President Donald Trump on Thursday met with former New Jersey governor Chris Christie and now considers him a top contender for the job of White House chief of staff. Trump said that afternoon that he had narrowed the list of candidates to five. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney were said to be on it. The president has also been encouraged by some of his advisers urged him to consider his son-in-law Jared Kushner for the job, sources told Reuters — an idea Trump’s spokeswoman appeared to pour cold water on.
Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and outgoing chief John Kelly seemed to enjoy the absolute frenzy that the job opening has created as they attended a reception for Republican National Committee members. The pair posted a photo of themselves grinning, Kelly with his arm slung around his predecessor’s shoulders, at the holiday party hosted by the president and first lady at the White House.
