Trump considering Christie, Meadows, for chief of staff: sources

U.S. President Donald Trump is looking at four potential candidates to fill the role of White House chief of staff.

Sources tell Reuters the candidates include former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, one of Trump's earliest supporters for president.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE, SAYING (FEB.

26.

2016): "I am proud to be here to endorse Donald Trump for president of the United States." It's not the first time Trump flirted with the idea of offering Christie a job in the administration.

His name was first floated for attorney general.

But that went to Jeff Sessions.

IT WAS THEN floated again when Sessions resigned last month, the former governor visited the White House that same week.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING (NOV.

9): "I did not see Chris Christie yesterday, I heard he was in the White House.

He's a friend of mine, he's a good man." But the president tapping Andrew Barr instead.

Christie last year appeared to gripe about the fact that he was pushed aside in his role running the president's transition team.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE, SAYING (DEC.

6, 2017): "Experience matters.

The president's campaign was built on being an outsider who's going to come into Washington and change things.

That's fine.

I'm OK with that.

But you cannot run a transition as an outsider." Whether he'll become a White House insider remains to be seen.

The administration may not want the man blamed for the 2015 Bridgegate scandal overseeing Oval Office traffic.

And Christie may find his ramp to the White House closed.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. REPUBLICAN REPRESENTATIVE MARK MEADOWS, SAYING: "I'm honored to be considered." Other candidates for chief of staff include hard-line conservative Congressman Mark Meadows.

Sources say the president is also considering former campaign adviser David Bossie and U.S. Trade Representative David Lighthizer for the position.

Trump is expected to announce his choice by the end of the year.

The next chief of staff will be the third person to hold the job since Trump took office in 2017.
