    Meg Whitman, the CEO of Hewlett-Packard who served as National Finance Co-Chair for Gov. Chris Christie's now-suspended presidential campaign, called his endorsement of Trump, "an astonishing display of political opportunism," NBC News reported.

    "Trump would take America on a dangerous journey. Christie knows all that and indicated as much many times publicly," Whitman wrote in a statement.

    Whitman joins a chorus of conservative commentators who have called Christie's move "irresponsible" and a "disgrace."

    "The Governor is mistaken if he believes he can now count on my support, and I call on Christie's donors and supporters to reject the Governor and Donald Trump outright," she added.
