Stephen Miller: Term 'Racist' Used By The Left To Punish People, Suppress Speech They Don't Want To Hear

|

CHRIS WALLACE, 'FOX NEWS SUNDAY' HOST: "Send her back", that is the phrase and the debate that has consumed Washington and much of the country this week. Critics of the president's comments say, urging four congresswomen to go back where they came from is hateful. But Mr. Trump says he won't stand for some of the things the so-called "Squad" says about this country.

Joining us now, top White House advisor, Stephen Miller.

Stephen, welcome back to "FOX News Sunday".

STEPHEN MILLER, SENIOR WHITE HOUSE POLICY ADVISER: Great to be here. Thank you, Chris.

WALLACE: You are the president's senior policy advisor and his chief speechwriter.

His tweets this week about those for congresswomen, and let's put them up: Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came -- are the latest in a long string of controversial comments by Mr. Trump, some of which I know that you helped draft.

Here are a few.

DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I want him to show his birth certificate. There’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like.

They are bringing crime, they are rapists, and some I assume are good people.

Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.

You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.

WALLACE: Why shouldn't someone see all of that as racist?

MILLER: I think the term “racist”, Chris, has become a label that is too often deployed by the left, Democrats in this country simply to try to silence and punish and suppress people they disagree with, speech that they don't want to hear.

The reality is that this president has been a president for all Americans, whether you look at historically low black unemployment rates, historically low Hispanic unemployment rates, or if you look at what he's doing on immigration to protect safety, security, rising wages for all American citizens.
