Who is Sebastian Gorka?
Sebastian Gorka is a prominent media personality and analyst who is currently associated with Salem Radio Network and NewsMax TV.
He was a former government employee who worked for the Trump administration for only seven months as a deputy assistant to the president, starting in January 2017 and ending on August 25, 2017.
Throughout his tenure of seven months as a member of the Trump administration, Gorka took part in many different kinds of intense news interviews to defend the administration’s policies on national security and foreign affairs. Gorka has been labeled as an extremist by several national security experts in academic and policymaking circles.
Sebastian Gorka Ethnicity / Nationality
Gorka, who was born to Hungarian parents in the UK and spent between 1992 and 2008 there was naturalized as an American citizen in 2012. His parents escaped to the UK, and on February 25, 1963, they were granted British citizenship after the unsuccessful 1956 anti-Soviet rebellion.
Sebastian was brought up to value freedom by parents who grew up under nazism and subsequently fled to Communist Hungary.
His interest in talk radio began at a young age after witnessing all these incidents. He used to listen to London Broadcasting Company shows late at night as a child, using a small transistor radio under his pillow.
Sebastian figured out how to combat dictatorial concepts. Whether they are fascism, communism, or global jihadism, he linked with his unique familial background and his upbringing under the tutelage of the conservative warrior Margaret Thatcher.

Gorka has been classified as conservative by certain individuals. However, he has been considered far-right by others. He voiced his disagreement with the intention of the Trump administration to send more military personnel to Afghanistan in August 2017.
