Gorka: I Resigned Because WH Officials Are Undermining MAGA Platform
Dr. Sebastian Gorka shed some much-anticipated light on his resignation from his White House post as well as the recent staffing shakeup.
The former deputy assistant to President Trump resigned shortly after White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and Gorka's old boss at Breitbart was fired. Bannon came under scrutiny after critics accused him of being a white nationalist.
The president's 'Make America Great Again' platform that propelled him to the Oval Office faces a lot of opposition by White House officials, Gorka told "Fox & Friends" Tuesday.
"That's why I left," Breitbart's former national security editor stated.
"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," Gorka's resignation letter read.
However, Gorka said he is hopeful for the agenda's future and knows President Trump will fight for it.
"He is not going to give up," Gorka said. "The question is, are the people around him going to support him. At least the people on the outside like myself, Steve Bannon, we are going to support him to the fullest."
"Sooner or later the right people are going to be around him."
Gorka said Trump called him after his resignation and asked Gorka to help from the outside, especially in the media.
"And that's exactly what I'm going to do."
