With the Republican National Convention just over a week away, Donald Trump is coming closer and closer to announcing his running mate. Now, a bombshell has leaked about Trump’s top choice for Vice President that is sure to make you love him even more.
We NEED a man like Trump in the White House!
In the past, Trump has emphasized how he wants someone with political experience. Just two days ago, Trump had his VP list down to three:
- Indiana Governor Mike Pence.
- Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
- And New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
However, a new report that Trump is now seeking a military veteran would signal a big shift in his campaign.
The veteran Trump might choose as his running mate, retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn:
The Washington Post reported that:
Donald Trump is increasingly intrigued by the idea of tapping retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn in order to project strength and know-how on national security, according to four people familiar with the vetting process.
The persons, who spoke with The Washington Post on Saturday, requested anonymity to discuss their private conversations in recent days with Trump’s confidants and campaign aides.
The turn toward a military figure is being driven by Trump himself rather than by his advisers, the people said, and comes as the real estate mogul is telling his friends that national unrest may demand a “tough and steady” presence alongside him on the ticket.
Flynn served as the head of Defense Intelligence Agency under President Obama. The Defense Intelligence is basically the CIA for the U.S. military.
A registered Democrat, Flynn has been serving as an adviser to Trump since the spring, and he is an ardent critic of the president’s national security approach.
