Each week on his show, Dr. Gorka hits back hard against legacy media, Big Tech, and the Washington Swamp. He is unafraid to challenge the top politicos and newsmakers – as he exposes their disregard for the founding principles of the American republic. Dr. Gorka is a former Strategist and Deputy Assistant to President Donald J. Trump and host of the nationally-syndicated radio show AMERICA First.

Born in Great Britain to parents who escaped Communism during the Hungarian Revolution, he served in the British Territorial Army in a military intelligence unit. After coming to America, he served as a Defense Department instructor teaching at the National Defense University in Fort McNair.

Prior to joining President Trump’s White House, he spent two and a half years at Quantico, as Chair of Military Theory teaching at the Marine Corps University and War College.

He remains a guest-instructor for the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, Fort Bragg.

He is the author of several books including Why We Fight, Defeating America's Enemies with No Apologies.

Last year. President Trump appointed Dr. Gorka to the Defense Department's National Security Education Board.
