Former Defense Intelligence Agency Director retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn faulted Hillary Clinton's foreign policy experiences, classifying all of them as failures during a Thursday night interview on Fox News.
Flynn told host Greta Van Susteren he would describe presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump as a "more secure" commander in chief because Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee, has a record of lying to the public.
"She talked about people who are dangerous. I mean, a secretary of state who lies to the American public, a secretary of state who uses an unsecure email server to send and receive highly classified national security information, knowing that she is not doing the right thing," Flynn said.
"When you look at some of the actions that she was directly involved in — the rise of the Islamic State, the failure of Libya, the failure of the Russian reset, the failure of the pivot to the Pacific with, you know, with China — nobody talks that about it anymore it was such a failure," continued Flynn. "I could go on and on — the Iranian nuclear deal which she was directly involved in, Yemen. I mean, there are so many things that she touched are just utter failures."
The former top defense official admitted while he does not agree with all of Trump's foreign policy and military views, the two do share common ground on the issues, including boosting the economy.
"The greatest threat to our country right now is our economy. Number one, there is no doubt about it in my mind," Flynn said. "Hillary Clinton in that speech — she didn't talk much about the economy. She really didn't. She talked about sort of these lofty things and really didn't dive into the things that I believe the American public cares about which is the economy of our country."
