New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says in an interview that President Donald Trump "yells at me at times, but he respects me."

The termed-out governor also told GQ that he has no intention of running for political office again.

Christie made the comments in an extensive interview with GQ, adding that he used to yell at Trump just as much, "less now that he's president."

"He gets mad at me at times, he yells at me at times, but he respects me," Christie told GQ.

Christie and Trump have known each other since 2002, but their relationship encountered turbulence once Trump became the Republican nominee. Christie's name was bandied about for running mate before the election and attorney general afterward.

Then he was fired from heading up Trump's transition team, leading to speculation that Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, had derailed Christie's candidacy in the Trump administration for prosecuting and convicting his father, Charles, in 2004 when Christie was a federal prosecutor.

"There's a lot of history there, not between me and him but between me and his father, and Jared has continued to tell me that he holds no grudge against me, so I have to take him at his word," Christie told GQ.

"When you're as prominent a person as I've been, there's more than one person shooting at you all the time. So unless you see it, you don't necessarily know which bullet hit you," Christie told GQ.

Christie also says that when his second term as governor is over in January, that's it for political office.

"I don't see myself running for office again, because I've had the one job that I really wanted, that's governor, and I ran for the other job that I really wanted, which was president," Christie told GQ.
