Trump aide Gorka: A superpower no more, USA is now a hyperpower

White House defends silence on mosque bombing, says it might have been faked by liberals

Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton visited the mosque on Sunday and called the bombing a "wretched" terrorist act.

When directly asked if Trump would comment on the Minnesota bombing, Gorka responded, "When we have some kind of finalized investigation, absolutely".

"The question of who does it, when people fake hate crimes in the last six months with some regularity, it's wise to find out what's going on before you make statements when they could turn out to be not who you are expecting", Gorka quickly interjected, interrupting the reporter.

In an interview on CNBC, Gorka stated that "we've had a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes by right-wing individuals in the last six months that turned out to actually have been propagated by the left". "So let's wait and see and allow local authorities to provide their assessment".

On Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation accused an Israeli teen of making bomb threats to USA schools and Jewish community centers more than 100 times since January. Presumably, that's what Gorka was referencing.

MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle asked Gorka.

"That's fine, and I'm sure the president will do that", he responded. Except no it's not and will he really? Could there be another reason? Since the attack, Trump has tweeted approximately two dozen times, but no words of support for the Minnesota community.

Or previous year in Orlando.

Following Trump's comments warning North Korea against continuing their nuclear threats on Tuesday - and Pyongyang's response - the US president took to Twitter early Wednesday to boast about America's powerful nuclear arsenal. In June, he condemned a terrorist attack in the Philippines that might have just been a robbery, and he spoke out against the London attacks nearly instantly via Twitter. "Whether you voted for him or not, whether they're a Democrat or whether they're a Republican, these are trying times". Neither are white supremacists' acts of violence and intimidation targeting young women of color.

As Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attempted to downplay any "imminent" threat of war with North Korea, White House adviser Sebastian Gorka on Wednesday continued to fan the flames with a starkly different message that mirrored the president's pugnacious remarks the day before.

GORKA: I'm not going to give social media advice to a man who basically won the election in large part thanks to his understanding of social media, and to destroy the fake news industrial complex's predictions about who would win the last election.

North Korea's advancement in its nuclear weapons program Tuesday was met with criticism from President Donald Trump, who threatened "fire and fury" should the country attack the United States. "Count to ten. And the president will do what he deems fit", he said.
