Trump Taps Anti-Muslim Katharine Gorka for CBP Press Sec.

HeadlineJun 19, 2019

Katharine Gorka, a Homeland Security adviser and wife of far-right former Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka, has been tapped to become the new press secretary at Customs and Border Protection, according to CNN. Katharine Gorka, a political appointee who previously wrote for far-right outlet Breitbart, is known for her anti-Muslim views. At DHS, Gorka was involved in cutting funding to groups that assist people who want to leave white supremacist groups. Sebastian Gorka left the White House in 2017 after reports emerged of his ties to a Nazi-allied group and racist paramilitary militia while he served as a Hungarian politician.
