The Trump Veep rumor mill has been busy again this weekend, and the Man-of-the-Hour this time is retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn. General Flynn formerly ran the Defense Intelligence Agency.
This is quite an interesting turn of events. First of all, Flynn is a registered Democrat. Furthermore, back in November, Trump boasted that he knew more about ISIS than US Generals.
Now Trump is singing a different tune. “I like the generals. I like the concept of the generals. We’re thinking about — actually there are two of them that are under consideration,” he said last Wednesday on FoxNews. And, according to insiders who spoke with the Washington Post on the condition of anonymity, the turn to consider a military figure was spearheaded by Trump himself. (The other general Trump was considering, retired General Jack Keane, told the Post that he was not interested in becoming VP.)
