“Of course, you’re disappointed,” he said on NBC’s “Today” show. “If you compete for something, you like to be picked.”

Christie also dismissed reports of friction with Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law.
“I’ve never had any conflict with Jared inside the campaign,” he said.
Christie also predicted that plagiarism accusations centered around Melania Trump’s speech on the first night of the Republican National Convention, portions of which bear similarities to one given by first lady Michelle Obama in 2008, will blow over quickly.
“The worst day of the convention is the first day,” Christie said.
“After tonight, we won’t be talking about this.”
He added that he couldn’t make the case for plagiarism “when 93 percent of the speech is completely different than Michelle Obama’s speech.”
“They expressed some common thoughts,” he added.
