Senior Policy Advisor, The White House
Miller is another of the rapidly dwindling original group of Trump’s campaign menagerie. With Bannon gone, the fiery crowd warmer of campaign days has acquired more power as the chief White House ideologue and guardian of the populist promises that got Trump elected. Miller established his combative style with the immigration executive order in February 2017, within less than a month of Trump’s arrival in the White House. In his famous on-air shouting match with CNN’s Jake Tapper he displayed the classic traits of a faithful apparatchik. But most striking was his authoritarian tone on CBS’ “Face the Nation”: “The powers of the President to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned,” he said in regard to Trump’s travel ban and immigration policies.
