WATCH: Stephen Miller vs Jim Acosta – Stephen Miller schools CNN’s Jim Acosta on American Values and President Trump’s Immigration Reforms
Stephen Miller vs Jim Acosta – During the White House press briefing this afternoon, White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller had a contentious exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta, with Miller calling one of Acosta’s statements “outrageous,” “ignorant,” “insulting,” and “foolish.”
Miller took the podium on Wednesday afternoon to discuss President Trump announcing his support for the Raise Act, which would reduce the rate of legal immigration in the United States. CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked whether the bill is in violation of the United States principle to “give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses,” which is etched onto the Statue of Liberty. Miller dismissed this and downplayed the significance of the Emma Lazarus sonnet that Jim Acosta was quoting.
