use a similar group that Mitt used,” Trump said. “And of course, Chris is a lot different than Mitt. I think using Stuart Stevens and the group of people that so badly, I mean, so badly ran Mitt Romney’s campaign, I think it’s a disaster for Chris.”
