'That's OUTRAGEOUS' Trump aide lambasts CNN reporter for savage attack on immigration bill


The fiery exchange comes after the billionaire tycoon announced he will introduce the Raise Act – Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment – to scale back the number of immigrants entering the country legally.

He said the legislation would favour those who could already speak English and financially support themselves and their families – as well as “demonstrate skills which will contribute to our economy”.

Journalist Jim Acosta grilled Mr Trump’s adviser Stephen Miller during a heated press conference.

Acosta said: “This whole notion of ‘well, they have to learn English before they get tot he United States’ – are we just going to bring in people from Great Britain and Australia?”

But Mr Miller fumed at the question and scolded the reporter.

He replied: “I am shocked at your statement, that you think only people from Great Britain and Australia would know English.

“It reveals your cosmopolitan bias to a shocking degree… no, this is an amazing moment.”

Acosta then accused the Trump administration of “trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country” with the policy.

Mr Miller said: “That is one of the most outrageous, insulting, ignorant and foolish things you’ve ever said.

“The notion that you think this is a racist bill is so wrong and so insulting.”

Announcing the policy, said it was about cracking down on “unskilled immigration”.

He said: “The Raise Act will favour applicants who can speak English, financially support themselves and their families, and demonstrate skills which will contribute to our economy”

“This will protect you as workers from being displaced – they can’t just immediately come in and collect benefits.

“We will give American workers a pay raise by reducing unskilled immigration.

“There are sacred bonds between America and its citizens.

“Newcomers will be assimilated, they will succeed and will achieve the American Dream.”
