The son of Donald Trump’s incoming national security adviser was asked to leave his transition team on a direct order from Trump, CNN’s Jake Tapper reported on Tuesday.

Michael Flynn Jr., the son of former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, in recent days had publicly embraced a conspiracy theory that a Washington pizza place is a front for a child abuse ring run by Democrats.
Trump spokesman Jason Miller told reporters Tuesday that Flynn Jr. is “no longer involved in transition efforts” but did not provide further details. Vice president-elect Mike Pence later confirmed the change in an interview with Tapper.
Flynn Jr. had been helping his father with “administration and scheduling duties,” Miller said.
Do you stand by Trump’s decision?
