New Jersey governor Chris Christie’s office denied a report that claimed that Christie has been saying to his friends and staff that he is planning to take a post in President Donald Trump’s administration.

Commenting on the report, published by New York Post Saturday night, Christie strategist Mike DuHaime said that the information is “absolutely not true,” according to Politico. The Post story, which cited a single anonymous source described as “close to the White House,” also issued a denial by Christie spokesman Brian Murray, who said: “The governor dismissed this type of speculation this past week and said he plans to finish out his term as governor.”

The Post report asserts that Trump has asked Christie to be “patient,” while clarifying that no job offer has been worked out yet. “Christie will only take something where he is answerable to the president,” the source told the Post.

Although Christie is yet to publicly rule out a job in the Trump administration, he has said that he plans to serve as the governor to finish his second term and has also indicated interest in taking up a private sector job in the future, according to Politico.

The New York Post also cited a Wall Street Journal report that quoted Trump as saying: “at some point, we’re going to do something with Chris.” Reports speculating Christie receiving a job offer also flared up last week when it was revealed that Christie met the President for a White House lunch on Valentine’s day.

Describing an incident on the “Boomer and Carton” sports radio show that occurred during the Valentine’s day lunch, Christie said that the president forced him to eat meatloaf.

“This is what it’s like to be with Trump: He says, ‘There’s the menu, you guys order whatever you want,’” Christie said, according to audio posted online. “And then he says, ‘Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf.’’’

The incident, which adds into the list of allegedly humiliating episodes faced by Christie, who was one of Trump’s first political backers when he announced his presidential campaign bid. Christie also reportedly snubbed some jobs offered to him after he was demoted as chair of the transition team.

A similar story in the New Yorker in June 2016, which was denied by Christie’s office, said that Trump once sent Christie on an errand to pick up Big Macs from McDonald’s. Prior to that, in May, Trump also mocked Christie, who at the time was on stage with him, by saying: “You’re not eating Oreos anymore. No more Oreos. For either of us, Chris. Don’t feel bad.”
