Days after President Trump’s Deputy Assistant, Sebastian Gorka, left the White House, controversy remains over whether he was fired or resigned. However, in a Saturday interview with Brietbart, Gorka cleared the air and explained his decision to leave the Trump Administration right on the heels of former Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon.
Dozens of mainstream media outlets reported that Gorka was forced out of the White House, with one “unnamed White House Source” claiming that, “Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but I can confirm he no longer works at the White House.”
The New York Times reported, “Sebastian Gorka, an outspoken adviser to President Trump and lightning rod for controversy, has been forced out of his position at the White House, two administration officials said on Friday. One of the officials said that the president’s chief of staff, John F. Kelly, had telegraphed his lack of interest in keeping Mr. Gorka during internal discussions over the last week.”
However, Gorka appeared on Breitbart News this past Saturday to counter the false mainstream narrative about his departure. Gorka, a renown anti-Jihad expert, and anti-Sharia activist, made it clear that he left under his own volition and wasn’t forced out. “Let’s get everything on the record, I decided to resign last week,” he stated and expressed that it was everything that was going on in the White House that led him to resign from his position. “I don’t want to go into the palace intrigue stuff — had too much of that — but the fact is, the forces of MAGA, the Make America Great Again faces, the policy people like Steve Bannon, my old boss inside the White House, have been systematically undermined, many of them fired from the NSC (National Security Council),” Gorka explained, simplifying Trump’s “MAGA” platform to fixing the economy, building the border wall and defeating the Islamic State.
“So, I decided, just as with Steve [Bannon], we can be far more effective for the president on the outside,” Gorka explained. “And it’s a very exciting day for me and my family at the start again to support the MAGA message as private citizens.”
Gorka’s resignation was confirmed on Friday, with The Federalist publishing the resignation letter from Gorka that went on to indicate several elements including Trump’s speech on Afghanistan that went against Trump’s promise to “make America great again.”
He stated in his very blunt resignation, “Given recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are – for now – ascendant within the White House.” And that, “As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People’s House.”
Gorka also indicated that in the resignation that he still believes in Trump’s presidency and expressed, “Your presidency will prove to be one of the most significant events in modern American politics. November the 8th was the result of decades during which the political and media elites felt that they knew better than the people who elect them into office. They do not, and the MAGA platform allowed their voices to be heard,” he wrote. And added, “Millions of people believe in, and have chosen, you and your vision of Making America Great Again. They will help eventually rebalance this temporary reality.”
Axios described him as “a bombastic White House aide known only to cable-news viewers” despite the fact that, “Trump raved about Gorka’s performances, telling colleagues he had no idea what Gorka actually did but loved him on TV.”
On the other hand, Farhana Khera, executive director of the group Muslim Advocates viewed Gorka’s resignation as a positive development, saying “Good riddance to Sebastian Gorka. Muslim Advocates has vocally advocated for his ouster from the very beginning, because, even in a White House crawling with white supremacists, Gorka stood out for his consistent and lifelong commitment to anti-Muslim and antisemitic causes.”
Vanita Gupta, President of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights expressed, “Sebastian Gorka’s departure is long overdue and welcome, but he should not have been working in the White House in the first place. No one who supports white supremacy and neo-Nazi ideas should be serving in this or any administration.”
It needs to be noted that the Alt-Left, and Antifa make no distinction whatsoever between the KKK, Nazis, Trump supporters, Establishment Republicans, or anti-Sharia Law activists like Gorka.
