+

According to Reuters [1], General Michael T. Flynn, former director of the DIA, is advising Donald Trump, the candidate, in international politics.

Mr. Trump, known for his sensational statements, refrained from punchy statements on foreign policy issues. He described President Putin as a "very respected man ".

In 2012, General Flynn tried opposing the White House proposal to play the Daesh card in Iraq and Syria. He was abruptly admitted into retirement in August, 2014. On December 10, 2015, he participated at the side of President Putin, in the celebrations of the anniversary of Russia Today.
