Tillerson on Gorka's Resignation Letter: 'Completely Wrong' in Assessment of Trump Policy

Tillerson on Gorka's Resignation Letter: 'Completely Wrong' in Assessment of Trump Policy

Expressing his strong belief in the Trump presidency, Gorka in his letter has also written, "Your presidency will prove to be one of the most significant events in modern American politics".

"While it is appropriate that President Trump's chief strategist has now returned to Breitbart News, Bannon did not fall out of favor because he emboldens white supremacists, but only because he stole the spotlight from President Trump".

Although Mr Trump enjoyed watching Mr Gorka's cable television appearances, in which he performed like a pit bull and taunted many news anchors for peddling what he and the President deemed "fake news", he had run afoul of many of his colleagues, including some on the United States National Security Council who considered him a fringe figure. "Muslim Advocates has vocally advocated for his ouster from the very beginning, because, even in a White House crawling with white supremacists, Gorka stood out for his consistent and lifelong commitment to anti-Muslim and antisemitic causes".

Gorka submitted his resignation to retired Gen. John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, on Friday, a White House official said.

The news, which came late Friday evening, was widely expected in the West Wing, which has now seen high-profile departures on successive Fridays for several weeks.

"He goes on TV - and the president likes that - and attacks the media, but it's not clear exactly what his role is", he continued.

His departure spells the end of the Bannon era in the White House.

Gorka, an ally of Bannon's who worked as a national security editor at Breitbart before joining the White House, reiterated during Saturday's show that he resigned over frustration with other factions of White House staffers.

Several White House officials have told CNN Gorka was forced out of the administration.

Gorka also was a member of the White House's Strategic Initiatives Group, which he described as a focal point for task forces collaborating with people outside government.

"Breitbart is now in negotiations 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", it said on its site Friday.
