Bannon Issues Apology for Attack on Trump's Son

Bannon Issues Apology for Attack on Trump's Son

Stephen Miller, a White House policy adviser, told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday that the President is "a political genius".

During the interview, Miller characterized the new book about the Trump administration, "Fire and Fury, " which was released January 5, as "a work of very poorly written fiction".

Miller took aim at comments attributed to Steven Bannon, the now-disgraced former White House aide whose quotes in Michael Wolff's book triggered acrimonious replies by Trump and his supporters.

The author of the explosive new book on the Trump administration has claimed that "the 25th Amendment is a concept that is alive every day in the White House".

"Steven, I'm trying to get to the issue of the president's fitness", Tapper said.

During the contentious interview, Miller offered largely combative responses and focused on presenting Trump as a "political genius", repeatedly refusing to answer questions until Tapper chose to cut him off and move to the next segment.

Miller repeatedly described Trump as a "political genius" and complained about the unfair treatment during the interview.

Growing frustrated as Miller began evading questions and repeating his talking points, and glowing praise of Trump, Tapper cut him off early and went to a commercial.

Bannon Issues Apology for Attack on Trump's Son

Wolff was granted unusually wide access to the White House during much of Trump's first year at the behest of former Trump strategist Steve Bannon, who advised the president during his first months in office and during his presidential campaign.

'Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration, ' Trump wrote.

In the book, Bannon predicted that the special counsel investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation would "crack" the younger Trump "like an egg on national TV". "Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!"

Tapper then called Miller "obsequious, ' saying he "wasted enough of our viewers" time" and that there was 'only one viewer he was concerned about'.

White House officials said their records showed that Mr. Wolff had last talked to the president in February, but Mr. Wolff said he had talked to the president several times after that.

"Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart", the president said in a tweet. "The president's tweets absolutely reaffirm the plain spoken truth: self made billionaire who revolutionized reality TV, and tapped into something magical that's happening in the hearts of this country".

Miller on Sunday echoed the language of the White House's statement to attack Bannon as well as CNN. You're being a factotum in order to please him.
