Senior White House Advisor Stephen Miller is being considered for Communications Director, People’s Pundit Daily has learned. While he’s not the frontrunner, it’s the latest in a push-and-pull between the populists in the White House led by Steven Bannon and those chosen from the more Establishment wing of the party.
Mr. Miller, who perviously served as a top policy advisor to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is beloved by President Donald J. Trump’s base. Like Attorney General Sessions, he has been a strong proponent and effective surrogate of his immigration agenda.
The Trump Administration is looking for what is now their fourth communications director since the President was inaugurated.
In late May, GOP Establishment pick Mike Dubke, who was rumored to have been a leaker, left after only three months on the job. Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary, stepped into the role but resigned on July 21 when Anthony Scaramucci was hired.
Mr. Scaramucci resigned after only 10 full days on the job, a demand made by the new Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Mr. Miller has repeatedly demonstrated he can defend the Trump Administration and their policies against what has now become an openly hostile White House Press Corps. Last week, he “absolutely bludgeoned them” when he came out to speak to reporters about the RAISE Act.
The Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy Act, or the RAISE Act, reforms America’s legal immigration to a merit-based system that benefits U.S. workers. The policy is supported by more than 70% of the American people, according to most surveys.
When attacked by CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, Mr. Miller made such a fool out of him that memes were trending for more than 24 hours.
