GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has named Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions chairman of his foreign policy advisory committee, Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller told Fox News Channel Wednesday night.

Miller told "The Kelly File" host Megyn Kelly that Trump made the appointment about a week ago. The public announcement comes as Trump was mocked online after saying on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday that his foreign policy adviser was himself. 

"I'm speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I have said a lot of things," Trump told "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Miller said Trump was simply saying that he is the person who will be guiding foreign policy.

Even though he does not have a military or political background, Trump "somehow as a businessman … managed to see what the people in Washington couldn't see," Miller said, including the threat of Osama bin Laden and the mistake of the Iraq War.

"That's a very big distinction between him and, say, Sen. [Ted] Cruz, who is reflexively interventionist," Miller said.

Kelly pressed Miller for other members of the committee, but Miller said he had no further news to make on that front now.

"Shouldn't there be some military folk in there?" Kelly asked.

Miller noted that Sessions has been on the Senate Armed Services Committee for 20 years and has the needed knowledge.

"Who is Ted Cruz's guy? Who's John Kasich's guy?" Miller asked. "I can tell you that Donald Trump has chosen Jeff Sessions, and he's been putting together a team of foreign policy advisers, intelligence experts."
