Angry That Biden Hasn’t Painted Wall, Trump Plans Border Visit

Jason Miller, senior advisor to former President Donald Trump, revealed that he may soon be traveling to visit the U.S. border but the trip won't be immediate since he's reportedly trying to avoid "creating the impression that he's "showboating" about the issue," Mediaite reports.

During an appearance on The Michael Berry Show, Miller leveled a litany of complaints about the situation unfolding at the border as he criticized President Joe Biden for tapping Vice President Kamala Harris to oversee the issue.

Describing the situation as an "absolute crisis," Miller said, "And then to make matters worse, Joe Biden throws gasoline all over the fire by putting Kamala Harris, Mrs. Open Borders herself, in charge of the entire Southern border?" Miller said. "I mean if this doesn't scare the you-know-what out of you, it should."

Then, the host Michael Berry asked, "Do you foresee the [former] president making a visit to the border?"

Miller admitted that Trump had discussed doing so. "You know, we discussed that recently," he said. "I can see him doing that soon. One of the things that I think President Trump wanted to let Joe Biden go and fail on his own before he goes and steps in on that."

However, Miller insists the trip may not be anytime soon because Trump does not want it to appear like a publicity stunt. He added, "I think there's a very fine line between calling someone out on the policies and then appearing to do something that's showboating, or give Joe Biden an opportunity to point and say 'See? You know this isn't serious work, President Trump is down at the border making a scene out of this,' and allowing Joe to essentially weasel out for not having to go himself."

Miller also suggested that Trump is not happy about the wall not being painted. He added that "it is something that President Trump is really concerned about. All of his hard work. They won't even paint the wall. They were supposed to paint the wall this month. So it would be a black color as opposed to the rust color because elements and such. And Biden has even stopped that."

Despite Miller describing the border situation as a "crisis," the Associated Press reportedly sent guidance to its reporters this week advising them to refrain from describing it with that term.

Trump Aide Miller Finally Admits Biden Is ‘Legitimate President’

Jason Miller, one of former President Donald Trump's senior advisors, recently pushed back against the former president's election theft conspiracy theory and the QAnon theory questioning the legitimacy of Biden's presidency.

On Thursday, March 4, Miller appeared on Mediaite's podcast The Interview, where he participated in a discussion with the publication's editor-in-chief Aidan McLaughlin. From the presidential election conspiracies and voter fraud claims to Trump's recent appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and his future in politics, Miller shared details about Trump's post-presidential life as he admitted the truth about the election.

While discussing the CPAC and Republicans' remarks on election reform, McLaughlin noted that many of the CPAC attendees he spoke with still believe the presidential election was stolen from Trump. With that being said, McLaughlin asked if Miller found that concerning. In response, Miller made his stance clear.

"Joe Biden is the is the legitimate president," Miller told McLaughlin as he recalled Trump's remarks on the morning of January 7 after the Electoral College certified the results of the election. He added, "That put to rest any question or an issue once the electoral votes were counted. That is the formal structure within our constitution."

Miller added, "There's no debate and no question there." However, he did attempt to pose arguments about election practices on state and local levels as he expressed concern about mail-in voting, drop boxes, and other voting practices included in Trump's misinformation campaigns.

During his recent speech at CPAC, Trump made clear he still disputes the legitimacy of the election: "The Democrats used the China virus as an excuse to change all of the election rules without the approval of their state legislatures, making it therefore illegal." (Courts have uniformly disagreed with this claim.)

Miller projects that Trump will likely be returning to social media in some form by the end of the spring. Trump's future political plans remain unclear, though he suggested at CPAC that he may run again.

#EndorseThis: Trump Flack Jason Miller Eviscerated In 'Deadbeat'

Nobody knows how to take down a Republican hack like another Republican (or former Republican) hack. Which is why we clicked instantly when this Lincoln Project video about Jason Miller popped up on the screen. What, you've never heard of Jason Miller, the Trump campaign spokesman? Most days you can find Miller on TV, spouting vicious nonsense about his betters, like Col. Alexander Vindman or Sen. Kamala Harris.

Of course the Lincoln Project team knows their old colleague Miller well – and what they find amazing is that anyone would employ him, invite him as a guest, or listen to him for more than ten seconds. It's even more amazing that he still opens his loud mouth to criticize anyone else after what he has done and confessed.

But you can decide what to make of Jason Miller after watching "Deadbeat." Warning: It's R-rated and extremely funny.
