WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement on President-Elect Donald Trump’s intent to name retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor.
“I am confident Lieutenant General Flynn will serve President-elect Trump well as his National Security Advisor. I’ve known him for many years and served with him in Afghanistan. He has depth of knowledge and tremendous real-world experience when it comes to our national security.
“Lieutenant General Flynn understands the important role the United States plays in the world order. I believe he will advocate for a stronger American leadership role as the best way to defend our nation. With this selection, I believe the days of America ‘leading from behind’ will be over.”
