Trump offers high-profile national security advisor job to Flynn

Washington D.C. [United States], Nov. 18 : United States (U.S.) president-elect Donald Trump has reportedly offered the role of national security advisor to Army retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn; however, it was not immediately clear whether Flynn accepted.

Flynn, 57, who was a top adviser and high-profile surrogate to Trump during his campaign, enjoys tremendous access and credibility with Trump, especially because he's had several tours of duty on the battlefield.

He has, however, a long history of controversial remarks and was fired as President Barack Obama's director of the Defence Intelligence Agency in 2014, reports the CNN.
