In recent weeks, companies have come under fire for making statements that have been seen as offensive to President Trump.
Here’s a rundown of what you need to know about some of these controversies: Trump’s decision to fire Michael Flynn over his failure to disclose contacts with the Russian government—the first time a president has fired a U.S. military officer for the same reason—went viral in the press and on social media.
A few days after the firing, President Trump held a press conference with General Flynn to announce the decision to remove him.
Flynn, who has been a vocal supporter of the Trump administration, called the firing an “act of war.”
During the press conference, Flynn also said that he was “deeply disappointed” in the president’s actions, and called for him to resign.
The White House denied that Flynn ever met with Russian officials or had any communications with Russian operatives.
In the days that followed, Flynn apologized for his comments, and he also took the opportunity to call for greater transparency in U.N. and U.K. meetings.
In addition, the U.M.N., a U,K.
government body that oversees the U,S.
arms embargo on Russia, announced that it was suspending its arms embargo with Russia.
At a press briefing, President Joe Biden praised Flynn for speaking out against Trump’s actions.
“We’re in the midst of a very, very dangerous time here in the world, and the president has been extremely vocal about that,” Biden said.
The U.U.S.-Russia relationship has suffered during this administration.
After Flynn resigned, Vice President Mike Pence criticized Trump for his statements regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which he blamed on Putin.
Pence later backed down on his comments.
But Pence and Trump have been sparring regularly, and it’s not clear whether Pence will step aside from his administration to help Trump.
Trump has called the Russian ambassador to the U., Sergey Kislyak, a “nut job,” and has publicly attacked the U.-K.
alliance with Russia, a move that could spark a new Cold War.
The president has also used social media to threaten retaliation for Flynn’s resignation, which prompted Flynn to resign as a member of the National Security Council in February.
In his resignation letter, Flynn blamed Trump for the U-K.
withdrawal and called him “a friend of mine” who had “great respect for me and the U.’s leadership position in the region.”
The Trump administration has been working to create a new national security council to replace the NSC.
According to a White House official, the new council will include “national security professionals who have a long history of working with Russia” and who have “a clear commitment to advancing U. S. interests in the Asia-Pacific region.”
Vice President Pence, meanwhile, has pushed the president to remove former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn from his National Security Advisory Board.
Flynn resigned from the NSSB on Feb. 12, citing his refusal to take a meeting with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Pence said he and Trump had discussed “whether he should step down” and that “the president has spoken to him and he said he is going to accept the resignation.”
In his letter to Flynn, Pence said that the president was committed to the NSPB and that he “wanted to offer my support.”
Pence said the NSpB was created to “ensure that senior government officials with deep expertise and integrity are fully engaged with our nation’s national security issues.”
Pence also said Flynn had been a “strong supporter” of Trump’s agenda, which included withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, and that Flynn was also “a key architect of President Trump’s effort to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada.”
The White Senate has also been trying to find a replacement for Flynn.
The Senate has asked a special counsel to investigate Flynn’s relationship with Russia during the 2016 election and has been exploring whether he violated the Hatch Act by taking payments from Russia and other foreign governments.
“The White House continues to work with the Senate Intelligence Committee and others to assess Flynn’s conduct and any additional steps that the Senate may take to protect his constitutional rights,” said a statement from the Senate committee.
Flynn has said that if he had a problem with the White House, he would call a former White House counsel, but the Senate is also looking into whether Flynn violated any other laws by making a personal appearance at a January 2016 White House reception.
Flynn is scheduled to testify on Feb 7 before the Senate Judiciary Committee, but it is not clear if he will testify.
