— -- Chris Christie said that he'll be more trusted by the King Hussein of Jordan than President Obama in his strategy to defeat ISIS.

Only problem is that Hussein has been dead since 1999.

“When I stand across from King Hussein of Jordan, I say to him you have a friend sir who will stand with you to fight this fight,” Christie said during Tuesday's Republican primary debate, making the case that the president is not trusted by the leaders of Jordan and Saudi Arabia because of the nuclear deal with Iran.

King Abdullah II is the current, living king of Jordan.
