Ex-Trump adviser Michael Flynn endorses Fernando Mateo for mayor

Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn is endorsing Fernando Mateo in the Republican primary for mayor.

Flynn touted Mateo as a backer of Trump’s “America First” agenda while slamming Sliwa as a “Never Trumper.”

“I strongly endorse Fernando Mateo for Mayor of New York City, because he understands, supports and embraces President Trump’s America First agenda. President Trump was the most pro-law enforcement President in US History and Fernando will bring America First policies to the citizens of New York City and Make New York Safe Again,” Flynn said in a statement provided through the Mateo campaign.

“He’s the right person at the right time and the only real Republican in the race and his Never Trump opponent must be stopped,” Flynn said.
