President-elect Trump has selected Lt. General Michael Flynn as his National Security Advisor.

According to Fox News, Flynn has not officially accepted the job. Flynn has been a loyal supporter of President-elect Trump, and has toured with Trump throughout the presidential campaign.

The national security advisor does not require Senate confirmation. The job is based in the White House and its occupant has frequent access to the president.  The appointment is sure to create waves based on some of the comments Flynn has made about Muslims in the past.    He once tweeted that it is reasonable to fear Muslims.

Flynn, who served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, has advised Trump on national security issues for months.

Flynn, who turns 58 next month, built a reputation in the Army as a passionate patriot and a straight talker. Although he retired in 2014, he had remained active in politics.  He often appears on Fox News  to voice criticism of President Barack Obama’s approach to global affairs and fighting Islamic State militants.
