Jason Miller, an aide to Trump, said Flynn met with the president-elect on Wednesday and said he would be a "fantastic addition" to the team.

"No formal announcement yet for that position. Gen. Flynn met with the president-elect today. He has been a companion on the campaign trail quite a bit, as we've seen over the past few months," he said in an interview with Fox News's Megyn Kelly.

"He'd be a fantastic addition. I'll let the president-elect make that decision. I'm a huge fan of Gen. Flynn," he added.

Later Wednesday, ABC News also tweeted that Flynn had been chosen, before walking it back to say he is a "contender" for the job.

However, NBC News reported that Flynn was, in fact, going to be the next national security adviser, according to a source familiar with the situation.
