Donald Trump picks New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to lead transition team
Gov. Chris Christie will wield considerable influence if Donald Trump gets elected president.
Trump on Monday picked Christie to lead the transition team that will usher in a Trump administration if he wins the White House.
It’s a plum post for the Republican governor who endorsed Trump back in February when Christie suspended his campaign for president. Since then, Christie has been a key adviser behind the scenes.
Trump says in a statement that Christie is “an extremely knowledgeable and loyal person with the tools and resources to put together an unparalleled transition team.”
