According to an exclusive in the New York Post, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is telling his friends and staff that he is taking a job with the Trump administration in the White House.
The former GOP presidential candidate’s position has not been determined, but he would not replace Reince Preibus as the president’s chief-of-staff.
“Trump told him to be patient,” the source said. “Christie will only take something where he is answerable to the president.”
Trump told The Wall Street Journal last month “at some point, we’re going to do something with Chris.” But the White House said it has not offered Christie a position.
Christie spokesman Brian Murray said it was “absolutely untrue” he told staff he would take a role.
“The governor dismissed this type of speculation this past week and said he plans to finish out his term as governor,” he said.
UPDATE: The White House denies that Christie will be taking a role in Trump’s administration. Of course, we know the WH isn’t always honest, so time will tell.
