Change is sweeping over Washington DC as the reality of a Trump administration is hitting home. Amid all the long faces and whiny social media posts, the democrats now realize real change is about to come to DC.
President Obama can’t be happy with Trump’s pick for National Security Adviser Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
Flynn and Obama have a rocky history. Flynn was the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) between 2012 and 2014, where he ran afoul of Obama’s non existent policy on ISIS.
Flynn wanted a more aggressive approach to combat ISIS and the Obama administration wanted to continue their policy of appeasement.
That didn’t sit well with the General, so he broke ranks and was swiftly fired by Obama.
Trump Picks Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn For National Security Adviser
This pick does not require Senate confirmation so the democrats cannot block it.
Flynn is a strong supporter of finally getting tough with radical Islam, and was a vocal critic of Obama’s failed policies in the region.
Flynn hated the Iran deal and has called for a renegotiation. He wants to work with Turkey to help fight the ISIS. He believes, as do most Americans, that we should work with Russia not against them.
Trump announced the appointment with this statement,
“I am pleased that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn will be by my side as we work to defeat radical Islamic terrorism, navigate geopolitical challenges and keep Americans safe at home and abroad.”
Looks like Trump picked the right guy for this critical post, don’t you agree?
