Christie also maintained that the Trump campaign didn't actively collude with Russian Federation but instead was "just trying to figure out how to get field people hired in places like Pennsylvania, let alone run some sort of Tom Clancy operation".
Christie wrote that Trump initially denied using the kind of language heard on the tape, but that once they played the audio, Trump said, "It's me", and that it was one of the only times he had seen Trump embarrassed, the Times said.
To this, Christie reasoned his "change of heart" occurred because he knew Trump was "going to win" the election.
They discussed how Christie describes being closer to Trump than anyone else not in the Trump family. Trump also "hires on impulse", like the time he "offered secretary of state to Rex Tillerson the first time he met him", Christie continued. Lastly, Christie says it is unlikely he will be joining President Trump's administration in the future, but that the president needs to get better people around him, and to delegate more authority to people to help him.

He came back from the commercial break curious about why Christie remains loyal to President Trump and questioned who exactly is a Chris Christie supporter. "And Jared said to me, 'You're insane.' And I said, 'No, I'm not insane".
"Jared then began to tell him why - and the why was because I had been, in his words, unfair to his father and therefore untrustworthy and that the crimes that his father was accused of were, as Jared put it at the time, family matters that should have been dealt with by the family or by the rabbis..."
