Sebastian Gorka Is Out as Trump Aide

Mr Sebastian Gorka, a controversial White House staff member who served as a fiery spokesman for President Donald Trump on national security matters, has abruptly left the administration as his nationalist faction was being silenced, four people briefed on the exit confirmed.

The Federalist first reported Friday that Gorka had left his post in the Trump administration and announced his blunt frustration with the direction in which the White House was headed in a fiery resignation letter.

But most White House staffers came to see the departure last week of chief strategist Steve Bannon as a sign that Gorka's days were numbered. The two worked together at Breitbart prior to joining the Trump administration.

"On key issues, we've done great things, but unfortunately, those who don't believe in many of those things are now at the helm in key places, and we have to make sure that they maintain the MAGA doctrine and we're going to be doing that right now", Gorka said.

That led a White House official to issue a cryptic statement that had a clear undertone: Gorka was sacked.

"The president of the United States ran a campaign on a very simple platform". "I think he's completely wrong". Everybody knows where the real power in America lies.

"This was made patently obvious as I read the text of your speech on Afghanistan this week ..." "That speech was written by people for the president in direct contravention of everything that we voted for November the 8th".

Liberals and progressives have long decried Gorka's presence in the White House.

It also comes as the White House seeks to reset the media narrative after Trump's widely panned response to the racially motivated violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month.

According to Breitbart, the news agency is in talks with Dr. Gorka regarding "his support for the website, as well as collaboration on a joint venture that would embody a Jacksonian national security vision".

His departure spells the end of the Bannon era in the White House.

All three headlines popped after 6 p.m. Friday as TV news broadcasts and websites turned their attention to Texas, where Hurricane Harvey was preparing to make landfall as a Category 4 hurricane - the most powerful to hit the U.S. since 2004.

When a bomb exploded at a Mosque in outside of Minneapolis, Gorka defended Trump's silence on the attack by suggesting that it could have been a "fake hate crime".

"I laugh in their faces". "I can rally the base, have his back. The fact is, that's the bottom line, Matt, and I'm proud and I wear it as a badge of honor". "You're only taking flak when you're on the target".
