Understanding President Trump: An Insider's View on the 45th President

November 7th,2018 | 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Jefferson Educational Society, 3207 State Street
Professor / Instructor / Speaker: Sebastian Gorka

If you watch cable news, the odds are good that you've heard his name. A former Deputy Assistant to President Donald Trump, he remains one of the President's staunchest defenders long after he left the White House amid the ouster of Trump aide Steve Bannon in August 2017, and continues to make regular appearances to discuss the Trump White House. And while calling the Trump White House unconventional may be an understatement, studying and understanding its inner-workings makes the feat all the more exciting and fascinating, as the populace, be draped in either red or blue, remains intrigued by the 45th President's approach to the executive branch of the United States.

Enter Sebastian Gorka.

Gorka, 47, who was born in London to Hungarian parents, lived in Hungary from 1992 to 2008, and became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 2012. He has worked for the Hungarian Ministry of Defense and, following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, became a public figure in Hungary as a counterterrorism expert. He has since served in a number of roles related to terrorism and security.

After leaving the White House, Gorka, who earned a B.A. degree from the University of London and a Ph.D. from Corvinus University of Budapest, became Chairman and CEO of the Threat Knowledge Group and a national security strategist for FOX News. From 2014 to 2016, he was an editor for national security affairs for Breitbart News, where he worked for Bannon, whom he followed in and out of the White House.

To better understand President Trump and his headline-inducing White House, who better to hear from than someone who generates and comments on those headlines? Especially just one day after the mid-term elections.
