The Deputy Assistant to the President, Sebastian Gorka, has left the White House. The man who many consider to be one of the driving forces of the Make America Great Again agenda has apparently quit his post citing issues with “undermining” of the MAGA promise.
In his usual pointed fashion, Gorka’s resignation letter left little to the imagination:
“[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.”
Dr. Gorka made no bones about the lack of direction in the Afghan policy proposal, yet has made it very clear that he is still fully behind the MAGA promise. During his time as Breitbart’s National Security senior editor, he advocated for a clear military strategy that this most recent speech and operational objectives will certainly not fulfill.
As a strong voice in the White House, Gorka and his family have been maligned and smeared through various media outlets. In what is an unfortunate habit of the political extreme left, they have chosen to “play the man, not the ball.”
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.”
