Former New Jersey Governor and 2016 presidential candidate Chris Christie is hoping his new memoir, “Let Me Finish,” gives readers a clear understanding of his commitment to direct, unfiltered, and truthful leadership in American politics.

“That’s really been the guiding principle throughout my career,” he told WIBC hosts The Chicks on the Right in an exclusive interview, Tuesday.

Christie made headlines in early 2016 when he dropped out of the presidential race and subsequently became the first major Republican to endorse Donald Trump.

Soon after, he found himself leading then-candidate Trump’s transition team.

In his book, Christie says by the time Trump won the election in November, he and about 140 other staff members had compiled some 30 binders filled with shortlists for various positions and strategies for legislative undertakings. Days after the election, however, Christie was booted from the team.

While the former Governor told Mock and Daisy his memoir is no ‘tell-all,’ Christie doesn’t hold back on his criticism of political adversaries and key figures in the Trump administration with whom he didn’t mesh.
