He’d by no means been in a scenario earlier than the place he wasn’t solely shielded from criticism or accountability or issues like that. And I feel Michael Flynn had simply needed to be fired. And from the get-go, it hadn’t been going effectively particularly. So, I did imply it in some sense. I didn’t imply, ‘I would like you to maintain doing what you’re doing and get away with it.’ And in addition, a lot of what has occurred since then hadn’t but occurred. And I simply bear in mind considering, he appears drained. He appears – this isn’t what he signed up for, if even is aware of what he signed up for. And I assumed his response was really extra enlightening than my assertion. And he stated, ‘They received’t get me.’ And up to now, appears like he’s proper.
