Sebastian Gorka told Fox News that the Trump administration is going to wipe ISIS off the face of the earth.
This is the sort of talk which has been lacking for the last eight years.
The Hill reported:
President Trump’s counter-terrorism adviser on Saturday compared Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants fleeing the Middle East for the U.S. to scurrying “cockroaches,” vowing to “obliterate” the extremist group.
“We’re going to obliterate ISIS. We’re going to wipe them off the face of the Earth,” White House deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro.
“But before we get all of them, what’s going to happen? Some of them, like the cockroaches, when you switch the light on they’re going to scurry. We want to stop them coming here.”
Trump’s executive order barring citizens of six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. is geared toward blocking militants traveling from the Middle East to the U.S., Gorka said, arguing that domestic threats do not pose a significant security concern.
“So it’s not the person flying from L.A. to New York that’s the threat,” he said. “It’s the ISIS recruit, who’s traveling out of Mosul, out of the Middle East, out of Syria.”
