Trump said Muslims in Jersey City cheered the 9-11 attacks.

When asked about it Christie said he didn't recall that happening, but said it was harrowing time and there may be things he forgot.

Many think Christie is avoiding direct criticisms of Trump in the hopes he will drop out of the race and his supporters will come to him.
