Donald Trump is known for #trumping contractors USA link taking goods and service and never paying or paying pennies on the dollar with the end result of putting some of those suckers out of business.
Christie was done in politics, two of his gubernatorial aids were convicted and had agreed to testify against him. Trump was his life boat, if Trump wins Christie is still in business or so we and evidently Christie thought.
How was Christie #Trumped after taking a beating from Trump, he joined the Trump team as a surrogate his role grew and became the head of the transition team. Having spent all of his capital on the campaign, being of little to no more use to Trump, Within 72 hours of victory Christie was #Trumped, put out like one night stand at 4AM, rejected like a wet food stamp, wrapped up like a tampon in the middle of the night (I know the original line but this fits my point).
Christie knew I assume that he was dealing with a snake, but he chose to put his hand in the jar with the snake. The snake bit him end of story His support of Trump and the scandal in New Jersey alienated his supports. Having no ability to help or hurt hew was the first to be officially #trumped
