Ana, John, & Michael Shure. White House policy adviser and Trump loyalist Stephen Miller tried to finish his combative conversation with CNN’s Jake Tapper after the cameras stopped rolling on Sunday but the anchor wanted no part of it, according to a CNN source. Miller, an architect of Trump’s immigration policy, was cut off by Tapper during an appearance on “State of the Union” during a heated interview. The CNN anchor eventually said, “I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time,” when the two men couldn’t come to an on-camera agreement regarding Michael Wolff’s controversial anti-Trump book.
Steve Bannon might be trying to get back into President Trump‘s good graces, but if the White House’s latest statement is any indication, that bridge might’ve burned down for good. As the president flew to Nashville to give a speech to the American Farm Bureau Federation, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley held a press conference with reporters on Air Force One. The Trump Administration is still reeling from the firestorm caused by Bannon’s remarks to Michael Wolff, and when Gidley was asked about this on Monday, he suggested that the administration is not going to accept Bannon’s recent halfway attempt to apologize. President Donald Trump slammed reports questioning his mental stability in a series of tweets Saturday morning, writing he's a "very stable genius" after the publication of an exposé about his first year as President put the White House into damage-control mode.
