The 33 year old Trump White House point man on anti-immigration policy went after President Bush in a BIG way….
Miller seems to be carrying the water for his boss , Donald Trump’s harder line on immigration, which Bush approached much different as a Republican President…His comments support Trump, who thought and thinks that the US military efforts in the Middle East where wrong…Trump is NOT an internationalist…He wants American to go back to old time’s and look only inward, something this country has made sure it doesn’t do with the memories of Pearl Harbor and 911 attacks….
White House senior adviser Stephen Miller on Sunday went after former President George W. Bush’s record on immigration, asserting that the rise in illegal crossings during his administration represented an “astonishing betrayal.”
“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace questioned Miller on President Trump‘s decision to declare a national emergency to secure funding for a wall along the southern border, noting that illegal crossings were down significantly from the year 2000.
Miller responded by attacking Bush’s record on immigration.
“As you know, when George Bush came into office, illegal immigration total doubled from 6 million to 12 million by the time he left office,” Miller said. “That represented an astonishing betrayal of the American people. I’m not gonna sit here today and tell you that George Bush defended this country on the southern border because he did not.”
Trump and his advisers frequently use Bush as a punching bag.
The president has slammed George W. Bush for making the “worst single mistake” in U.S. history by invading Iraq, mocked his brother former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush repeatedly while on the campaign trail in 2016, and poked fun at George H.W. Bush last year over his use of the phrase “thousand points of light.”….
Is it just me……or does the guy seem like a dweeb?
