Embattled Presidential Deputy Assistant Sebastian Gorka has resigned from his post in the White House, The Federalist reported.

In his resignation letter, Gorka cites "forces" at odds with the "Make America Great Again" dream as the reasoning behind his exit.

"[G]iven recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are – for now – ascendant within the White House,” Gorka's resignation reads. “As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People’s House.”

Gorka has been linked to racist anti-Semitic groups in his home country of Hungary, causing much of the media and Internet backlash against him.
