NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - With rumors and speculation swirling based on the revolving door at Trump Tower, FOX News confirmed retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was being offered the job of as national security adviser, which does not require Senate confirmation.
It is a crucial post to President-elect Donald Trump, who has no experience with global military conflicts. It is also a controversial move. Flynn has made questionable comments about Muslims. After challenging President Obama's policies, he was forced out of the administration.
The Trump team also hinted who might become attorney general with this statement about Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions: "The president-elect has been unbelievably impressed with Senator Sessions and his phenomenal record as Alabama's attorney general and U.S. attorney." Sessions said he would be honored to be considered.
One name is off the list of a potential Trump administration: Eva Moskowitz of New York's Success Academy charter schools said she doesn't want to be secretary of education despite meeting with Trump this week.
Trump also hosted his first international leader. Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe came to Trump Tower Thursday.
The president elect is also reaching out to a former foe: Gov. Mitt Romney, whom Trump called a "choker" during the campaign. Now it appears Trump is considering Romney for secretary of state.
