TRUMP ADVISER ACCUSED OF HATE LINK
SEBASTIAN Gorka, Donald Trump’s antiterrorism adviser, has been accused of being a member of the antisemitic group Vitezi Rend, established by wartime Hungarian leader Miklos Horthy.
Last week, US news site the Forward cited interviews with members of Vitezi Rend, who claimed Mr Gorka was sworn in as a member of the group.
However, an article in Tablet challenged the allegations and quoted Mr Gorka saying: “I have never been a member of the Vitez Rend. I have never taken an oath of loyalty to the Vitez Rend. Since childhood, I have occasionally worn my father’s medal and used the ‘V’ initial to honour his struggle against totalitarianism.” The Forward responded by reaffirming its three sources in Vitezi Rend and pointed out that when Mr Gorka issued an statement on the matter through the White House he had failed to deny being a member of the group.
