Tillerson: Gorka is 'completely wrong' on 'radical Islam' term

Congresswoman Barbara Lee

"On key issues, we've done great things, but unfortunately, those who don't believe in many of those things are now at the helm in key places, and we have to make sure that they maintain the MAGA doctrine and we're going to be doing that right now", Gorka said.

There is no Trump administration Why the next Fed chief will be a Republican who loves low rates Why this US-North Korea standoff is different MORE said on Sunday former White House aide Sebastian Gorka was "completely wrong" to criticize the president's Afghanistan speech because there was no mention of "radical Islam".

Earlier Saturday, Trump provided reassurances about the emergency response to the hurricane, tweeting that he was "closely monitoring" the situation from Camp David as the storm dumps torrents of rain on Texas and leaves hundreds of thousands of people without power.

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

The official said Mr Trump decided the Obama administration had not identified a sufficient basis for changing what was then long-standing policy on transgender troops. "Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but I can confirm he no longer works at the White House", the official said.

North Korea had last tested a Intercontinental Missile on July 28, which put USA within striking distance of its nuclear weapons. US President Donald Trump, meanwhile, threatened the isolated regime with " fire and fury like the world has never seen".

"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".

Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) and another California Democrat, Rep. Barbara Lee of Oakland, introduced proposals on Friday to cut off two highly scrutinized White House aides' salaries, hours before one was reported out of the job.

Gorka was one of Trump's most prominent cheerleaders, frequently hitting the airwaves to defend the President's policies and public statements.

Gorka's work for Trump goes back as far as 2015; Federal Election Commission filings showed that he was paid $8,000 that October to be a policy consultant for the Trump campaign, reports CNN.

What was his role at the White House?

"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".
