Tillerson to Gorka: You're Completely Wrong, Lack Understanding

Trump Adviser Sebastian Gorka Is Leaving The White House

Gorka wrote that "forces that do not support that MAGA promise are - for now - ascendant within the White House", referring to Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan.

As a strong voice in the White House, Gorka and his family have been maligned and smeared through various media outlets.

Sebastian Gorka has been speaking out in the days following his departure from the White House, but looking forward, he has a Star Wars analogy for what's ahead.

But a White House official implied Friday he was sacked.

Gorka, a passionate defender of President Trump who regularly promoted the administration's agenda in media appearances, expressed disappointment in Trump's public statement announcing the deployment of 4,000 additional troops to Afghanistan―specifically, the failure to mention radical Islamic terrorism.

Now that Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka have both left the White House, Democratic Rep.

"Sebastian Gorka's departure is long overdue and welcome, but he should not have been working in the White House in the first place".


Richard Painter, former chief White House ethics lawyer for President George W Bush, tweeted: "Gorka: Probably the most stupid of the alt-right in the White House".

"Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace asked Tillerson about Gorka's accusations, especially regarding the president's recent speech on Afghanistan.

From past reports, it appeared that the issue was his inability to get a security clearance, making it impossible for him to do substantive work on his claimed areas of expertise such as national security.

Meanwhile Mr Gary Cohn, a prominent Jewish member of Mr Trump's administration, seriously considered resigning and even drafted a letter of resignation after the deadly violence over a rally led by white nationalists, according to two people familiar with the draft.

'This was more or less going to be a done deal when Bannon submitted his resignation, ' an unnamed source close to the White House told The Federalist.

Gorka, an ally of Bannon's who worked as a national security editor at Breitbart before joining the White House, reiterated during Saturday's show that he resigned over frustration with other factions of White House staffers.

Activists had been calling for Gorka, known for his illiberal views on immigration and terrorism, to follow his friend and fellow hardliner Steve Bannon, Trump's chief strategist who quit the administration a week earlier and returned to the conservative Breitbart News.
