Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., no stranger to saying how she feels, called a senior member of the Trump administration a "white nationalist" Monday afternoon.
Omar tweeted this in response to a claim senior White House adviser Stephen Miller was behind pulling the nomination of a candidate to serve as the director of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement:
"Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage."
Acting ICE director Ron Vitiello was picked to serve as director of the agency, but the White House withdrew the nomination in a surprise move late last week. It has been alleged Miller was pushing for someone with a stronger stance on the subject of illegal immigration, which led to President Donald Trump pulling the nomination.
