Chris Christie: No One Cares What Steve Bannon Has to Say

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie insisted Monday that he was offered Cabinet positions in the Trump White House, contrary to claims made by former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon. In an interview with 60 Minutes, Bannon said Christie was ruled out for the Cabinet after he failed to support Trump after the release of a video of Trump bragging about grabbing women without their consent. In an interview Monday night with PBS NewsHour, Christie accused Bannon of lying. “I was offered Cabinet positions by this president. It was widely reported,” Christie said, hitting back on claims that Bannon chronicled slights against Trump in a little black book. “I suspect that this ‘little black book’ that Mr. Bannon is talking about, the only one who read that black book was Mr. Bannon himself,” Christie said. “I know that no one else cares about it, and now that he’s been fired, no one is going to really care about anything else Steve Bannon has to say.”
