New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said on Monday that if it were up to him, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn never would have had a White House job.
“I think it’s safe to say that General Flynn and I didn’t see eye-to eye,” Christie told reporters at a news conference in Trenton, New Jersey. “I didn’t think that he was someone who would bring benefit to the President or to the administration, and I made that very clear to candidate Trump, and I made it very clear to President-elect Trump.”
Christie also reiterated a comment he has made in the past about who’s to blame for the controversy surrounding the administration.
“I think the President could be better served than he’s been served,” Christie said. “I think that that leads to a lot of the confusion and a lot of the tumult, and I think there’s a breathless kind of press coverage of this administration like none I’ve ever seen before, and I think there’s also the President’s own approach on social media, etc., that tend to make it more difficult to have a coordinated approach to public communication.” Read more at CNN.
