CLEVELAND – U.S. Army Gen. Michael Flynn, one of the finalists in GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump's hunt for a vice president, told WND on Wednesday he has serious national-security concerns if Hillary Clinton were to be elected president.
"If Hillary Clinton is serious about national security, I challenge her to confront President Obama publicly to demand the U.S. military be restored to the readiness level needed in this age of increasing international terrorism," Flynn told WND.

"If Hillary Clinton is unwilling to confront President Obama on the question of military readiness, then I want her to admit to the American people that the U.S. military has been reduced to pre-World War II levels on her watch."
Flynn added that Mrs. Clinton has followed Obama's lead in being unwilling to declare the nation at war with radical Islamic terrorism, despite the recent massacres in Orlando, Florida, and Nice, France.
"I believe Donald Trump has challenged not only Hillary Clinton but the professional ruling class in the GOP," he said. "Trump takes seriously the issue of border security, recognizing that serious transnational actors are working actively to get into the United States drug cartel members and terrorists, exploiting the open border opportunity created by the Obama administration."
