Chris Christie of New Jersey, who was Trump’s transition director before Trump ousted him 10 weeks ago.
"A Trump Administration, With Obama Staff Members Filling In the Gaps" is from the January 19, 2017 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush and narrated by Caroline Miller.
