Donald J. Trump has announced that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will serve as his Transition Team Chairman. As the presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican Party, Trump is taking steps to gear up for the general election against the Democratic nominee.
“Governor Christie is an extremely knowledgeable and loyal person with the tools and resources to put together an unparalleled Transition Team, one that will be prepared to take over the White House when we win in November. I am grateful to Governor Christie for his contributions to this movement,” Trump said.
As Transition Team Chairman, Governor Christie will oversee a team of professionals planning to take over the White House, and all that entails, should Trump win the general election in November.
“I am honored by the confidence being placed in me by Mr. Trump and look forward to putting together a first rate team to assemble an administration to help best serve the President-elect and the nation,” Governor Christie said.
According to his campaign, Trump has begun shifting towards a general election strategy and implementing an infrastructure capable of securing a victory, including making key hires, building a finance operation to benefit the Republican Party and unifying the party by working with several Republican leaders now voicing their support for Trump and his candidacy.Related Articles:
