Chris Christie: Don't Expect Trump Birther Apology

Thursday, 10 Nov 2016 07:56 AM

Don't expect Donald Trump to apologize for his "birther" campaign when he meets with President Barack Obama at the White House.

That's according to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has been overseeing the transition for Trump. The president-elect and Obama are meeting later Thursday. Christie was asked on NBC's "Today," whether Trump would apologize for his repeated comments casting doubts on whether Obama was born in the United States.

Christie said "I think that's all past us." He noted that Obama has made barbed remarks about Trump. He said: "That's politics though."

Asked if Trump's birther comments were "just politics," Christie said "everything is in the context of politics" — though that doesn't mean Trump didn't believe what he was saying.

Obama was born in Hawaii.

Christie also says he and Trump "have not talked about anything" related to a potential Cabinet appointment for him.

"The president-elect was absolutely adamant about not discussing the transition before he was elected," Christie said.
