With the departure of adviser Sebastian Gorka on Friday night, President Donald Trump's White House is looking more like a temp agency than a "running so smoothly" administration. "Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but I can confirm he no longer works at the White House", the official said.

Then came news that Gorka was leaving the White House.

Gorka moved quickly to claim that his departure was a resignation, not a firing.

It further accused Gorka of being linked to "former prominent members of the anti-Semitic Jobbik party in Hungary".

As a result, Gorka said that he contacted White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and notified him of his impending resignation.

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. That stance reversed Trump's campaign pledges to end American involvement there, a shift also cited by Gorka in his parting letter.

Maduro and his allies, the official said, have "demonstrated clear intent to rely on repression and corruption to maintain power". The goal of these general licenses is to limit harm passed on to the Venezuelan and American people, the White House said.

Liberals and progressives have long decried Gorka's presence in the White House.

Whether Gorka resigned or was sacked is unclear, NBC News reported. 'If you strike me down, I will be more powerful than you can ever imagine.' The left thinks they're winning. Gorka has worn the organization's medal to public events, saying he does so to honor his father's anti-Nazi and anti-communist activity.

"I realized after the President's speech this week on Afghanistan that he's not being well-served", Gorka said.

"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.

According to Breitbart, the news agency is in talks 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". "So, in Afghanistan, we have to secure Afghanistan in a way that that can never occur again because there's no territory available to organisations to do so", he said. "He said, 'I'm going to fix the economy, build the wall and defeat ISIS, '" Gorka told Boyle. And George Stephanopoulos goes one-on-one with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and White House Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser Thomas Bossert on the government's emergency response.
