General Flynn was on the Joe Hoft Show this morning and he discussed many things, including the potential of being President Trump’s Vice President.
Yesterday there were rumors that General Flynn might be considered as a potential pick for Vice President under President Trump. This isn’t the first time his name was mentioned as a Vice President candidate with President Trump.

In the 2016 Election, General Flynn was considered as well. NBC reported:
Retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, the latest name to be thrown into the mix of Donald Trump’s potential running mates, is a 33-year Army veteran with a reputation for being unafraid to shake things up.
NBC News confirmed that the three-star general is being vetted by the Trump campaign. He is the first non-politician known to be under consideration by Trump and would put national security at the forefront of the real estate mogul’s campaign.
General Flynn was asked about this today on the Joe Hoft Show. He told a woman who asked him yesterday about this that he was also asked about this in 2016.
It is an honor to even be considered. It is an honor to even have that question asked of me. I will tell you because I have been in that position when a duly elected President asks you to help, and it’s a hard question to say “no” to. And, the way I feel about our country is if there is a capacity where a President Trump feels that I can help him and I can help this country, then again, that’s a decision I’ll make when I get asked that question.
I will tell you that I know that if we do win, and I believe that we will win in November and everybody’s afraid of that, I know that I will likely be asked to do something.
Prior to that, being asked about VP, there’s a lot of great people and I’m just honored that I’m even in that discussion. So I’ll leave it at that.
Joe Hoft replied.
Isn’t this the American miracle as well. People like you that have been a hero and then crushed by the Deep State, that you could be mentioned for VP, that says so much about this great country.
It does exactly. It shows that if you believe and you stand up and you fight for the goodness of America, that Americans will respond. And that’s why I’m thankful for the response that I’ve received from millions and millions of American around the country and I’m grateful, otherwise I wouldn’t stand here and talk to you today.
