How S. Miller works his wonders: stirring up Trumps ire

Miller's conservative media backchannel

Quartz's Heather Timmons has some very interesting reporting about the White House and the Washington Examiner:

When Nielsen "pushed back on implementing a new, draconian W.H. directive on immigration," Timmons says, Stephen Miller "relied on a special trick to force her to relent." Miller "would leak the latest numbers on apprehensions or asylum seekers at the border to reporters at the right-leaning Washington Examiner." The Examiner, she says, would write a story "with an alarming headline about the growing number of people crossing into the US, sometimes criticizing Nielsen. Then Miller would print the story out, and get a paper copy to Trump. Trump, ever sensitive to bad press, particularly from conservative outlets, would read the report, then pick up the phone and blast Nielsen, they said, and she'd capitulate on the issue at hand..."
