BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump says New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is “a very talented man.” But he is not saying if there is a place for him in his administration.
Christie was one of a parade of officials visiting Trump Sunday at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club. Christie, a former candidate for president, was an early backer of Trump. But he was recently demoted as head of Trump’s transition effort. It is now not clear how big a role Christie is now playing or whether Christie is being considered for any job in the administration.
His diminished role came after two former aides were convicted in the George Washington Bridge political revenge plot. Christie denies wrongdoing and wasn’t charged in the 2013 scandal.
Christie recently said he plans to finish his term, which ends in 2018.
