Fox News hires for­mer Trump aide Se­bas­tian Gorka

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - KICK OFF -

NEW YORK — Fox News has hired Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s for­mer aide Se­bas­tian Gorka as a con­trib­u­tor.

Fox News Chan­nel host Sean Han­nity an­nounced the hir­ing on his ra­dio show Wed­nes­day, say­ing that Gorka will serve as a na­tional se­cu­rity strate­gist for the net­work. A Fox News spokes­woman con­firmed his hir­ing to The As­so­ci­ated Press Thurs­day.

The Bri­tish-Amer­i­can Gorka worked as a na­tional se­cu­rity aide to Trump from Jan­uary to Au­gust, when Gorka told the AP that he re­signed from the ad­min­is­tra­tion. A White House of­fi­cial dis­puted that claim, say­ing Gorka didn’t re­sign but “no longer works at the White House.”

Gorka is a for­mer Bre­it­bart News edi­tor whose hard-line view on im­mi­gra­tion and ter­ror­ism led to dis­cord in­side and out­side the White House.
