Most of the details about the discussions between President Donald Trump and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie during Christie’s White House visit on Tuesday remain vague.
But we do now know what the two had for lunch, and according to Christie, he didn’t have any power or influence in making that decision.
As a guest host on the New York sports talk radio "Boomer & Carton Show" on WFAN-660 AM on Thursday, Christie shared a few details about his sit-down with the president.
‘‘This is what it’s like to be with Trump,’’ Christie said on the radio show, as transcribed by The Associated Press. ‘‘He says, ‘There’s the menu; you guys order whatever you want.’ And then he says, ‘Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf.’’’
To be fair, show host Craig Carton specifically asked Christie about the lunch while on the air, saying, “Most people want to know what you talked about; I want to know what you ate."
The Republican governor also shared that he and Trump discussed the nation’s opioid epidemic and added that there was no discussion on the possibility of a White House gig. Christie's term as governor of the Garden State expires next year.
