President Donald Trump met with former New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday evening and considers him a top contender to replace outgoing John Kelly as White House chief of staff, Axios reported.

Citing an unnamed source, the news outlet reported Christie's attributes for the job are "he's tough, he's an attorney, he's politically savvy, and one of Trump's early supporters."

But what might work against him is the former governor is not used to playing second-fiddle — and he's not a friend of the Kushners, Axios reported, noting, as U.S. attorney for New Jersey, Christie sent Jared Kushner's father to prison.
