Why was Gorka fired? He says forces hostile to America First now rule the Trump Administration.
Despite an initial report that he resigned, it now seems that “forces” had Sebastian Gorka fired from his position as Deputy Assistant to President Trump. At least, all The Federalist could get from the White House was that he no longer had his job and he did not resign as they had reported.
His letter to President Trump asserts that the White House is now captive to powers “that do not support the MAGA promises.” He specifically points to Trump’s recent Afghanistan speech for evidence of a change in the Trump Administration.
The Federalist reports, “Breaking: Sebastian Gorka Resigns From Trump Administration.” (They haven’t changed the headline despite the contradicting statement from the White House).
“[G]iven recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are – for now – ascendant within the White House,” Gorka wrote. “As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People’s House.”[…]
“Regrettably, outside of yourself, the individuals who most embodied and represented the policies that will ‘Make America Great Again,’ have been internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months. This was made patently obvious as I read the text of your speech on Afghanistan this week…
“The fact that those who drafted and approved the speech removed any mention of Radical Islam or radical Islamic terrorism proves that a crucial element of your presidential campaign has been lost…
“Just as worrying, when discussing our future actions in the region, the speech listed operational objectives without ever defining the strategic victory conditions we are fighting for. This omission should seriously disturb any national security professional, and any American who is unsatisfied with the last 16 years of disastrous policy decisions which have led to thousands of Americans killed and trillions of taxpayer dollars spent in ways that have not brought security or victory.”
Here’s a YouTube commenter who thinks this is part of Donald Trump’s strategy (language warning):
