In this edition’s Back Story, Newsweek’s Matt Cooper poses a question for President-elect Trump.
“What do you do for Chris Christie? Even with a Republican majority in Congress, Trump might have a hard time nominating the bridge-afflicted governor to a post such as attorney general,” said Cooper. “Democrats would surely balk. Trump could make Christie his chief of staff but that job is usually reserved for (and best filled by) a Washington insider. Maybe counselor to the president. As head of the presidential transition, that probably gives the 53-year-old a head start on whatever he wants.”
