CHRIS CHRISTIE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE/WHITE HOUSE STAFF: “Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie sees the Trump White House as a rogues’ gallery of flawed people sidetracking the work of the U.S. president, according to excerpts of his forthcoming memoir posted on the news site Axios on Wednesday [1-16-19]. President Donald Trump employs a ‘revolving door of deeply flawed individuals — amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons — who were hustled into jobs they were never suited for, sometimes seemingly without so much as a background check via Google or Wikipedia,’ Christie, who was a senior adviser to Trump’s 2016 campaign, says in his memoir, ‘Let Me Finish,’ which is due to be released on Jan. 29. Christie had sought the Republican presidential nomination himself in 2016 before becoming a diligent supporter and surrogate for Trump, but his work with the administration has been limited and he recently withdrew his name from consideration for Trump’s chief of staff.”
