(National Sentinel) Security First: White House senior adviser Stephen Miller said Thursday during an interview on Fox News that he was confident POTUS Donald Trump was going to “win” the fight to fund and build his long-sought border wall.
Miller told host Laura Ingraham of “The Ingraham Angle” that “this stand that we’re taking right now with the entire nation watching, and frankly the whole world watching, is a stand that we think we’re going to win.”
Earlier this week during a televised contentious meeting with incoming House leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., POTUS said he is prepared to allow the government to shut down partially if he doesn’t get his $5 billion request for border wall funding in next year’s budget.
“If we don’t get what we want one way or the other … I will shut down the government,” Trump said. “I am proud to shut down the government for border security because the people of this country don’t want criminals with lots of problems and drugs pouring into the country.”
Miller says POTUS believes Democrats, who don’t want to see a wall built, are on the wrong side of the issue as far as most Americans are concerned.
“The Democrats are fighting for illegal aliens. Donald Trump is fighting for American citizens. That’s what this whole thing’s about,” Miller said. “This is about sovereignty. It’s about working men and women. It’s about safe communities. It’s about wages, living conditions, quality of life.
“This is the battle right now right before our very eyes. We are going to win because Donald Trump is not backing down,” Miller added.
“Donald Trump came into office and has turned that all around, getting tough on China on trade, renegotiating NAFTA, cracking down on illegal immigration, dealing with unskilled low-wage migration, [and] reorienting our foreign policy,” Miller said. “All these issues, Laura, that have affected working people in our country for decades, he’s turning around.”
