Chris Christie is a top contender for the White House chief of staff job, according to a new report.

President Trump met with the former New Jersey governor Thursday as he weighs who will replace John Kelly, Axios reported.

“He’s tough; he’s an attorney; he’s politically-savvy, and one of Trump’s early supporters,” a source familiar with Trump’s thinking told the news outlet.

Trump told reporters Thursday he had five people he was considering for Kelly’s replacement. Kelly is expected to depart at the end of the year after 18 months in the role.

The Latest: Trump considering 4 to be next chief of staff

The Latest: Trump considering 4 to be next chief of staff President Donald Trump is considering four people as he determines who will be his next chief of staff. A person familiar with Trump's thinking tells The Associated Press that the director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, is among those under consideration to replace John Kelly. The person thought to be the president's top choice for the job, vice presidential chief of staff Nick Ayers, tweeted Sunday that he's no longer in the running for the position. Instead, he will begin overseeing a pro-Trump political action committee next year. A White House official tells the AP that Trump and Ayers could not reach agreement on Ayers' length of service.

The Huffington Post reported the president’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner was also in the running. Other news outlets reported that Kushner is not under consideration.

Christie and Kushner have had a fraught relationship. Christie, who was previously U.S. attorney for New Jersey, sent Kushner’s father, Charles, to federal prison in 2005 for tax evasion, witness tampering, and making illegal campaign donations.

Chris Christie compares President Trump to '72-year-old relative' who refuses to change his mind.
President Trump is a stubborn grandpa. That's what former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said on Sunday during an interview with ABC's "This Week." Christie, a former Trump advisor, likened the President to a "72-year-old relative" who refuses to change his or her ways. “When people get older, they become more and more convinced of the fact that what they’re doing is the right thing and it becomes harder to convince them otherwise," Christie told ABC News. Christie made the comments while discussing incoming White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and the challenges he faces working for Trump.
