In a surprise move on Friday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) endorsed Donald Trump for president.

Christie, a former rival of Trump's for the GOP nomination, appeared with Trump at a press conference in Fort Worth, Texas, and said he was best equipped to defeat Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

"There is no one who is better prepared to provide America with the strong leadership it needs than Donald Trump," Christie said to stunned silence. "He'll provide strong unequivocal leadership [and] create jobs for this country."

"Trump is rewriting the playbook of American politics," Christie added, saying he's prepared to do everything he can to help Trump win in November.
