During a Sunday appearance on Maria Bartiromo’s show, Trump aide Stephen Miller complained that if voting rights are expanded, Republicans may never be in the majority again.
When Donald Trump left the White House for Florida, he kept a couple trusted aides with him. Stephen Miller is among those advisers. And the controversial Miller has regularly been appearing on Fox News to parrot Republican talking points.
Today, Miller spoke with Maria Bartiromo about H.R. 1, a bill aimed at eliminating Republican voter suppression efforts. The host asked, “That’s the whole point of H.R. 1, Nancy Pelosi wanting to put this bill through so that Democrats are in charge forever or certainly decades. Your thoughts on election integrity and that Democrat [sic] H.R. 1 bill.”
The guest responded, “H.R. 1 is saying, now that we’re in power, let’s fundamentally change the rules of how elections are conducted to stay in power.”
Miller later continued, “That’s a very scary thing,” Miller said. “And so if you care about democracy, you should all say with one voice, no, it is the right of every state in this union to set their own election rules as desired by their own citizens to protect the security and integrity of their own elections. That’s fundamental!”
