Trump picks bigots

Trump is choosing bigots for important positions in his administration. And yet, many Republican bigots like Michael Chartofff are seemingly okay with such choices. That says a lot about the filthy direction our country is heading for. Shame on these SOBs who give a bad name to America!
Click here to see an article on some of the picks of Trump.
============
Here below is an article on the subject from the LA Times:
Donald Trump's choice to be his closest and most powerful confidant on national security, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, has been an outspoken critic of the Obama administration's approach to Islamic militancy and believes acts of terrorism by Muslims is rooted in mainstream Islamic faith.
Flynn, a retired military officer who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency for two years under President Obama, joined Trump's campaign early on, helping shape the views of a candidate with little foreign policy or national security experience.
As national security advisor, Flynn will be in charge of making sure Trump's policy goals are executed by the armed forces, the State Department and a constellation of intelligence agencies, including the CIA. The job does not require Senate confirmation, which may have been difficult for Flynn given his extreme views of Muslims.
In February, Flynn tweeted a YouTube video that says all Muslims should be feared and lists bombings perpetrated by Muslims.

His tweet was widely criticized as prejudiced and ignorant. Islam is practiced by 1.6 billion Muslims around the world.
During his campaign, Trump showed openness to having all U.S. Muslims register with the federal government and banning Muslims from entering the U.S.
Trump and Flynn agree that the U.S. should cooperate more with Russia to battle Islamic State militants and other extremist groups. In 2015, Flynn was paid to attend a dinner in Moscow hosted by Russia Today, Russia's government-sponsored English-language news channel, and sat at the same table as Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“I am pleased that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn will be by my side as we work to defeat radical Islamic terrorism, navigate geopolitical challenges and keep Americans safe at home and abroad,” Trump in a statement Friday.
Flynn said he was "deeply humbled and honored to accept the position."
