The Trump Administration has taken yet another L in the wake of the current President’s continued showcasing of poor leadership skills and disregard for basic human rights.
Following a tumultous week in the White House that began with Trump delivering a contradictive and vague address outlining his plans for moving forward in Afghanistan, it has now been confirmed that Trump’s Deputy Assistant and Top Counterterrorism Adviser, Sebastian Gorka, has resigned.
According to a report from The Federalist, Gorga’s reason for resigning centers heavily around his opposition to Trump failing to mention “radical Islamic terrorism” during his speech on Monday, as well as his failure to provide a definitive strategy for how to achieve his flawed plan of action for Afghanistan.
“Regrettably, outside of yourself, the individuals who most embodied and represented the policies that will ‘Make America Great Again,’ have been internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months,” Gorka wrote in his official resignation letter. “This was made patently obvious as I read the text of your speech on Afghanistan this week. 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.”
Gorka’s resignation comes on the heels of several other high profile White House administration staff in recent weeks and months, including Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Chief of Staff Reince Preibus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. Trump’s advisory panel has also seen the exit of several executives this week, following his absurd comments placing partial blame on opposing protestors present during the recent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, VA that resulted in two deaths and over 30 injuries.
