He will not be missed:

A senior White House official confirmed to The Hill on Sunday that Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to the president, will be departing that role as soon as "this summer."

The same official said that Gorka, 46, was brought in to the Trump administration to initially provide big picture, counter-terrorism expertise. 
 
"To defeat extreme Islamic terrorism, you can't kill your way out of the problem. A plan is needed to defeat the ideology the same way Nazism was defeated" the official, who asked not to be named, said. 
 
"[Gorka] was here to provide an overall strategy in that regard." 

Gorka will take an outside position that deals with the "war of ideas" regarding radical Islamic extremism, sources told The Washington Examiner on Sunday.

He has served as both a national security adviser and on the Strategic Initiatives Group, which is an organization within the White House, according to the publication.
