Trump was speaking at a high school gym in Windham when he said, "Christie, he’s eating right now," and "He can’t be bothered.
That's when a man in the crowd shouted out to prod Trump.

“Sir, please do not call him a fat pig. I’m trying to be nice. Don’t call him a fat pig," Trump said. "You can’t do that.”

Christie, who pulled into a tie for second place in the state with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in a New Hampshire Journal poll released Tuesday, has been a sharp critic of Trump.

In a full-page ad in the Union Leader newspaper Tuesday, a super PAC supporting Christie accused Trump of being "afraid to debate" because he has not committed to compete in the first GOP debate in Milwaukee this month.

Christie aides did not reply to a request for comment about Trump's remarks. Christie was due to campaign in the state Tuesday and Wednesday.
