Close Bannon ally and fiery Trump spokesman quits

Letters Here's how to make local airport soar

In it, Mr Gorka writes that "it is clear to me that forces that do not support the (Make America Great Again) promise are - for now - ascendant within the White House". "And I think there's been some unfair criticism of Sebastian Gorka, but one criticism, or at least one question that seems legitimate, is no one's ever figured out exactly what he does in the White House".

He also strongly refuted the allegation of former White House official Sebastian Gorka on the absence of word "radical Islamic terrorism" in Trump's Afghan policy speech.

On Saturday, the Axios website described him as "a bombastic White House aide known only to cable-news viewers", although his British accent also became familiar to watchers of the BBC.

The unflappable Englishman was seen in many quarters as the President's most ardent defender, going on a litany of news outlets both in the USA and United Kingdom to answer questions on behalf of the Trump administration.

Sebastian Gorka gave his first interview on Saturday since "resigning" as Trump's deputy assistant, and despite the fact that neither he nor his mentor/Breitbart pal Steve Bannon are part of the administration anymore, the good doctor is confident they are now somehow even closer to the levers of power.

In India a passenger train derailed, there are victims
At least five carriages came off the tracks and some hit nearby houses in Muzaffarnagar , northern India. A team of the ATS of the state police has been rushed to the accident site, an official told IANS.

The White House announced Gorka's departure on Friday evening, just one week after his ally, Stephen Bannon, left his post as White House chief strategist.

"Let's get everything on the record, I chose to resign last week", he said, explaining that he made the decision after Trump's speech on Afghanistan this week.

A person familiar with the situation said Kelly was coming up empty when it came to Gorka's role, though he recognized his efforts to promote Trump's message on television. He was previously the site's national security editor.

Steve Bannon, the President's former chief political strategist, invited Gorka into the Trump universe from Breitbart News, which Bannon led before entering into politics during the 2016 presidential campaign.

While Bannon's departure from the White House last week was widely viewed as a blow to his personal agenda, Bannon insisted that his influence over the direction of the country will be bolstered by his position as an outside critic and proponent of the administration.
