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. Fox News spokeswoman Carly Shanahan confirmed his hiring to the Associated Press on 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.
