Chris Wallace Makes Stephen Miller Explain Trump’s Old Tweets: ‘That Isn’t AOC, That’s Donald J. Trump’

Fox News brought on controversial White House advisor Stephen Miller on Sunday to answer for the racist ‘send her back’ chants that erupted at a recent Trump rally and the tweets from the president that set up those chants.

Miller faced off with Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace and the pair got into a contentious back-and-forth. In one moment, Miller referenced an old quote from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in which the congresswoman said that moderate health care policies are “10% better from garbage.”

The Trump administration has repeatedly tried to say that Ocasio-Cortez was calling America garbage. Outside the White House on Friday, Trump told reporters that the young congresswomen “can’t call our country and our people ‘garbage.'”

On Sunday, Miller argued that AOC is “saying that America, in her view, is garbage.”

To that, Wallace showed Miller a tweet from Trump in 2014, in which he wrote, “The United States, under President Obama, has truly become the ‘gang that couldn’t shoot straight.’ Everything he touches turns to garbage!”

“That isn’t AOC, that’s Donald J. Trump,” Wallace said.

But Miller doubled down on his defense of his boss, saying, “throughout this interview, Chris, you’re continuing to conflate Donald Trump’s criticisms of President Obama versus AOC’s deep and systemic criticisms of the country itself.”

The White House aide added, “These four congresswomen detest America as it exists, as it is currently constructed. They want to tear down the structure of our country. They want it to be a socialist, open-borders country. If you, as Donald Trump said, want to destroy America with open borders, you cannot say you love your country.”

Watch the video below:

President Trump’s feud with the four congresswomen extended into another week on Monday as he spent the morning attacking them on Twitter and calling them a “very racist group of troublemakers.”

Since when is criticizing policy the same as hating the country? Can ANYONE raise their hand and say they have never once openly criticized a policy here in the US or even a sitting US president?

I am a huge critic of my favorite sports team – but i still wear the jersey every Sunday.
