Sebastian Gorka resigned from the Trump administration, leaving his post as the Deputy Assistant to the President. His resignation letter focused on his unsatisfied opinion and direction of the Trump administration. Gorka wrote “[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.”
Gorka appears to be unhappy with the direction Trump's foreign policy had traveled, particularly in reference to the speech Trump delivered regarding Afghanistan. Gorka expressed that he was dissatisfied with the editing and removal of any mention of "radical Islamic terrorism" and "radical Islam" from the content of Trump's speech. Gorka mentioned the promise and policies presented to adhere to Trump's popular slogan of "Make America Great Again" have been lost, countered, removed, or dissuaded from being utilized or put into action.

“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.”
The now resigned Deputy Assistant specialized in countering Islamic terrorism, Qatar, China's economic warfare, and supporting the creation of a long-term strategy for national security.
Gorka was reportedly close with Steve Bannon, who also resigned, and analysts feel it was only a matter of time before Gorka followed suit with his own resignation. Both Bannon and Gorka have contributed to Breitbart news.
Critics have attacked Gorka by aligning him with Nazi hate groups in his hometown of Hungary. He rejects and declines the notion, suggesting that neither he nor his family are connected with Nazis. Gorka was active in Hungarian politics before arriving in America.
Gorka believes Trump's presidency will become a significant event in American politics. He explained that the American political system is in a state of temporary reality that needs to be rebalanced.
