The "MAGA train" will not be derailed by "ideological zealots" and the "dregs of utopian idealism" after protests attempted to disrupt what was a successful G-20 trip for President Donald Trump, a top White House adviser said Sunday.
"We have had feedback that this was really perhaps the best speech the president has yet given," Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to the president, told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y.
"It leveraged the key themes of his administration: an unapologetic acceptance of what we stand for as a nation, and who we stand with shoulder to shoulder as part of Western Civilization.
"The Make America Great Again train just keeps on going down the track."
Gorka said President Trump and the White House remain undeterred by detractors, including the protesters in Hamburg, Germany.
"It's clearly people who are infected by the dregs of utopian idealism," Gorka said of the demonstrations against Trump. "The people who don't understand what happened in the 20th century. How we have to fight the ideologies that promise all kinds of perfection on Earth and ended up killings tens of millions of people.
"Ronald Reagan was right. He said, 'The loss of liberty is always but one generation away.'"
Trump's "America First" doest not "mean, at all, 'America alone,'" Gorka added.
"We bring the goodwill to the table — whether we are talking to [Germany] Chancellor [Angela] Merkel, whether we are talking to Vladimir Putin — and the question is, how does the other side react?" Gorka told host John Catsimatidis. "That's what the G-20 meetings are all about."
President Trump's administration stands in a stark contrast to the one led by former President Barack Obama, who Gorka alluded to having fanned the flames of fire around the world that President Trump is left to put out.
"This is a very different kind of president," Gorka told Catsimatidis. "We are proud of what America stands for.
"We wish to be clear: Creating vacuums around the world as we had in the last eight years leads to very, very dangerous situations [in North Korea, the Middle East, and Crimea]. We can't have those vacuums. We are here to lead."
That leadership will come no matter the resistance, Gorka concluded.
"The MAGA train — the Make American Great Again train — isn't decelerating, and it's not even just maintaining speed," he said. "If you look at what the president achieved in just the last 25 weeks, we are accelerating.
"And we will not be stopped, because we will exercise to full extent the mandates the American people gave Donald J. Trump on Nov. 8."
