Donald Trump’s top aide Stephen Miller defended the president’s recent plan on immigration during a heated exchange between CNN’s Jim Acosta. Twitter users decided to give Miller a piece of their mind.
Trump introduced a new policy that will force people to know English and have a required set skill in order to apply for a U.S. citizenship.
Acosta confronted Miller about the president’s recent policy, saying that it violates what the Statue of Liberty’s poem stands for.
In response Miller went crazy and attacked the CNN journalist.
Twitter had their share of fun responding to Miller’s attack:
Stephen Miller is what white nationalism looks like in 2017. It's not KKK rallies & hoods, it's well-spoken, educated bigots in suits.
