Trump Goes After 'CNN Flunky' Jake Tapper After Stephen Miller Interview

Stephen Miller Donald Trump aide Trump inauguration day speech Donald Trump speechwriter

"You have 24 hours of negative, anti-Trump, hysterical coverage on this network that led in recent weeks to some spectacularly embarrassing false reporting from your network", said Mr. Miller, the White House's senior advisor for policy.

He said that Mr. Trump had initially flattered him about the project, and that he had told interview subjects that "the president said he likes this idea" of a book. He also spared no love for Trump's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. This week, the president released a statement slamming Bannon, whom he said "lost his mind".

Manafort should have know the Russians "are duplicitous, cunning and not our friend", Bannon said.

After excerpts from the book leaked early last week, the White House decried it as pure "fiction", but the president reserved his fiercest anger for Bannon, who was pushed from the White House in August but - over the objection of many aides - remained in Trump's orbit, with the two men speaking by phone occasionally.

He's bemoaning what he called the country's "very weak" libel laws and making the case that he's actually "really smart", as he put it, and indeed, a "very stable genius". Asked if folks in the White House talked about that possibility, he added: "All the time".

"I've had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President".

Miller described Wolff as a "garbage author of a garbage book". Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well.

Members of the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers flooded the airwaves on Sunday to vouch for the president's intellectual bona fides and to attack Wolff.

SA tourist dies in Egypt balloon crash: ministry official
At least 19 tourists were killed in 2013 when the balloon in which they were travelling caught fire in Luxor. Also, balloons are now monitored by 22 cameras during the flight, San Francisco Chronicle reported.

On Sunday, he appeared on CNN's State of the Union with Jake Tapper to defend his boss amid the furor surrounding Michael Wolff's explosive new book. He also termed Bannon's comments in the book "vindictive" and "out of touch with reality".

Tapper, sensing that Miller was catering to a very specific viewer with his comments, said, "I'm sure he's watching and he's happy you said that".

CIA Director Mike Pompeo (pahm-PAY'-oh) gives President Donald Trump his regular intelligence briefings, and says Trump is fully engaged, understands complex issues and asks hard questions.

"We talk about some of the most serious matters facing America and the world, complex issues, the president is engaged, he understands the complexity, he asks really hard questions of our team at CIA", Pompeo said on "Fox News Sunday".

Tapper eventually cut off the interview after a heated exchange in which the senior Trump aide called the anchor "condescending" and CNN "fake news".

Others have said that Bannon has told them that Trump will eventually come back around when he needs him and that he plans to use his Breitbart platform to wage fights with the party establishment over spending and immigration this spring.

He said Mr. Bannon's role had been "greatly exaggerated", even as the CNN host Jake Tapper ticked off a long list of policies he said Mr. Bannon had played a key role in formulating. It should go without saying that Miller's performance was aimed squarely at Trump, but Tapper said it anyway. White House officials said Sunday that there was no immediate desire to accept his apology, though one added that Trump had harbored an inexplicable soft spot for Bannon for months, even as his allies told him to dump the former chief strategist. The entire interview can be seen in the second video.
