When it comes to Donald Trump’s running mate for the 2016 election, VP contender Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn says one thing’s for sure: “He’ll make the right decision for the country.”
“I’m not campaigning for a job here, I’m campaigning for this country. This country is something that I deeply believe in and I believe the direction that we have been taking for the last eight years is so wrong,” he told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.
Also in the running is former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and Indiana Governor Mike Pence. This morning, Trump and his family met with Governor Pence at his home in Indiana.
“Donald Trump has to choose someone who he believes can help us win in this next election and us being the United States of America. Donald Trump is about the future of this country and making sure that we take a direction… that puts us back on a track that we can continue to be the global leader around the world,” said Flynn.
The former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency also weighed in on reports over the Islamic State preparing for the end of its caliphate.
“What I know is that there are large elements, the size of this organization has doubled in capacity in the last few years, they are not fading… If they lose some tactical turf in Iraq or even in places like Syria, that doesn’t mean that this enemy has disappeared,” he said.
