Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says it's time for President Trump to wave the white flag and accept the presidential election results.

During Sunday's edition of ABC's This Week, Christie told host George Stephanopoulos that Trump's campaign has had enough time to present evidence of voter fraud, but they have failed to do so. He said the legal challenge has turned into a "national embarrassment," singling out Sidney Powell for accusing Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) of a crime and then refusing to back it up with evidence.

Christie noted that he has supported Trump throughout his presidency and voted for him both this year and in 2016, but said "we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn't happen."
