In a surprising move, Governor of the US state of New Jersey Chris Christie has endorsed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Making his announcement on Friday, Christie singled out Trump as the strongest candidate in the Republican race.

"I've been on that stage. I've gotten to know all the people on that stage. And there is no one better prepared to provide America with the strong leadership that it needs both at home and around the world than Donald Trump."

Christie was also in the running for the Republican nomination. He suspended his campaign after a poor showing in the New Hampshire primary.

Christie's endorsement was so far the most influential for Trump. It also threatens Republican party establishment favorite Marco Rubio.

Rubio unleashed a barrage of attacks on Trump during Thursday's Republican debate, targeting the latter's character, business ethnics and political credentials.

Christie's endorsement came days before Super Tuesday on March 1, when 11 US states will hold their primaries or caucuses.
