Trump may select recently retired Army General as running mate

Lieutenant General (RET) Michael Flynn

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may be selecting a decorated Army General for his Vice President.

According to the New York Post, Lieutenant General (RET) Michael Flynn is being considered for a Vice Presidential position if the Trump campaign secures victory in the fall.

A  former flag officer with over 33 years of intelligence experience and a vocal critic of the Obama Administration,the controversial Iraq and Afghanistan veteran may end up reporting for duty at the White House if he can bolster Trump’s weak national security and foreign affairs background.

Reportedly forced out of his former job as Defense Intelligence Agency director for arguing with Obama advisers on a range of policy issues, the 57-year-old Flynn has proven a controversial officer, even going so far as to demand Clinton suspend her campaign while justice officials review possible misconduct and mishandling of classified information during her time with the Obama Administration.

A critic of what he feels to be the deterioration of US military readiness, Flynn is set to publish a book this summer titled The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies,citing intent to “inform the American people of the grave danger we face in the war on terror … until our government takes decisive action against the terrorists that want nothing more than to destroy us and our way of life.”

Other possible Vice Presidential candidates are Republican Tennessee Senator Bob Corker and Republican Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions.
