Sebastian Gorka, former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, gave a reportedly classified speech at the U.S. Army Special Operations Center of Excellence weeks before he was removed from his White House position, according to Buzzfeed News.

An officer who was at the Aug. 9 speech described it as a "tirade," according to Axios.

That officer said the "tirade" was about the Afghanistan War, Sharia law, radical Islamic terrorism, and how the Trump administration had policies to "defeat it all." Another U.S. Army special operations officer described the speech as "classic Gorka," according to Buzzfeed.

The lecture was called "Transnational Terrorism / Insurgent Ideology," and Gorka delivered it in a secure video teleconference from the White House to the operations center in Fort Bragg, according to Buzzfeed.

Two special operations officers told Buzzfeed that Chief of Staff John Kelly had barred Gorka from speaking publicly while he was serving as Trump's deputy assistant.

Gorka went on vacation not long after the Aug. 9 speech. During that time, his security clearance was revoked, according to HuffPost. He left his position in the White House on Aug. 25.

The former deputy assistant has spoken in support of the president since his exit from the White House. Tuesday in a Newsmax TV interview, Gorka said he believed Trump would not recertify the accord with Iran.
