New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) in a recent interview said he has a positive relationship with President Trump, even though Trump sometimes “yells at him.”

“He gets mad at me at times, he yells at me at times, but he respects me,” Christie told GQ

{mosads}Christie told the reporter that he will shout back at Trump, but engages in this behavior “less now that he’s president.”

Christie was an early supporter of Trump, endorsing him in early 2016 shortly after he ended his own presidential bid.

The New Jersey governor, who leaves office in January, also briefly helmed Trump’s transition team.

Christie has long been rumored as a potential candidate for Trump administration positions. He is now chairing a council that Trump formed to deal with opioid abuse.
