Stephen Miller: Sean Spicer Is, As Always, 100% Correct


Donald Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller weighs in on the controversy surrounding WH press secretary Sean Spicer's decision to comment on Nordstrom pulling Ivanka's products from their stores.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, it was the Republican chair of the House Oversight Committee, Jason Chaffetz, who said she crossed the line in that statement. It wasn't just the media. That is the Republican chair of the House Oversight Committee.

And on that point, because it gets to a deeper issue, Sean Spicer, from the podium, said the decision by Nordstrom to pull those products of Ivanka Trump was a direct attack on the president's policies.

Sears and K-Mart this week have decided to pull Mr. Trump's home furnishing lines from their Web sites.

Is that a direct attack on the president's policies, as well?

MILLER: I'm not going make a comment on that. I don't have any information on it. I do want to say that Sean Spicer, as always, is 100 percent correct and that what he said is true and important. And I agree with it.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So then you are making a comment on it?

MILLER: I'm not going to make any new comment. I'm going to stand by the White House press secretary and his comments. And I'm also going to call for sanity in discussing this issue.

You had a case where somebody was treated unfairly. The president stuck up for a member of his family. And the White House counselor made a light-hearted, flippant comment that nobody would interpret as being what has been cast as right now by you and the media and others.

And I think that everybody has taken this to a degree and to a level it does not merit. And I really hope, George, we can move on to discussing things that the American people care about, like their jobs, like their wages, like their security, like the fact that we have a president who has done more in three weeks than most presidents have done in an entire administration.
