Former Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka, who returned to Breitbart News after resigning from his post last Friday, took parting shots at his former colleagues in several interviews.

He told Fox News' Brian Kilmeade on Monday he was "puzzled" with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's declaration Gorka was "completely wrong" for criticizing President Donald Trump's foreign policy goals and for his claim the president's team removed any references to radical Islam or radical Islamic terrorism in his Afghanistan speech.

"I don't expect counter-terrorism expertise from a former oil industry mogul, but to say that the president's speech on Afghanistan shouldn't be about radical Islamic terrorism, it should be about all forms of terrorism," Gorka said, referencing Tillerson's previous role as CEO of Exxon Mobil. "I would like to hear the secretary tell me about all the animal rights terrorists or the white supremacists terrorists that are coming out of the Hindu Kush or Tora Bora."

During a radio interview Saturday with Steve Malzberg for WMAL Radio in Woodbridge, Va., Gorka said many of the people who helped Trump win the election – including former chief strategist Steve Bannon – were "systematically undermined."

"I realized after the president's speech this week on Afghanistan that he's not being well-served," Gorka said. "That speech was written by people for the president in direct contravention of everything that we voted for November the 8th."

On Sunday, Gorka told BBC Radio 4 that West Wing insiders would have rather worked for Hillary Clinton.

"There's no conspiracy theory here, and there's no central leader," he added. "They are individuals who, if you look at their career, they clearly would have been very comfortable working for Hillary Clinton in her Cabinet, and, as such, they don't really represent the victory of Nov. 8."

Gorka told Kilmeade the MAGA agenda has to come back into the building.

"Donald Trump may have been the formal Republican candidate, but he wasn't the establishment's candidate," he said. "He wiped the floor with all the establishment candidates who never took him seriously. . . . If the GOP thinks they won the election they will be sorely disappointed, and they will pay the price come the next election."
