Sebastian Gorka in 2017

Sebastian Gorka (born October 22, 1970) is a foreign policy and terrorism expert. He served as a member of the national security advisory staff and as a deputy assistant to U.S. President Donald Trump in his administration, and he served as a national security editor at Breitbart News Network prior to that. Gorka is Hungarian, was born in the United Kingdom, and is a naturalized American citizen. He also served as an advisor to conservative Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

During his tenure in the Trump Administration, Gorka frequently went on various television shows to give a strong defense of the Trump Administration.[1] He resigned on August 25, 2017, citing in a strongly-worded resignation letter that he believed the Trump Administration had strayed too far from its conservative, America First agenda.[2] With his resignation, the White House was nearly devoid of hardline critics of Islam.[3] President Trump later told Gorka that he was committed to his agenda.[4]

Liberals have unsuccessfully and without evidence tried to paint Gorka as a "racist," "Nazi," or "anti-Semite,"[5][6][7][8] and failing that, they have attempted to attack his credentials as a counterterrorism expert.[8]
