Now that Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka have both left the White House, Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen tweeted Saturday that there are "2 down and 1 to go," with President Donald Trump's senior policy adviser Stephen Miller next.

The Tennessee lawmaker, called Gorka a "fiery nationalist and Bannon ally," in his post:

Miller is one of the last nationalists who had come to work in Trump's White House, after Gorka, who had been working as Trump's counterterrorism expert, left his post on Friday, just a week after Bannon left the White House and went back to Breitbart News.

Gorka had been well known for defending Trump through his appearances on cable news programming, but in his resignation letter, given to The Federalist he said he was resigning because there are "forces" that did not support Trump's "Make America Great Again" populist focus.

He also told Trump in his letter that "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. This was made patently obvious as I read the text of your speech on Afghanistan this week."

Gorka claimed he resigned, but a White House official said that he did not.

"Sebastian Gorka did not resign, but I can confirm he no longer works at the White House," a White House official commented.
