On Tuesday, President Donald Trump accused Deputy Ilhan Omar of targeting Jewish people after calling White House adviser Stephen Miller a white nationalist.
"What is completely unacceptable is for Congesswoman [sic] Omar to target Jews, in this case Stephen Miller. & # 39; Jeff Ballabon, B2 Strategic, CEO. @Varneyco, "Trump tweeted, referring to a segment on the Fox Business network.
Democratic representative Ilhan Omar called the White House adviser, Stephen Miller, a & # 39; white nationalist & # 39; about a report that he pushed President Trump to a tougher line about immigration – a movement that resulted in a massive commotion in the Ministry of Homeland Security.
Criticism: Donald Trump attacked Ilhan Omar, the Muslim-American congresswoman, who his assistant Stpehen Miller a & # 39; white nationalist & # 39; called
& # 39; WHITE NATIONALIST & # 39; – CLAIMED BY OMAR
Democratic congressman Ilhan Omar & # 39; s description of Stephen Miller as a & # 39; white nationalist & # 39; places him – in her view – in the same broad field as the KKK and demonstrators in Charlottesville in 2017.
White nationalism is meant to suggest that Miller sees whites as one race and that the US. is a white country that will not benefit from the arrival of non-white immigrants.
The term has been used interchangeably with & # 39; white supremacism & # 39 ;, the belief that the white & # 39; race & # 39; better than others.
But academics studying the field have made a distinction between nationalism and supremacy, so Omar does not necessarily have to blame Miller for being an outright white supremacist.
Miller is more complicated Jewish, and white nationalism usually went hand in hand with anti-Semitism.
But some white nationalists have the & # 39; white race & # 39; rearranged, including Jewish people, including Jared Taylor, who are seen as an important thinker in the movement.
& # 39; Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still influences policy and political appointments is an outrage, & she wrote on Twitter.
She has come under fire earlier because of some of her comments about Israel.
In her tweet, she links to an article about Splinter that reported that Miller, an anti-immigration hard-liner who was the architect of the president's travel ban, pushed Trump to withdraw his nomination from Ron Vitiello to lead US immigration and customs handling .
Miller was also the driving force behind last year's government policy to separate migrant children from their parents who crossed the border illegally.
Omar, who is one of the first Muslim women in Congress, came under fire earlier this year for suggesting that supporters of Israel urged lawmakers to be loyal to a foreign country.
It was at least the third time that Omar forced older, pro-Israeli democrats to put the House in an uncomfortable territory in relation to US-Israeli policies. The first was her claim, later withdrawn, that money Jews buy the support of US lawmakers with a strategy that & # 39; everything has to do with the baby of Benjamins & # 39 ;.
The House eventually adopted a resolution condemning all hate, but the Republicans criticized the Democrats for not including Omar's name.
Democratic representative Ilhan Omar called White House adviser, Stephen Miller, a & # 39; white nationalist & # 39;
She quoted a report that Stephen Miller, known as an anti-immigration hawk, was pushing Trump to a harder line on the issue
Meanwhile, Vitiello's withdrawal from the customs job last week led to a chain reaction that led to the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Sunday evening.
Trump said he had withdrawn the Vitiello name because he wanted someone & # 39; harder & # 39; lead the Immigration Enforcement Office.
& # 39; We're going in a slightly different direction & # 39 ;, he said on Friday. & # 39; Ron is a good man, but we are going in a harder direction. & # 39;
Miller is & # 39; extremely skilled & # 39 ;, an official told The Washington Post, blaming others if his ideas didn't work.
Nielsen reportedly did not get & # 39; heads-up & # 39; when the White House took back the name Vitiello.
Her meeting with the president on Sunday evening would be about Vitiello. She was blinded by the fact that the White House dropped him, in addition to the ongoing immigration crisis, and asked her to resign.
Trump followed Nielsen's offshoot with more pink slip Monday, and pushed the director of the US secret service Randolph & # 39; Tex & # 39; Everything on the heels.
At least three other top officials say that they are doing the job due to a threat.
Putting everything overboard and challenging others is an indication of the growing authority of Miller, the 33-year-old former staff member of then-Sen. Jeff Sessions. Everything, Cissna, Grady, and Mitnick were on a list of officials Miller had labeled as removal as & # 39; too soft & # 39 ;, according to a White House official.
A White House source with knowledge of the ins and outs of the West Wing last week told DailyMail.com Monday that Miller had argued internally for Nielsen & # 39; s fires, and for Everything to follow her out the door.
Miller is known as a keen promoter of aggressive immigration policies that Democrats have been pushing the boundaries of federal law and too often contest court precedents.
