Trump adviser says women should be the ones to decide on abortion

Potential running mates for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump played down their interest Sunday, even as the billionaire candidate has made the selection process unusually public.

On Sunday, Flynn, a native of Middletown, Rhode Island, told ABC News that women "are the ones that have to make that decision because they're the ones.that are going to decide to bring up that child or not".

In an interview on ABC's "This Week," Flynn said, "I think women have to be able to choose ... sort of, the right of choice".

His comments highlight potential friction with delegates at the upcoming Republican National Convention in Cleveland, which will need to ratify Trump's vice presidential choice.

But he also had harsh words for voters who prize the right to life over every other issue: "If people are going to decide [the] election on [the] abortion issue, they should just stay home".

But on Monday, Flynn described himself as a "pro-life Democrat" and and said that the current court standing, which allows for some legal abortions, should be reversed.

Flynn has served in recent months as an adviser to Trump, whom he said has the "responsible leadership" to serve in the White House.

Abortion-rights supporters were skeptical that any ticket headed by Trump would be open to their positions.

Troop is also rumored to be considering for the ticket New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, among others, according to The Boston Herald.

Flynn: "Abortion. I think it's a".

Asked about his views on same-sex marriage, he initially responded, "I don't have any" before adding, "I'm all about national security".

CNN reporter Emily Schmidt said that a source from the Clinton campaign said last month that Bernie Sanders will not be the vice president. He is the first non-politician known to be under consideration by Trump and would put national security at the forefront of the real estate mogul's campaign.

Gen. Flynn did not stop there and went on calling out Federal Bureau of Investigation for not recommending prosecution over the news that Clinton used her private email while serving as secretary of state (via USA Today).

"I have five people including the General [Michael T. Flynn]", Trump said Monday morning. Christie was picked by almost a tenth of Trump supporters.
