TRENTON – Gov. Chris Christie spoke with President Barack Obama in Washington Thursday, but details of their conversation will be left between the two men, he said.
The governor told reporters Friday he would not divulge details of his conversation with the commander in chief, saying it would be inappropriate for him to discuss such information.
“Obviously we talked about hurricane relief,” said Christie, adding, “but [I] won’t talk about the specifics.”
When pressed to divulge the tenure of their discussions, Christie again declined. The governor argued it would counterproductive for future conversations to disclose details of private talks.
“I think it’d be wrong for me to give any insight into that,” Christie said. “The president and I have spoken to each other candidly and honestly.”

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
