As President Trump begins his first foreign trip as commander-in-chief, many in the mainstream media are focused on reports from The New York Times and The Washington Post about the ongoing investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

On "Hannity" tonight, Dr. Sebastian Gorka said the mainstream media can try to distract from Trump's trip, but it won't stop the president from doing what's best for the American people.

"It’s not news, it’s not reporting, it’s just propaganda," Gorka, deputy assistant to the president, said of the media. "We have a mission that we had approved by the American people, and we’re executing it."

"There's what the media says, and then there's reality," Gorka continued. "And we live in the world of reality, Sean, the president and his team."

Gorka said the people in the Middle East are excited to welcome Trump and the return of "American leadership" to the region.

"Finally, we’re going to treat our friends like friends, after eight years of our allies and partners being shunned," Gorka said. "And we’re going to be victorious against groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda."

"Remember what the president said: we are going to obliterate and eradicate these groups. And finally, we have a commander-in-chief who will make that possible."
