Flynn, 57, a registered Democrat but fierce critic of President Obama, previously ran the Defense Intelligence Agency.
The persons, who spoke with The Washington Post on Saturday, requested anonymity to discuss their private conversations in recent days with Trumpís confidants and campaign aides.

I like it! Great idea! :)
One person encouraging Trump to perhaps choose a general is Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who has become a force inside of the campaign. He shares Trumps view that while unorthodox, a general could excite voters from both parties who want to see wholesale change in domestic politics and an aggressive approach to combating terrorism.
Why is the General a Democrat?
Usually those are political Generals not serious Generals.
I highly endorse Rrumps thinking on Mike Flynn!! He would be a fantastic choice
I am so sick of republicans being this stupid election after election.
I like that he’s going with his gut instincts once again...
Trump is the only person who can prevent a Pres. Clinton, so I’ll vote for him if he picks Wesley Clark.
But I don’t have to like it!
Flynn, a Rhode Island native whose book Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies, comes out July 12, has shown a willingness to be an attack dog, a role often played by vice-presidential candidates.
“If it were me, I would have been out the door and probably in jail,” Flynn told CNN in February when asked about presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clintons email practices while secretary of state. He called on her to drop out of the race.
Flynn did not leave the Obama administration on warm terms. In 2014, he was effectively forced out of the Defense Intelligence Agency as part of a leadership shake-up after clashing with officials over his management style and vision for the agency.
A registered Democrat. Need more information about Flynn's record where he's criticized Obama, his positions on Iraq, Afghanistan, ISIS, Libya, Saudi Arabia and Islamic Terrorism and how to deal with it.
Agree that Trump needs to project strength on National Security Issues.
What an odd headline: “Hes seriously considering a retired general”
You can almost hear the WaPo writers gasping and lisping.
A little birdie told me it will be Flynn for vp and Christie for ag.
Registered democrat? ... absolutely NFW.
TRUMP is not a “Republican”, at least not in the current definition. All the more reason he has my vote!
Reagan was once a Registered Democrat. Things change.
Yeah, it worked so well with Admiral Stockdale.
At least Stockdale had been a Republican.
