New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will serve as a senior adviser for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

CNN reports that Christie plans to “walk through policy disagreements with him.”

Christie and Trump have much to sync up on since the New Jersey Republican endorsed the New York businessman on Friday. “I will lend my support between now and November in any way for Donald,” Christie told reporters during his endorsement announcement.

Christie dismissed Trumps comments about Muslims in New Jersey celebrating after the 9/11 attacks.

Christie also called Trump’s ban on Muslim immigration into the U.S. “ridiculous”

Trump, however,  took shots at Christie last December over policy differences regarding Social Security.

“Governor Christie wants to raise the age so that you have to wait another, you know, pretty extended period of time. It’s not fair. You’ve been paying in for years,” Trump told seniors in Virginia.
