Donald Trump’s pick for national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, was forced out of his position running military intelligence for President Obama. His tweets help explain why.

Islamophobia

Flynn is not subtle about his belief that all Muslims are evil and that the religion of Islam should be defined entirely by the acts of its most radical extremists — and defeated.

Criminal Justice

A passion for “law and order” is a guiding theme for Flynn’s tweets and retweets mocking the Black Lives Matter movement and turning a blind eye to police brutality.

Anti-Immigration

Flynn shares Trump’s staunch anti-immigration policy, and several of his tweets and retweets demonstrate a blatant endorsement for building the wall along the Mexican border and deporting all undocumented immigrants.
