New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he warned President Donald Trump about Mike Flynn, the Washington Post reports.

"I didn't think that he was someone who would bring benefit to the president or to the administration," Christie said during a press conference Monday in Trenton, N.J. "And I made that very clear to candidate Trump, and I made it very clear to President-elect Trump. That was my opinion, my view."

Flynn is currently being investigated by the FBI for potential collusion with Russia during the presidential campaign. He was President Donald Trump's national security adviser before being fired in February for misleading Vice President Mike Pence and other administration officials about the nature of his discussions with the Russian ambassador.

"If I were president-elect of the United States, I wouldn't let General Flynn in the White House, let alone give him a job," said Christie, who, in part, helped oversee Trump's transition into the White House.

Christie said he wouldn't get into specifics on why he had concerns over Flynn but mentioned that he was "not my cup of tea" and that the two "didn't see eye to eye."

He added: "Some of it involves classified information that I'm just not at liberty to discuss."
