Donald Trump's National Security Adviser Sebastian Gorka Resigns From White House

Monday, 28 Aug, 2017

The announcement on Friday (local time) announcement was widely expected in the West Wing, according to USA media.

And like many things with Trump, it was taken to an extreme.

Miller, a former top aide to then-Sen. He regularly appeared on television as a vociferous defender of Trump's national security agenda and worldview. This time, it was Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Trump.

"After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the USA military", Trump tweeted in July.

"Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but I can confirm he no longer works at the White House", an official said.

As well as Gorka and Bannon, seven other White House aides have either resigned or been sacked including Priebus, national security advisor Michael Flynn and successive communications directors Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci.

Trump signaled at a rally Tuesday night in Arizona that he had made a decision to pardon Arpaio but said he would delay the announcement to avoid stirring controversy.

"Senior White House official only". "He gives his best advice but he wasn't going to stop the Sheriff Joe thing".

Under the system, also used by previous administrations, the President will not view any external policy documents, internal policy memos, agency reports and even news articles that have not been vetted, Politico said.

She pointed to the two other actions the president took on August 25: signing into law a ban on transgender people serving in the military and pardoning a controversial Arizona sheriff. "So sad, so weak". "I can rally the base, have his back".

"The President brought justice to a situation where the Obama administration had attempted to destroy a political opponent", said Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. "He's a big supporter of law enforcement".

The remarks pointed to Kelly's biggest challenge: piloting Trump though a hectic fall filled with high-stakes deadlines for funding the government, raising the debt ceiling and making progress on tax reform.

"You know what, I'll make a prediction. So that's very disturbing".

The President signed a memorandum issuing his directives on reinstating the ban on transgender troops during the day on Friday, but the White House waited until 6 p.m.to release the news.

Trump's pardon of Arpaio, while legal, was unquestionably an abuse of power and rebuke to the justice system.

Writing in the blog Lawyers, Guns & Money, Dan Nexon, a professor of worldwide relations at Georgetown University said: "I am confident that [Gorka's dissertation] would not earn him a doctorate at any reputable academic department in the United States". He added, "We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. Congress must act to show that we will not stand for this type of hateful ideology influencing the most important office in our nation", he said. "He is very well aware that his base is shrinking and in a way that explains nearly everything he's done over the last month".
