NEW YORK (AP) Fox News announced on Wednesday, Nov. 8, it 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 saying Gorka would serve as a national security strategist for the network.
The British-American Gorka worked as a national security aide to President Trump from January to August, when Gorka told the AP he resigned from the administration. A Trump administration official disputed that claim, saying Gorka didn’t resign but “no longer works at the White House.”
Gorka is a former editor of the Breitbart News website whose hard-line view on immigration and terrorism led to discord inside and outside the White House.
