White Nationalist Richard Spencer: Gorka’s Departure ‘Not Good News’

White nationalist Richard Spencer called Sebastian Gorka’s apparent departure from the White House “not good news,” viewing the move as part of broader tensions between globalists and nationalist in the Trump administration.

“Gorka (however imperfect) was on Team Bannon (however imperfect). It indicates a shift towards the Kushnercons,” Spencer wrote on Twitter.

“Team Bannon” is a reference to Trump’s aide Stephen Bannon, former head of Breitbart News, a “platform for the alt-right.” “Kushnercons” is a reference to Trump’s Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner, who members of the “alt-right” see as driving a more globalist agenda in the White House and having played a role in the airstrike against Syria.

“It was Gorka who announced, a week or so after the Syrian bombings, that neoconservatism would not be revived,” Spencer wrote, referring to comments Gorka made to Fox News.
