Gorka Defends Trump Against McCain Criticism

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

By    |   Tuesday, 17 October 2017 10:14 AM

Dr. Sebastian Gorka lashed out at Arizona Sen. John McCain's criticism of President Donald Trump's foreign policy, telling "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday that "you can be a hero but you can also not know what you are talking about."

"John McCain hasn't seen a war he didn't like in the last 20 years," said Gorka, Trump's former deputy assistant. "And that's not who the president is. The president believes that it's America first and the idea that you just criticize him from the sidelines. This is a man who doesn't want to be interventionist. He uses force where it's necessary, for example, with those cruise missiles strikes in Syria and the 21,000-pound bomb in Afghanistan. But to say we need more of the kinds of things we saw in the last 16 years. Sen. McCain, no we don't."

When asked what he thought of former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon's continued fight against the GOP establishment, especially as Trump tried to show a display of partnerships and friendship on Monday with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnnell, Gorka said "it's a very short list" of what the Republican establishment has done for the president.

"This president came on an agenda, November the 8th and was a clear message to the RINO establishment that you can't get elected on an agenda, come to DC and then renege on it and not come through with all the things you promised," Gorka stressed. "So it's time to rattle those cages a little bit. I think Mitch McConnell's cage was rattled. And It's about time, because this president was the outsider. He wasn't part of the GOP establishment. And there is a reason a man who never held public office is now the president of the United States."

Gorka praised Trump for maneuvering in order to advance his agenda.

"Remember, the president's platform was make America great again, not make the GOP great again. And he'll work with anybody… Remember that dinner with Chuck [Schumer] and Nancy [Pelosi]. That's a message. That's a broadside to the GOP that I've got to get things done. You don't want to help me, I will talk to somebody else … get on board or get out of way."

Gorka added that he was confident that tax reform would be accomplished this year.
