nearvideo Stephen Miller, President of Trump vs. the ‘squad’
Senior White House policy adviser Stephen Miller joins Chris Wallace for an exclusive interview on ‘Fox News Sunday.’
Trump administration senior policy adviser Stephen Miller is to deny that President trump has played the race card in his last attack against four minority women in Congress, and says that the group, known as the “squad” has said much worse.
Miller recalled the comments of Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., said, however, that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, was “perhaps the most shocking of all,” if you described detention centers on the southern border as a “concentration camp”. He noted that this was personally offensive to him.

“I am a Jew. As a Jew, as an American Jew, I am deeply outraged by the comments of the Ocasio-Cortez”,” Miller Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, say, Ocasio-Cortez, “said “minimized the death of 6 million of my Jewish brothers and sisters”, and “Malt every Patriotic law enforcement officer as a war criminal.”
Miller brought that in response to questions whether some of the trump of the last remarks should be considered racist, not just the last words, directed at Ocasio-Cortez and the other freshman women in Congress, but the birtherism claims of President Obama, remarks on Mexico to the criminals across the border, and then-candidate Trump’s proposal for a Muslim ban. Miller objected to allegations that Trump is racist, and said that Democrats use it as a tactic to discredit those who disagree with them.
“I basically do not agree with the view that, if you criticize someone, and they happen a different color skin, that it was said in a racial criticism,” Miller,. “If you want a color-blind society, that is, you can use the immigration policy to criticize, you can ask the views of the people you can ask, to criticize, where were you born, and not as a race.”
Wallace asked if this also means you can say, “Go back where you came from.”
Miller moved that the reference to the President of Trump’s tweet that drew cross-party counter-movement, the “send them back” chant from those in attendance at a North Carolina rally.
“The President was clear that he was of a different opinion,” Miller said about the vocals. Wallace pointed out that this is after the fact, and that Trump was the song at 13 seconds.
The discussion later moved to Trump’s claims that the “squad” hates America. Wallace played a clip of Trump self-criticize, that America, say, in the past, including — the President — “We have a lot of murderers, what do you think our country is so innocent?” in comparison to Russia.
“Why is that, what has been said by these women in the Congress, in General, worse than what you just heard Donald Trump say?” Wallace asked.
Miller said it is about the underlying sentiment about the country and the direction of the speaker, to take it.
TRUMP SAYS THE SQUAD IS “THE DESTRUCTION OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY”
“Everyone in the office running — right, left or center — always points out where they think America can do better, where you think, that America must go. But there is a fundamental difference between people who think we need to lean in and to strengthen America’s basic values, whether it is our constitutional values, the rule of law, the principles of Western civilization, or people who think that we basically think that we need to America in Venezuela.”
Wallace said, calling President Barack Obama “ignorant,” or the comparison of America to Putin’s Russia has nothing to do with the Constitution.
Miller reiterated his view that Trump and the “squad” have ideological differences with the Trumpf philosophy as the “America First”.
