President-elect Donald Trump has offered the job of national security adviser to retired General Michael Flynn, reports the New York Times.
Flynn is a life long Democrat voter. He switched to Republican and Trump for the first time in the November elections, underlining that Trump really is the leader of a popular movement against corrupt banks, corporations and politicians that cuts across party lines.
A top military intelligence officer, Flynn was fired in 2014 for his criticism of the country’s counter-terrorism policies.
As the national security advisor, Flynn have the last word on how the Trump administration reponds to crisis such as an international Ebola epidemic or a showdown with China over the China Sea, says the New York Times.
