A former deputy assistant to US President Donald Trump says that major changes at the White House over the summer have left the president feeling “isolated.”
In an interview with the Hill, Gorka said House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are living in a “fantasy illusion.
Gorka said the two Republican leaders in Congress have failed on promises made to the American people, most importantly on repealing and replacing ObamaCare.
“I don’t think [Ryan and McConnell] are working against [Trump], but they’re definitely not working with him,” Gorka said in the phone interview.
“They still live in this fantasy illusion that November 8 was their victory as much as it was the president’s and they will pay a penalty for that mistake and belief,” he continued.
“I would say Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan’s credibility is lost and unrecoverable.”
