After publicly facing off with President Trump's senior policy advisor, Stephen Miller, Wednesday over the administration's latest push to reduce legal immigration and simultaneously implement a merit-based system, CNN's Jim Acosta said he thinks he came out on top:
- "I think what you saw unfold in the briefing room is that he [Miller] really just couldn't take that kind of heat and exploded before our eyes."
- "It's not often you're accused of a cosmopolitan bias from someone who went to Duke University wearing cufflinks in the White House briefing room," Acosta later said on CNN.
- Context: During yesterday's WH press briefing, Acosta asked whether the administration was favoring immigration from English-speaking countries. Miller shot back, "Your cosmopolitan bias is showing."
