A former deputy assistant for national security to President Donald J. Trump told Big League Politics that Americans can expect a continued commitment to keeping campaign promises, especially repealing Obamacare, from the Trump administration moving into the new year.
“He’s kept his promises, whether it’s removing us from the Paris Accord, whether it’s recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, whether it’s crushing ISIS,” said Sebastian L. Gorka, a leading defense expert, who has returned to the Washington-based The Institute of World Politics and he is the author of Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War. The world-renowned counter-terrorism expert spoke at the Student Action Summit on Thursday in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Gorka said that the Trump administration has driven a stake through the heart of President Barack H. Obama’s signature legislation by repealing the Obamacare individual mandate in recently-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
“The national security agenda is going to continue with the stabilizing of threats to the United States, continuing the extreme vetting and immigration reform,” the British-born professor said.

Gorka said that there is still work to be done, such as the repeal of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. “The big muscle move, of course, for the next year after the tax reform is going to be Obamacare.”
Now, it is up to the GOP to step up to the plate for the president with a “repeal and replace” package that they have been promising for the last seven years, he said. “So, no big surprises, just keep on trucking.”
Ciara C. Carter, a student from New Mexico attending this year’s Turning Point USA convention, told BLP that she is glad Gorka talked about the impact of open borders on national and economic security. “I’d really love him to jump into strengthening the immigration laws, particularly on the southern border.”
Thomas M. Pastor, a student from Florida, said Gorka is right about Trump winning on his agenda. “I feel like Trump is already on such a great track in fulfilling the promises he made during his campaign.”
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
