Stephen Miller, a former senior advisor to former President Donald Trump, urged Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to not go forward with his stated plan to file a motion to oust Speaker Kevin McCarthy this week.
Miller made the remarks during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo as Gaetz appeared on Sunday morning shows announcing his intentions to oust McCarthy — which many Republicans say is about a personal issue that Gaetz has toward McCarthy.
McCarthy had put forth a continuing resolution last week to keep the government open that included spending cuts and funding border security but Gaetz and a few other Republicans rejected it.
“I think, at this point in time, it’s very clear that Kevin is not going to be going anywhere,” Miller told Bartiromo. “He has the support of 218 members.”
“And I understand, and I need to help everybody rise above,” Miller said. “I understand all the emotions that are playing out right now. But, for the love of God, we are losing this country, and we are losing it fast. Republicans need to unify around the twin mission of stopping the open border invasion and stopping a government that has been weaponized against conservatives and Christians and anyone who does not subscribe to the tenets of the radical left.”
“And that means we need to get moderates on board and conservatives on board, and even means that people are going to have to make compromises on spending levels to pass these bills,” Miller continued. “That means you’re going to have to agree to spending levels you might not like, but to get the policy that you want. And then you need to get Senate Republicans, as I said, in the game, Maria.”
“We need 40 Republicans to stand up and say no to open borders, no to weaponized government,” he concluded.”Put the pressure on the Democrats who are in cycle. Put pressure with them and their voters. Make them understand that they will lose their seats if they don’t get on board.”
