White House aide Stephen Miller is taking criticism after saying on Aug. 8 that President Donald Trump is the best politician of the modern era.
"President Trump is the most gifted politician of our time," said Miller to Laura Ingraham, who was filling in as host on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
"He's the best orator to hold that office in generations."
Many voiced their vehement disagreement via Twitter.
"My 9-year-old son is a better orator than [Donald Trump]," read a post by one Twitter user.
"Simply 'the best' orator, if one is in fifth grade," read a tweet by another. "Oh sorry, second grade."
"I was actually thinking if I can compare my two year old grandson to trump. It was a very close call who speaks better," tweeted yet another Twitter user.
Miller also serves as a speechwriter for Trump, according to the Daily Mail.
"[Trump] is the leader of this nationwide and worldwide populist movement and it's about uplifting working class people -- black, Hispanic, white, all backgrounds," continued Miller.
"There are certain Republicans that don't want that message to resonate and a lot of Democrats as well," responded Ingraham.
Miller reportedly aligned himself with Trump's stances on many issues, including the president's adversarial relationship with some of the media.
"The extreme media is going to do whatever they can to tear down this president," said Miller. "The media has gotten the president wrong since the day he announced and every day since. And he has been right, and they have been wrong."
Miller reportedly touted Trump's policy agenda, voicing the president's intentions to pursue trade policy "that creates more manufacturing jobs for our workers in Detroit and Baltimore and all over the country," as well as "immigration policy that uplifts Hispanic and African American workers into the middle class."
"These are policies that are going to help minority workers and traditional Democratic constituencies, and we're going to keep making inroads," added Miller, according to Yahoo News UK.
Miller also said Trump was increasing the popularity of the GOP brand.
"The Republican party is the hot commodity right now in politics, not just in America but in the world. It's the exciting place to be," said Miller to Fox News Radio. "We're the reformers, we're the change agents, we're the folks talking about shaking up Washington. This is the hot party right now and is because of President Trump."
