Gorka: WH Staff High-Fived Stephen Miller After Exchange With CNN's Acosta

White House staff praised senior policy adviser Stephen Miller after his tense exchange with CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, said Sebastian Gorka, President Donald Trump's deputy assistant. 

"We were high-fiving with Stephen afterwards," Gorka said Thursday on WMAL AM 630's "Mornings on the Mall" show.

Miller and Acosta argued about the proposal of a merit-based immigration system during a Wednesday press briefing.

"It was a masterful, masterful example of how we are interested in the facts and the truth and the prosperity of the nation and how we have to deal with grandstanding reporters who think it's their press briefing and not the White House's," Gorka said Thursday, adding that he did not believe the incident would change the way the Trump administration holds press briefings.

"I don't think Jim Acosta is that powerful that we'd reconsider our internal policies because of one individual's bloviating," he continued. "It is a sad indictment. We are there to serve the American people, not Jim Acosta."

"It's just another example of how the mainstream media, or as the president calls it, the fake news, is so out of touch with America," Gorka added.
