Sebastian Gorka left the White House and people have been unsure whether he was fired or he resigned. However, a few White House leaks reveal the truth of what exactly happened. “WH official says Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but confirms he no longer works at the White House,” tweeted CBS’ Mark Knoller.
However, other networks told a different story. “Two admin officials tell me Gorka was pushed out, did not resign, had been on vacation for weeks,” tweeted New York Times Maggie Haberman. “Gorka resigned to Kelly bc it was clear to him he would not be allowed to have a meaningful role going forward, a White House official says,” tweeted CNN’s Kaitlan Collins.
“Two sources close to Trump tell me Seb Gorka was fired, one insists he resigned. Bottom line: forced out,” tweeted Bloomberg News’ Jennifer Jacobs.
If these conflicting reports prove anything, it could prove the unreliability of White House ‘sources’. Gorka wrote a blunt and angry letter to the White House after he was ‘forced out’. He wrote that it was a sign that President Trump was changing his ‘MAGA’ campaign promise. “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,” he wrote.
“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,” wrote Gorka.
